Rays' Moore to start Tuesday


CLEVELAND (AP) - Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore, who is tied for the American League lead in wins, will make his next start Tuesday against Detroit.

Moore (8-0) started Friday night against Cleveland but didn't return after pitching the first inning because of the game's third rain delay, which lasted 2 hours and 39 minutes.

Rays manager Joe Maddon said Moore could have started Sunday but the Rays chose to stick with Jeremy Hellickson. Tampa Bay is off Monday and begins a three-game series in Detroit. Moore was originally scheduled to pitch the series finale Thursday but Maddon decided to move him up two days.

Right-hander Alex Cobb, who missed his last start because of a cut finger, will start Wednesday while Roberto Hernandez will pitch Thursday.
