The Rays reach the end of the road tonight as they take on the Yankees in the Bronx to wrap up their schedule away from the Trop.

Rookie RHP Jake Faria will make the start in place of free-agent-to-be RHP Alex Cobb, who was shut down for the year after reaching 179 1/3 innings in his last start.

The Yankees will be going with veteran RHP Sonny Gray, who seems to lined up to pitch a potential  division series opener next week if they survive the wild-card game.

The Rays are 37-43 on the road, compared to 39-39 at home.

Here is the Rays lineup, with a trio of reserves starting tonight in the outfield:

Smith RF,
Dickerson DH,
Longoria 3b,
Duda 1b,
Ramos c,
Hechavarria SS,
Robertson 2b,
Puello lf,
Bourjos cf,
Faria P

And here is the Yankees lineup:
Gardner lf
Judge rf
Sanchez c
Gregorius ss
Castro 2b
Bird 1b
Headley dh
Ellsbury cf
T. Frazier 3b
Gray p
