Devil Rays look to rebound when ace takes the mound

Sep 15, 2007 - 1:02 PM Tampa Bay (61-87) at Seattle (78-68) 9:05 pm EDT

SEATTLE (Ticker) - After suffering a walk-off loss on Friday, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays will look to rebound when ace Scott Kazmir takes the mound against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

Kazmir (12-8, 3.65 ERA), who is 7-2 with a 2.82 ERA since the All-Star break, was brilliant in his last start against the Boston Red Sox. The lefthander struck out 10 over seven strong innings en route to a 1-0 victory.

Jose Guillen lifted a sacrifice fly to right field, plating Ichiro Suzuki in the bottom of the ninth as the Mariners edged the Devil Rays, 2-1, on Friday.

The Mariners remained 5 1/2 games back of the New York Yankees (84-63) in the American League wild card race. They are 7 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the the West.

Horacio Ramirez (8-6, 6.80) will try to give Seattle its fourth straight win when he toes the rubber on Saturday. The lefthander lasted just 1 2/3 innings in losing to Oakland in his last start. It marked his second straight loss.
