Rays use DH in NL park

The Rays caught a break today when the Pirates said they could use a DH despite playing at McKechnie Field, a National League park.

This allows Matt Joyce, who has missed most of spring training with a calf injury to get four much-needed at-bats.

Of course, if those ugly, gray clouds blowing in from the south-east open up, no one will get any at-bats today.

Here are the lineups:

Gabe Kapler CF
Dioner Navarro C
Willy Aybar 2B
Carlos Pena 1B
Pat Burrell LF
Matt Joyce DH
Justin Ruggiano RF
Reid Brignac SS
Adam Kennedy 3B
Jason Hammel P

Nyjer Morgan LF
Andrew McCutchen CF
Ramon Vazquez 2B
Adam LaRoche 1B
Eric Hinske 3B
Brandon Moss RF
Jack Wilson SS
Jason Jaramillo C
Zach Duke P
