Special K: Rays starter Scott Kazmir has pitched extremely well against the A's, going 6-2, 2.70 in 11 starts. And he's been pretty good in Oakland, going 3-2, 3.40 in seven games. SS Orlando Cabrera is 2-for-14 off him, and DH Jason Giambi 2-for-19 (with eight strikeouts).

Young and wild: A's starter Trevor Cahill is a 21-year-old who split last season between Single A and Double A, then jumped to the big leagues this year. He has a heavy fastball and a tricky knuckle-curve, and he's walked 13 in 17 1/3 innings.

Holliday treat: New A and former Rockie Matt Holliday has played only six games against the Rays , but he's battered them, with a .400 average (11-for-25) with 3 doubles, 2 homers and 9 RBIs. That includes 2-for-2 with a homer vs. Kazmir.
