Blue Jays-Rays Preview

(AP) -- It took five starts for Chris Archer to make it six innings and set his team up for a win. J.A. Happ's encouraging return to the AL is a start away from reaching that length with nothing but consistency.

The Tampa Bay Rays ace and the Toronto Blue Jays returnee face off Saturday night at Tropicana Field as the visitors try to secure a series win.

Archer (1-4, 5.47 ERA) lost his first four starts before limiting Baltimore to five hits in 6 2/3 innings of Monday's 2-0 home win. Catcher Curt Casali said working in an effective changeup was key to throwing hitters off. In his career, he's thrown it 6.6 percent of the time, but he's at 11.1 this year.
