Tampa Bay's miraculous run to the postseason could easily end today, as Rays righty Jeremy Hellickson takes the mound at the Trop for Game 4 against the Rangers.

Texas turns to lefty Matt Harrison, who went 13-9 in the regular season with a 3.42 ERA.

Behind rookie Matt Moore in Game 1, the Rays went out and dominated the Rangers 9-0 to take away home field advantage. But Texas went on to win Games 2 and 3 to put Tampa Bay on the brink of elimination.
