Rays set roster for Indians game; Moore, Archer in relief


CLEVELAND – The Rays announced the roster for tonight’s wild-card game against the Indians.

It includes nine pitchers and three catchers. Outfielder Kevin Kiermaier, who made his major-league debut in the bottom of the ninth inning Monday when he replaced Sam Fuld in center field, made the roster.
