Thursday's matinee features a good 'ole pitching duel, as Danny Salazar and Chris Archer face off in Tampa Bay.

Salazar enters with a 1-0 record after a strong first outing against the Chicago White Sox. The right-hander allowed one run on two hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Archer has struggled to start the year, owning a 7.20 ERA over two starts. He allowed four home runs during his last outing in Baltimore. The 27-year-old was fantastic last year, finishing with a 3.23 ERA and 252 strikeouts in 212 innings.
