Worth noting

• Thursday's flight to Chicago, following the Rays' matinee series finale against the Twins, will be their first themed road trip of the season: "Express Yourself With a Hat 2.0."

• To celebrate Earth Day, Rays fans could purchase a discounted seat in the lower level on Tuesday and receive a recyclable Tampa Bay Rays Earth Day tote bag.

Proceeds of each Earth Day ticket supported Tampa Bay Watch, a program dedicated to the protection and restoration of the Tampa Bay estuary through scientific and educational programs.
