A day of (semi-) rest

Carl Crawford won't be in leftfield today as manager Joe Maddon is giving him a day off his feet, using Crawford as his DH. Elijah Dukes will make his first start in leftfield with Rocco Baldelli going back to centerfield. Crawford said he welcomed the break, though his career numbers as a DH aren't particularly good - a .150 average by going 6-for-40.

Saturday's win was the 12th time the Rays have come from behind to come out on top, the most in the majors. It was also the third time this season they came from behind in the ninth inning to win, matching the Tigers, Mets and A's for most in the majors and matching their total such wins from last year.
