Rocking Cleveland ....



The Rays look to snap a three-game losing streak tonight as they open a four-game series in Cleveland before heading into the All-Star break.

"We're looking to do some damage here this series and try to win it,'' said Rays pitcher James Shields, who starts Friday.

With the Indians starting a left-hander, rookie Aaron Laffey, the Rays are using their more right-handed lineup, which means no Cliff Floyd or Eric Hinske, as Jonny Gomes and Willy Aybar are playing.

The lineup:
Iwamura, 2b
Crawford, lf
Upton, cf
Pena, 1b
Longoria, 3b
Navarro, c
Aybar, dh
Gomes, rf
Zobrist, ss
Sonnanstine, p
