Saturday in the park, part one



For Saturday's first game, manager Joe Maddon is resting 3B Akinori Iwamura and C Dioner Navarro, with both expected to start the night game. For the matinee, Ty Wigginton is at third and Raul Casanova behind the plate.

Also, though it seems the Rays are likely to send RHP Jae Kuk Ryu right back to the minors to make room for Game 2 starter J.P. Howell, there's a chance they could do something different. One complication is that LHP Casey Fossum's wife is due to deliver a baby any day and Fossum would be gone for a couple days so the Rays don't want to be short on pitching. As it is, they have 13 pitchers and a three-man bench.

Game 1 lineup:

Harris, ss
Crawford, lf
Upton, cf
Pena, 1B
Young, rf
Wigginton, 3B
Gomes, dh
Casanova, c
Wilson, 2b
