Sonnanstine, Rays go for sweep



Rays righthander Andy Sonnanstine, who boasts a team-leading 13 wins, will try to tie the club-record for victories in a season today as the Rays try to sweep the White Sox.

Sonnanstine is one shy of Rolando Arrojo (who won 14 in 1998).

The Rays loaded their lineup with righthanded hitters as the White Sox start LHP Mark Buehrle; backup C Shawn Riggans will get another nod behind the plate, which will give Dioner Navarro back-to-back off-days before the team opens a nine-game homestand.

Tampa Bay (79-49), which boasts the best record in the majors, have not lost a series since the All-Star break (10-0-1).
