For starters, Rays at Twins

The Rays had a busy morning, with three players - LF Carl Crawford, 3B Evan Longoria and LHP David Price - named to the American League All-Star team.


Now they're focusing on finishing off a tough six-game road trip with a series finale against the Twins today at Target Field. They've won two of the last three in come-from-behind fashion, and would love to win four of six on this trip before heading home to face the Red Sox for three games starting Monday.

Right-hander James Shields takes the mound, looking to snap a seven start losing streak. Ben Zobrist is getting the day off, with Carlos Pena back in the lineup.
