For starters, Rays vs. Indians

18

July

UPDATE, 5:47: Maddon said he liked going with the same lineup for consecutive days, the key being that C Jose Lobaton matched up better with Indians starter Justin Masterson, while Jose Molina is a better choice vs. Ubaldo Jimenez on Thursday. ... OF Matt Joyce said he was a little sore this morning after his return from the DL on Tuesday, but felt good enough to play again. ... OF Sam Fuld continues to do well on his rehab at Triple-A Durham, and Maddon said it was possible he could return before the end of the homestand.

UPDATE, 3:51: Rays lineup, the same as last night: 
Upton cf,
Pena 1b,
Zobrist 2b,
Joyce rf,
Keppinger 3b,
Scott dh,
Jennings lf,
Lobaton c,
Johnson ss,
Hellickson p

BREAKING: The Rays are looking - once again - to build on their previous day's victory when they take the field tonight againts the Indians.

RHP Jeremy Hellickson, who had good stuff but not a good result in his first post-break start, will be on the mound tonight against Cleveland's Justin Masterson.

The Rays have won back-to-back games just once since late June, when they took two straight from the Yankees July 2-3. Before that, you have to go back to the doubleheader sweep at Philadelphia June 24. And before that, to June 17 and 19.

Indians lineup:
Choo rf
Cabrera ss
Kipnis 2b
Brantley cf
Santana c
Hafner dh
Damon lf
Kotchman 1b
Hannahan 3b
Masterson p
