Developing: The Rays will go for a sweep today of the Red Sox, with potential All-Star game starter, LHP David Price, on the mound.

RHP Rafael Soriano was named to the All-Star team earlier today, an injury replacement for Yankees closer Mariano Rivera.

1B Kevin Youkilis is back in the lineup for the banged-up Red Sox, just one day after he had to leave Tuesday's game with an odd ankle injury.

Veteran knuckleballer Tim Wakefield will start for Boston, having struggled in his last two starts at Tropicana Field (0-1, 13.50).
