For starters, Rays vs Yankees on Fourth of July
The Rays will go for a three-game sweep of the first-place Yankees today in a Fourth of July matinee at Tropicana Field.
LHP David Price, recently named an All-Star, will get the start on the mound, tied for the league-lead in wins with 11. The Yankees start RHP David Phelps, making his third big-league start.
Jeff Keppinger, who has seven RBI in 10 games since coming off the DL, is in the cleanup spot.
*RHP Jeremy Hellickson (right shin bruise) said he's good to go for Thursday's start in Cleveland.
*Still no DH/OF Hideki Matsui in the lineup, though it looks like he's going to test his tight left hamstring by running with head athletic trainer Ron Porterfield before today's game.
