Trying to stop the skid



The Rays, losers of five straight, will try to overcome Friday night's heartbreaking 2-1 walkoff loss tonight in the second game of the four-game series here in Cleveland.

The Rays will face tough left-hander C.C. Sabathia, who is a control freak. He hasn't allowed more than one run in any of his last 14 starts.

Left-handed hitters Carl Crawford and Carlos Pena are out of the lineup tonight, as are switch hitters Greg Norton and Dioner Navarro. Jorge Cantu gets a spot start at DH. Thunderstick Josh Wilson is back in the lineup, hitting seventh and playing 2B.

Here's the full lineup:
Iwamura, 3B
Harris, SS
Young, RF
Wigginton, 1B
Gomes, RF
Cantu, DH
Wilson, 2B
Casanova, C
Mohr, LF
