DEVELOPING: After what he admitted was "an awful tough" week dealing with fallout from an incident involving  umpire Tom Hallion, Rays ace David Price is looking forward to getting back on the mound tonight and pitching against the Rockies.

Price picked up his first win of the season in that Sunday game in Chicago and hopes to build off of that tonight.

The Rockies are starting veteran RHP Jon Garland, who hasn't faced them since 2008.

The Rays are coming off Friday's 7-4 10 inning win, in which Evan Longoria singled in Ben Zobrist in the 10th and then Kelly Johnson hit a two-run homer.

Lineups shortly.
