For starters, Rays at White Sox, ahead of the rain

DEVELOPING: The Rays and White Sox are prepping for the third game of their scheduled four-day wrap-around series with the White Sox, with a forecast that calls for rain starting tonight and continuning all of Monday.

But first things first, and after beating the White Sox 4-0 last night, the Rays have ace David Price on the mound today, while they will be facing RHP Scott Carroll, a 29-year-old making his big-league debut for the White Sox.

By the Rays count, Carroll will be the 25th pitcher to make his debut in a start against them - they are 10-14 in those games, the pitchers are 9-7.

Among interesting notes from Saturday night, it was just the sixth time in Rays history a starter earned a win without a strikeout, Cesar Ramos joining Mark Hendrickson (who did it three times), Bryan Rekar and Tony Saunders.

Here is the White Sox lineup:
Eaton cf
Semien 3b
Abreu dh
Viciedo rf
Konerko 1b
Ramirez ss
De Aza lf
Flowers c
Beckham 2b
Carroll p
