UPDATE, 11:34: Rays lineup, as expected, without Molina and Escobar:
DEVELOPING: Coming off their impressive 10-4 victory, in which they racked up season highs in runs and hits, and saw LHP Matt Moore rack up his MLB-high matching fifth victory, the Rays take on the White Sox this afternoon seeking a split of their four-game series.
And the Rays will have LHP David Price on the mound, though Price is still seeking his first win of the season. Price feels he has pitched better than his 0-2, 5.52 record indicates, and that he hasn't had many breaks.
The Sox are starting RHP Dylan Axelrod, who is also seeking his first win.
SS Yunel Escobar is expected to miss his fourth straight game due to tightness in his right hamstring.
