Action Jackson: Rays starter Edwin Jackson gave up a season-high 10 hits in Thursday's loss to the White Sox. He also will try to bounce back from his last outing at Fenway; he allowed nine hits and six runs in four innings on May 2.

Ace in the hole: Sox starter Josh Beckett is coming off two solid starts, surrendering two runs in each, and is appearing to return to form. He has made one start against the Rays this season, taking the loss despite allowing four hits and two runs (one earned) and striking out 13 on April 27.

Crawford time: All-Star leftfielder Carl Crawford could return after a sore hamstring kept him out of Tuesday's starting lineup.
