Watch for …
Price check: Price is coming off a solid, but unsuccessful, outing against Texas. He hasn't pitched well against the Angels (1-2, 5.14 in five games, including a rough April 29 start at the Trop) or in Anaheim (1-1, 5.11).
Chat time: Chatwood has been pitching well, allowing one earned run or less in four of his past five starts, and is better at home (2.87 ERA) than away (4.71). He has left eight of his 10 starts tied or ahead. He had a May 1 no-decision in his only start vs. Rays.

Beach boys, not Beach Boys
What started as a dress-up theme keyed to the Beach Boys evolved into players wearing board shorts, flip-flops and T-shirts and tank tops for the flight to Southern California. "I just heard 'Beach,' " DH Johnny Damon said. LHP David Price, right, took it the furthest, with blue swim goggles and an orange float ring.
Lending a hand
Rays manager Joe Maddon will play a small part tonight in the Angels' celebration of their 50th anniversary season. Former players are throwing out first pitches at all 81 home games. When OF Rick Reichardt does, Maddon, who spent 31 years with the club, will catch it.
