UPDATE, 2:23: The Red Sox scratched Martinez from the lineup due to back spasms. Here is the new lineup, with ex-Ray Steve Pearce, the World Series MVP, getting a start:
DEVELOPING: The Rays and Red Sox will try again today to play, and while the temperatures are still uncomfortable in high 40s and low 50s, at least it will be dry, a welcome change from Friday when the game was postponed by rain.
Veteran Charlie Morton, who was to start Friday for the Rays, will be on the mound today, facing the Sox on consecutive Saturdays. The Sox got a break as they planned to start call-up Josh Smith, but instead will turn to lefty David Price, the ex-Ray who has been their best starter thus far. Friday’s game will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader, which comes during a tough stretch for the Rays.
The Rays have a heavily right-handed lineup, with Christian Arroyo getting the start at third base.
