Rays at Red Sox lineups, on a somewhat sunny Saturday

The Rays, again, have Charlie Morton as their starter, and the Red Sox are sending David Price to the mound.

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:

Benintendi lf

Betts rf

Moreland 1b

Bogaerts ss

Devers 3b

Chavis 2b

Pearce dh

Bradley cf

Vanquez c


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.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Diaz 1b

Pham dh

Robertson 2b

Garcia rf

Zunino c

Kiermaier cf

Heredia lf

Adames ss

Arroyo 3b

Morton p

And here is the Red Sox lineup:

Benintendi lf

Betts rf

Moreland 1b

Martinez dh

Bogaerts ss

Devers 3b

Chavis 2b

Bradley cf

Vanquez c

Price p
