Red Sox – Rays lineups, Game 3

ST. PETERSBURG — To quote one of my favorite movie lines ever (courtesy of fictional character Lou Brown from ‘Major League’): “We won a game yesterday. We win one today, that’s two in a row. We win one tomorrow, that’s called a winning streak. It has happened before.”

For the Rays, it can happen on Saturday night, when they host the Red Sox in the third of a four-game series at 7:08 p.m. ET. It would be the Rays’ first three-game winning streak of the season if they can beat Tim Wakefield.
Couple of changes for Tampa Bay with the veteran knuckleballer on the other side. Ben Zobrist will take the place of Jason Bartlett at shortstop, and Gabe Kapler will man right field.
