Rays – Marlins Game 1 lineups

MIAMI — Yes, the Rays are still expected to play a game tonight. It’s been raining down here all week, but the skies look clear for now — phew! Gabe Gross is in the lineup today instead of last night’s hero, Ben Zobrist. Manager Joe Maddon said he liked the matchup with Gross and Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco better.

Gross has himself a daughter

ST. PETERSBURG — Gabe Gross is now a dad.

At 11:39 a.m. ET in Alabama, his wife, Kelly, gave birth to a seven-pound, five-ounce girl named Allie Lee Gross.

Red Sox – Rays lineups, Game 4

ST. PETERSBURG — “We have to get back to winning series,” is what designated hitter Pat Burrell said after Saturday’s 10-6 letdown against the Red Sox.

The Rays will have one last chance to do it against Boston on Sunday afternoon.
Dioner Navarro will get an off-day behind the plate because of the quick turnaround — giving way to Michel Hernandez — Ben Zobrist will start for the second straight game — this time in right field as Jason Bartlett returns to shortstop — and Tampa Bay will be without the services of Gabe Gross.
But he has a legitimate excuse.
Gross flew to Alabama on Sunday as his wife, Kelly, is expected to give birth to their first girl. Manager Joe Maddon said he expects the 29-year-old outfielder back by Tuesday’s game against the Orioles.

Game 1 lineups for Red Sox – Rays

ST. PETERSBURG — Not many surprises here. Both teams’ catchers will have an off-day on Thursday, and Jason Bartlett said his left hamstring — which forced him to leave Wednesday’s game after the top of the fifth inning — is just fine. Gabe Gross will get his ninth start of the year in right field, and Michel Hernandez will get his fourth starting nod behind the plate to give Dioner Navarro a rest.
