ARLINGTON, Tx.
The Rays and Rangers finish this three-game series tonight on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, which has not been all that kind over the years to the Rays.

The Rays are 1-5 on Sunday night ESPN games, with the lone win coming against the Red Sox in 2010. Last year the Rays lost a 16-inning, 1-0 game to the Red Sox.

In other news, the Rays are trying to win their fourth straight series while the Rangers are trying to go 7-for-7 in series this season.

David Price, looking for his first career win against the Rangers, makes the start.

Rangers lefty Derek Holland will try to improve to 4-1 lifetime against the Rays.

Here are the lineups:

RAYS
Jennings LF
Peña 1B
Longoria 3B
Zobrist RF
Keppinger 2B
