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:
Price LHP (3-1, 2.63)
Holland LHP (2-1, 4.78)
