Do you think St. Pete and Tampa will ever have a logo like this?

The Rays will go with the same lineup tonight that produced 13 hits and 13 runs in Friday’s win, making this only the fourth time this season they have fielded the same lineup for consecutive games. They have never done it three times in a row.

David Price is looking to become the first pitcher in team history to post two seasons with at least 15 wins. He’s also looking to win his first game in three starts at Target Field.

Price, 14-4 with a 2.49 ERA, hasn’t lost since June 13. He is 6-0 with a 1.82 ERA in his last nine starts.

Evan Longoria, obviously, is back in the lineup for a fifth straight game. Ben Zobrist will make it three straight starts at third base.

Here are the lineups:

Jennings LF
Upton CF
Joyce RF
Longoria DH
Zobrist SS
Peña 1B
Keppinger 3B
Roberts 2B
Molina C

Price LHP (14-4, 2.49)

Revere CF
Carroll 3B
Mauer DH
Willingham LF
Morneau 1B
Mastroianni RF
Dozier SS
Butera C
Casilla 2B

Blackburn RHP (4-7, 7.42)
