ST. PETERSBURG The Rays are hoping the third time is a charm and that Jeremy Hellickson’s solid outing last week against the Angels wasn’t an aberration as they try tp salvage the final game of this three-game series with the first-place Red Sox.
James Loney was moved to third in the order against Red Sox starter Jake Peavy because of Loney’s .321 average against Peavy.
The Rays begin the night with a one-game lead over the Yankees for the final Wild Card spot. The Yankees play the Orioles in Baltimore. The Orioles and Indians are each 1 ½ games back of the Rays.
Peavy RHP (3-1, 3.55)
Hellickson RHP (11-8, 5.04)
