Rays v BoSox: Price looks for 2nd win, Escobar moved to 5th in order

ST. PETERSBURG The Rays will try to extend their season-high winning streak to seven games tonight during the second game of this three-game series with the Red Sox.
David Price hopes his allergies do not become a problem as he looks to win for just the second time this year.
Lefty Jon Lester is pitching for the Red Sox, which means Joe Maddon has just one left-handed batter in the lineup. That would be James Loney, who began the days as the major leagues leading hitter with a .381 average.
Maddon moved Yunel Escobar to fifth in the lineup, splitting Evan Longoria and Loney. Escobar is 8-for-26 lifetime against Lester, while Loney has never faced Lester.
Here are the lineups:
Lester LHP (5-0, 2.73)
Price LHP (1-3, 4.78)
