Good afternoon from the Trop, where the Rays will look to James Shields to get them back on track in Game 2 of the World Series, but also hope their offense comes through with a better showing tonight against Brett Myers than it did yesterday against Cole Hamels.

The new additions to the lineup tonight are as expected, with Cliff Floyd in the DH slot and Rocco Baldelli playing right field. Baldelli has never faced Myers, but Floyd has had considerable success agianst the right-hander, hitting .364 with two doubles, three homers and eight RBIs agianst him in 33 career at-bats.

Here’s the Rays’ full lineup:

Iwamura 2B
Upton CF
Pena 1B
Longoria 3B
Crawford LF
Floyd DH
Navarro C
Baldelli RF
Bartlett SS
Shields P
