Rays 5/2/14 Starting Lineup
- We approve of this tweet from the Rays skipper, Joe Maddon:
Proud of our boys . All the convoluted stuff yesterday, then spending all day in Fenway’s diminutive clubhouse made it tough to win a split.

- Rays roster moves: As planned, relief pitcher Brad Boxberger was sent back to Durham.
- You wouldn’t see Boston’s manager doing this:
- Evan Longoria has 12 homers at new Yankee Stadium, most of any visiting player.
- In 36 starts on road at AL East parks, David Price has a stellar 22-3 record, 3.16 ERA.
- Per Elias, the Rays are the first team to come from behind to win two one-run games in one day at Fenway since ’34, by the White Sox.
- Don’t forget, you can read about tonight’s pitching match-up, and more, in our series preview.
