The Tampa Bay Rays didn’t exactly come out firing on all cylinders during their Game 1 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Friday afternoon, so they’re hoping some small lineup changes may do the trick.
Ben Zobrist, who batted second in Friday’s loss has been dropped down to fifth in the order while Wil Myers has been moved up. Also moved up is first baseman James Loney, who will be hitting third, this after hitting eighth in Friday’s loss.
For Boston, there are only two small changes. Third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who batted ninth in the Red Sox’s Game 1 victory has been moved up to seventh while David Ross, who will hit ninth, takes over the catching duties for Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
