8 a.m. ET: This rainout certainly worked against the Boston Red Sox (63-43). On Wednesday, David Price (5-5, 3.75 ERA) owned Boston, yielding just give hits and a single run while pitching a complete game and leading the Tampa Bay Rays (62-43) to a 5-1 win. The next night, the game was rained out, and, as the luck of the draw should have it, Price’s turn in the rotation comes up again Monday, when the Rays revisit Fenway Park for a single game to make up that postponement. So, in effect, the Red Sox draw the reigning American League Cy Young winner twice in a four-game set — lucky them. Opposing Price on Monday is fellow left-hander Felix Doubront (7-4, 3.78 ERA). The 25-year-old sophomore has been a revelation ever since the middle of May, yielding just 63 hits over 79 2/3 innings for a 2.71 ERA in his last 13 starts. Doubront still walks a few too many batters, but there’s no doubt he’s raised his game in his second full campaign. With the the Rays just half a game behind the Red Sox, first place in the AL East is also on the line. First pitch is scheduled for an early 6:10 p.m. ET, but we’ll have the starting lineups and, as Vin Scully would say, “all the stats and stories” leading up to the game.
