Rays Vs. Red Sox: Boston Will Be Without Kevin Youkilis On Monday

The Tampa Bay Rays haven't enjoyed their trip up to Boston very much so far, losing the first three games of the series in pretty decisive fashion. Maybe a shake up in the starting time for this game, a very unusual 11 am, will be just the kick they need to avoid a sweep on Monday morning. here is the lineup the Rays will trot out on Monday morning.

1. Desmond Jennings, CF
2. Carlos Pena, 1B
3. Evan Longoria, 3B
4. Luke Scott, DH
5. Ben Zobrist, RF
6. Matt Joyce, LF
7. Jeff Keppinger, 2B
8. Jose Molina, C
9. Sean Rodriguez, SS
SP - James Shields, RHP

And here is the lineup that the Red Sox will be working with on Monday. The interesting note is that Kevin Youkilis will not be on the field after the interesting comments from manager Bobby Valentine.

1. Mike Aviles, SS
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
4. David Ortiz, DH
5. Cody Ross, CF
6. Ryan Sweeney, RF
