Rays Vs. Mets Lineups: Ben Zobrist Out Again For Tampa

The Rays continue interleague play at Tropicana Field on Wednesday night against the Mets. Pitchers continue to take batting practice in preparation for their upcoming trip to Washington and Philadelphia. But they'll get the benefit of the DH for the next five games. Hideki Matsui will hit fifth as the DH on Wednesday against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Ben Zobrist will miss his second straight game.

The Rays were hammered on Tuesday night when New York put together a six-run rally in the seventh inning. David Price will take the hill in Game 2 and try to even the series.
