After splitting the games in Dallas, the Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers head back to Tropicana Field for two games that should help decide the outcome of this series. Game 3 is tonight and first pitch is scheduled for 5:07. The game can be seen on TBS.
The pitching matchup should be a good one. The Rangers will send Colby Lewis to the mound. Lewis finished the year with a 14-10 record and an ERA of 4.40 and 169 strikeouts. The Rays will send David Price to the mound, and you have to assume that he is still pretty upset about how his last start went against the Yankees in the regular season finale. This has been an offensive series thus far, but it would behoove the Rays if they could get a strong performance out of arguably their best pitcher, particularly after losing the game that James Shields pitched on Saturday.
