Tonight’s lineups

No Carlos Pena for the Rays, and still no Kevin Youkilis for the Sox. J.D. Drew steps back in for Rocco Baldelli and Nick Green takes Julio Lugo’s spot in the batting order. Daniel Bard and his powerful fastball are active for tonight after being brought up from Pawtucket, where he managed a 1.13 ERA in 11 outings. A roster spot was cleared for Bard when the team designated left-handed reliever Javier Lopez for assignment.
