Notes: Shields is 0-3 in five career starts against the Indians, the only AL team he has never beaten. ... Rays LF Carl Crawford (bruised right shoulder) and Pat Burrell (sore neck) were both available to pinch hit, but did not get into the game. Manager Joe Maddon said Burrell will have a cortisone shot on Friday and miss the following two games. Crawford said his shoulder was "a little sore, a little stiff," but the Rays are hopeful he'll be back in the lineup Friday. ... With Crawford out, Zobrist started in LF for Tampa Bay. SS Jason Bartlett, who normally bats eighth or ninth, moved up to Crawford's customary No. 2 hole.
