ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon is sticking with his right-handed batting order against Texas Rangers left-handed ace Cliff Lee for tonight's Game 5. With one exception: Lefty Dan Johnson stays in the lineup instead of switch-hitting Willy Aybar.

Here's the Rays lineup:

SS Jason Bartlett
RF Ben Zobrist (S)
LF Carl Crawford (L)
3B Evan Longoria
1B Carlos Pena (L)
CF B.J. Upton
DH Dan Johnson (L)
C Kelly Shoppach
2B Sean Rodriguez
P David Price

The lineup was tweaked slightly in terms of the order Lee faces. Zobrist hit seventh in Game 1. Johnson did pinch hit, but he faced Darren Oliver and not Lee.
