Boston Red Sox: There's a batting title on the line and a Wildcard slot to be won, so Bill Mueller will not be resting in spite of a back spasms that forced him out of last night's victory over the Devil Rays. Jeff Horrigan of the Boston Herald reports that Mueller insists his name will be on the lineup card tonight at Jacobs Field -- provided the periphery of Hurricane Isabel doesn't wash out the contest. Johnny Damon, injured himself, is actually hoping just such a thing occurs. ``I'm praying for rain (today) so I can get back in there without missing any more games,'' Damon told Horrigan.
