The Rays look to officially bury the Red Sox in the playoff race with the series finale at Fenway Park in front of an ESPN audience.

Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox

Tampa Bay’s impressive 14-5 victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday pushed their lead in the Wild Card race to 7 1/2 games.  Also by winning, the Rays snapped a three-game losing streak while picking up a game on the Yankees, moving them within 1 1/2 games of the American League East leaders.  “Winning beats losing,” said manager Joe Maddon.  The offense was led by outfielder Carl Crawford’s career-high three doubles, as he compiled his Major League-leading eighth four-hit game of the season.  It’s important to note that with yesterday’s win, the club has not tied last year’s win total and the team is 265-197 since the start of the 2008 season.  Tampa Bay is 35-23 against division opponents (+610) and the total is 31-26 O/U in those contests.  The team will be playing its 15th game as a road underdog of +100 to +125, posting a 6-8 record in the previous 14 instances (-140).

The Phillies hope to bounce back on a national stage after allowing double-digit runs for the first time last night.

Philadelphia Phillies at Boston Red Sox

Philadelphia dropped the series opener, 12-2, to the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Friday night.  Phillies SP Jamie Moyer allowed nine runs on nine hits in lasting just a single inning, suffering the worst start of his career.  “We can’t put our game together,” manager Charlie Manuel said.  “When we get pitching, we just don’t hit.  We haven’t been hitting at all and our starting pitching has been very good until tonight.”  The team is visiting Fenway Park for the first time since the 2006 season, as they are 6-12 (.333) here all-time.  The team is now 1-3 on the season during interleague play, with all four games coming against today’s opponent.  Philadelphia is a terrible 17-31 against the American League the past three years (-1,790), failing to produce a winning mark against the Junior Circuit since 2007.
