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).

Leinart played poorly in the pre-season and vet Kurt Warner looked great. Warner has had a fantastic season. But what if Warner goes down when the Cards meet the Atlanta Falcons? It’s possible. Warner is old and prone to injury and the Atlanta “D” is extremely brutal. Leinart certainly knows the scheme but can he pull it off? I say “no.”
