If there’s one division foe in the AL East that gets fans of the Tampa Bay Rays fired up it’s got to be the Boston Red Sox. The past decade has been full of bad blood between the teams and provided plenty of footnotes worth reviewing throughout the rivalry.
On Friday they met again at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, where David Price continued his dominance this season with 10 strikeouts in a 6-4 win. Ben Zobrist finished 4-for-4 at the plate with an RBI in the seventh and Evan Longoria drove in three runs on a crucial double that same inning to put the Rays in front for good.
The series will continue throughout the weekend. Andrew Astleford of Fox Sports Florida joined me Saturday morning on AM 740 The Game to talk about the turnaround.
