Rays will try to slow down Red Sox's power

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays get back to having a traditional starting pitcher on the mound, but they'll do so Tuesday night against the best hitting lineup in the majors as the Boston Red Sox come to town.

Boston (32-15) went into Monday night's games just percentage points behind the Yankees for the American League East lead, with the best team batting average (.270) and the most home runs (68) in all of baseball.

Red Sox sluggers Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez are tied for the major league lead with 15 home runs each, becoming the first pair of Boston players ever to both get to 15 home runs in the first 50 games of the season.
