MLB: Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Just a week after being swept at the hands of the hated Boston Red Sox, the Tampa Bay Rays will get another shot to attempt to drive a stake through the hearts of the defending champs. Their attempt to do so last week looked a bit like this:

In the meantime, the Rays took two out of three from the Royals, while the Sox split with the Tigers, leaving the Rays 5.5 games up on the Red Sox — once again a tantalizing number if they could win the series, and a terrifying number should they be swept again.

The Rays will turn to Charlie Morton (2-0, 3.38/3.22/3.73 ERA/FIP/xFIP) on Friday, Tyler Glasnow (4-0, 1.53/2.64/3.29) on Saturday, and then use the Opener Sunday. For the Sox, they stay have a fat TBD for Friday, with David Price (1-1, 3.75/2.86/3.28) Saturday, and Chris Sale (0-4, 7.43/5.59/4.41) Sunday.

Once again, the Rays have a chance to put a little distance between them and their division rivals, and once again they have the chance of being sent into a panic by Sunday afternoon.
