    Big game. Big series.

    Huge win.

    Rays vs. Red Sox. Even normally sleepy Tropicana Field had a bit of buzz to it Friday night. Okay, so it wasn't Fenway Park, and it didn't quite feel like October, but it did feel like a game that mattered.

    It’s a team high-five after the Rays win their eighth straight and go to 20-5 for the past month.
