A full quarter of the Sox’ remaining games are against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
Tim Wakefield is 8-0 at Tropicana Field.
The D-Rays have lost five straight to the Yankees and Orioles, seven of their last 10 and 15 of 20. The Red Sox have won six of seven.
The Red Sox have just taken three of four from Cleveland in a potential playoff preview and re-extended their AL East lead to a comfortable 7.5 games.
Things are looking up. Let’s hope they stay that way.
