Rays-Red Sox Preview

(AP) -- The Tampa Bay Rays might have looked at a series against one of the AL's worst teams as a way to get their playoff drive on track.

The Rays instead are just hoping to avoid a three-game sweep Sunday to the Boston Red Sox, who just learned that a significant change to their organization is coming soon.

Tampa Bay has all but faded from the AL East race since holding a half-game lead June 27 but still remain in striking distance for a wild-card spot, albeit facing plenty of competition. The Rays (51-54) haven't helped their cause by losing eight of 12 overall and 13 of 16 on the road.
