Rays-Red Sox Preview

(AP) -- A chance to face the beleaguered Boston Red Sox staff appeared to give the Tampa Bay Rays just what they needed to break out of their funk at the plate.

They'll try to keep that momentum going while giving Drew Smyly enough support to earn his first win of the season Tuesday night in a matchup with former teammate Rick Porcello, who likely won't have Hanley Ramirez available to help him.

Tampa Bay (14-12) was batting .178 and had scored 10 runs in its six games before a 5-1 win at Fenway Park on Monday night. David DeJesus, 0 for 16 in his prior five contests, had two of the Rays' 11 hits and Logan Forsythe registered two for the fifth time in six contests.
