Rays' Archer aims for success versus Red Sox

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A win or a quality start would be nice for Tampa Bay Rays starter Chris Archer against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, but just getting through the night without an injury would be a welcome sight.

The Rays (22-24) take on the Red Sox (33-15) to continue their three-game series, but do so with another injury rendering them even thinner in their starting rotation after Jake Faria left Tuesday's game with a strained left oblique in the third inning.

"He's going to miss some time," said Rays manager Kevin Cash, already getting by with bullpen days and spot starters for a decent part of his current rotation.
