Tune In to Rays-Red Sox at 5:30 p.m. Monday Night on NESN

The Red Sox won their first series of the season this past weekend, taking two of three from the Yankees at Fenway. Now, it's time to welcome another bitter AL East rival to Boston for the first time in 2011.

The Rays are coming to town, and as rough as the start to the 2011 campaign has been for the Sox, it's been far worse for Joe Maddon's club. They've lost their best player, Evan Longoria, to the disabled list, been shocked by Manny Ramirez's surprise retirement and have gone just 1-8 thus far.

Tune in to Rays-Red Sox Monday evening on NESN. Coverage begins at 5:30 p.m. with Red Sox Monster Monday. Also, follow along on NESN.com with Tony Lee's live blog.
