The Tampa Bay Rays’ absence from Tropicana Field will be a brief one.
Hurricane Irma barreled its way through Florida over the weekend, forcing the Rays to play their early-week home series against the New York Yankees at Citi Field in New York. However, the team confirmed Wednesday it’ll return to St. Petersburg for its series against the Boston Red Sox beginning Friday. The three-game set will be the last time the American League East rivals face each other this season.
The Red Sox own a 9-7 record over the Rays for their season series, but the two clubs are knotted at three games apiece at the Trop.
