NY totaled five hits and walked six times with Todd Frazier smashing a three run bomb during a five run 4th.

Heading into the final month of the season, the Sox were in first in the AL East with a half-game lead over the Yankees and a nine-game lead over the Rays. Lucas Duda, who spent the first seven-plus years of his career with the Mets and scored his new team's only run Monday, was placed in his old locker spot at the back of the room. But the worst has seemingly been averted in Tampa, where Irma arrived as a weakened Category 1 hurricane as opposed to the monstrous Category 5 that had been predicted.

Moments before the first pitch, Mets public address announcer Alex Anthony noted the recent devastation created by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. No word yet from Major League Baseball if Boston and Tampa Bay will play at Tropicana Field on Friday night as scheduled - the Rays expect to host the three-game set, but it could be reconfigured to give them an extra day off to handle personal matters.

They will start the year in Toronto on March 29 and then play host to the Rays on April 2 for the opener in The Bronx.

Anthony then asked for a moment of silence in honor of the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Citi Field won't be an entirely unfamiliar venue to the players this week.

"Everything right now points to us going there", Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday.

One day later, they were in second by a half game, and the situation deteriorated from there.

The left-handed slugger will take a seat versus Yankees southpaw CC Sabathia.

Adeiny Hechavarria gets the honor for snapping the 1-1 tie and give the Rays the win. The availability of hotel rooms in NY - and the fact that only one team would need them - made Citi Field the choice.

Sanchez raced home when Matt Holliday's two-out grounder skipped under the glove of Trevor Plouffe for a two-base error.

For three days this week, they would have to try at a park that felt comfortable, but was home in name only.

"I don't know if there is a neutral site when you're playing the Yankees", said Longoria, who smiled when reminded that Yankees fans often invade Tropicana Field, too. He worked 3-2/3 innings, allowing the five runs on three hits and three walks, striking out five while throwing 94 pitches.

Aaron Judge struck out three times and walked once. "It was kind of what we expected, to be quite honest", said Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who took the loss Monday.

Opening a stretch that has 17 of their final 20 games in NY, the Yankees closed within three games of Boston in the AL East and opened a four-game lead over Minnesota for the top AL wild card. NY trails the first-place Boston Red Sox by three games in the AL East.
