Tampa Bay Rays defeat Boston Red Sox, 6-4

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Forgive the Red Sox if they were tempted to board their charter last night still wearing their uniforms, while the cowbells still rang in their ears and the fluorescent lights still stung their eyes.

Forgive them if they ran from this place screaming. Forgive them for doing anything to leave behind Tropicana Field as fast as they could.

The Red Sox planned on arriving in New York today at about 4 a.m., but they may have never welcomed a trip there...
