Rays look to get on track vs. rival Yankees

Going into the originally scheduled 162-game season, the Tampa Bay Rays were viewed as a potent challenger to the New York Yankees for American League East supremacy. When the 60-game season was announced, the Rays were still considered a formidable challenger to the Yankees.

So far, the Rays are not living up to those expectations, however. But now they get a chance to start reversing their slow start Friday night when they host the Yankees in the opener of a four-game series.

Last season, the Rays won 96 games to finish seven games behind the Yankees -- but made the playoffs and sparked hopes for a third straight 90-win season. At 5-7, they are currently four games behind the Yankees and, thanks to the shortened schedule, holding less time to get rolling.
