American League East Division rivals Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox go head-to-head on Friday.

The Tampa Bay Rays are looking to slow down the red-hot Boston Red Sox on Friday night at Fenway Park at the start of their three-game series.

Boston is the winner of 10 out of their last 13 games, allowing the team to reach .500 after an abysmal start to the season. Tampa and Boston both have power that can rival the other's. Alex Cobb will be tasked with keeping Red Sox bats tamed on Friday, while Jon Lester will battle him in the pitcher's duel.

The Rays are the American League East Division second place team, but the Red Sox have won four of six against the them, taking three of four at home last month.

Here is a look at the schedule for game 1:

Date/Time: Friday, May 25, 7:10 p.m. CT

TV: SUN, NESN

Online streaming: MLB.TV
