After taking two of three games in their weekend series with the Boston Red Sox, the Tampa Bay Rays will now shift their focus to take on team with "sox" of a different color in the Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox are coming off a weekend sweep of the AL Central leading Cleveland Indians but still sit just a halg game back of the Indians for the lead in the division and after sweeping Boston, the Rays find themselves tied with the Baltimore Orioles for the AL East lead.

The Rays and White Sox series will be the first meeting these two teams this season. Tampa will be looking to close out the month of May just as strong as they started it while Chicago will be looking to continue their current five game winning streak and go into the month of June with some momentum.
