Rays Vs. Red Sox Game 2 Preview: Bad Blood Brewing Between Tampa And Boston

Teh Tampa Bay Rays may have taken game one of their series with the Boston Red Sox, but the story of Friday night wasn't the Rays beating the Red Sox by a final score of 7-4, it was the two dugouts clearing and exchanging a heated war of words with one another.

With two outs in the ninth inning, Red Sox relief pitcher, Franklin Morales, nailed the Rays' Luke Scott in the right leg to which Scott took exception and jawed at Morales while approaching the pitchers mound.

Boston's catcher, Jarrod Saltalamacchia tried to iintervene and as a result, both benches and bullpens emptied. No punches were thrown but there was some pushing and shoving and it was easy to tell that these two teams don't like each other.

Game two of the series kicks off at 7:05 P.M. EST from Fenway Park.
