Left-hander Drew Smyly will try to extend his unbeaten streak to 12 starts when the Tampa Bay Rays go on the road to open a four-game series against the Chicago White Sox on Monday night.

Individual achievements are the most relevant storylines remaining as the Rays (65-90) and White Sox (74-81) prepare for a long offseason with no hope of reaching the playoffs.

David Ortiz plays his final game at Tropicana Field on Sunday as the Boston Red Sox try for their 11th straight victory in the series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays. Boston clinched a postseason berth with Saturday night's victory, but the math was complicated enough that the Red Sox, who haven't won 10 straight in September since 1949, didn't celebrate anything more than a win in the clubhouse.

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 15:00:36 PDT

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 21:37:59 PDT

The Boston Red Sox have won nine straight, their longest win streak in more than five years, and as they look to extend that stretch Saturday against the Tampa Bay Rays, their bullpen has been an underappreciated part of their success. Friday was an excellent example, as closer Craig Kimbrel and reliver Koji Uehara got the night off for rest and the bullpen still came through with four scoreless innings to make a two-run home run in the first hold up for a 2-1 victory. "Can't say enough of the run that entire group has been on," manager John Farrell said.
