BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Red Sox rallied to split their four-game set with the Indians yesterday and, now, they have 90 wins. No other team in baseball has reached 80.

Blake Swihart--pretty cool, huh?

"It's impressive," Swihart said. "Hopefully we can be the first to 100, too. Just keep going, just keep having fun. This team has a lot of fun playing together and just being around each other. It's great."

To get to 100, you need 91. Boston will try for that 'W' in Tampa tonight with the first of three at 7:10. Rays are hot with five straight wins, including a four-game sweep of the Royals to complete their first season-sweep of an A-L opponent in franchise history.

Hector Velazquez will start for the Sox opposite Diego Castillo. He's the Rays' "opener," but former Red Sox prospect Jalen Beeks is expected to pitch the body of the game.

Castillo went an inning-and-two-thirds as the "opener" last Sunday before Beeks tossed four shutout frames in relief versus his old team.

Velazquez is 1-1 with a 2.12 ERA in 17 innings against Tampa this year. The righty has a 3.10 ERA in five starts.

Sox are 11-and-5 this season in the series.
