Preview: Rays return home to host Reds in interleague play

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Rays look to continue their success with the long ball when they welcome the Cincinnati Reds to Tropicana Field for a rare three-game interleague series between the two teams starting Monday.

The Reds and Rays have only met 12 times total with the Reds holding a 9-3 advantage in those games.

Tampa Bay (37-35) continues to stay a couple of games above .500 after going 3-3 on a six-game road trip to Toronto and Detroit but the Rays have won two in a row and showed a lot of power against the Tigers with five home runs in a 9-1 win Sunday.
