A dramatic game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox on Monday night at Fenway Park had it all: High emotions, memorable plays and a controversial call at home plate in the eighth inning that went Tampa Bay's way. The Rays won, 2-1, taking a half-game lead in the American League East in the process. The October-baseball-in-July feelings spilled over onto Twitter, as the Rays' official account marked the occasion with a slight jab at its division rival. Dear @RedSox scoreboard operator - your standings are wrong. Yours truly, @RaysBaseball. Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) July 30, 2013 In Beantown, however, that sentiment went over as well as pinstripes near Peskys Pole. Shortly after the Rays tweet, the Red Sox responded with a jab of their own, with an eye toward a return to Tropicana Field late in the season. Don't worry @raysbaseball we look forward to seeing you in Tampa in September for our home games at the Trop. Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) July 30, 2013 The Rays and Red Sox close their season series with three games from Sept. 10-12 in St. Petersburg, Fla. Emotions are heating up between the two contenders, both on the field and online. Stay tuned. You can follow Andrew Astleford on Twitter @aastleford or email him at aastleford@gmail.com.
