Covers Preview - The Tampa Bay Rays continue increase optimism that they can contend for a playoff spot after spending most of June with the worst record in baseball. The Rays try to extend their season-high winning streak to seven and finish a perfect road trip when they visit the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday in the finale of a two-game interleague set. Tampa Bay knocked All-Star Adam Wainwright out of the game in the fifth inning of the 7-2 win Tuesday and is averaging six runs during its win streak.
