Covers Preview - Alex Cobb has taken over the role of ace for the Tampa Bay Rays since the trade of former American League Cy Young Award winner David Price. Cobb goes for his career-high eighth straight victory and attempts to extend his unbeaten streak to 12 games when the Rays host the Boston Red Sox on Sunday in the third contest of their four-game series. Cobb has given up only six runs over his last seven starts and hopes to give Tampa Bay another gem after Jake Odorizzi’s seven one-hit innings Saturday.
