A look at what’s happening around the majors today:BREAK OUT THE BROOMSThe surprising Rays go for their eighth straight victory when they try to become the first team to sweep Boston in a series this season. Tampa Bay is a season-high eight games over .500 at 69-61 and has allowed three or fewer runs in seven consecutive games. All-Star lefty Blake Snell (15-5 , 2.07 ERA) pitches against former teammate Nathan Eovaldi (5-5) in the finale of the three-game set. “He really helped me with my work ethic and led by example,” said Snell, who is 2-0 with a 0.95 ERA in three starts against Boston this year. “He’s very special.”Eovaldi is 2-1 with a 2.89 ERA in five starts for the major league-leading Red Sox since being acquired from the Rays on July 25. Boston (90-41) has lost five of seven. “We’ve been good on getaway days and day games,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “It would be a good day to put everything together, finish strong and turn the page in this stadium.”HOMER HAPPYKendrys Morales has homered in six consecutive games, tying Jose Cruz Jr. (2001) for the Blue Jays record, heading into their series finale against Philadelphia. Morales, with seven home runs during his streak Chris Owings Jersey , matched St. Louis first baseman Matt Carpenter for the longest run in the majors this season. The big league record of eight games in a row with a homer is shared by Dale Long, Don Mattingly and Ken Griffey Jr. The slumping Phillies have lost 17 of their past 21 meetings with Toronto, including six straight north of the border.NEW YORK BAGELSThe last time the Nationals faced Mets left-hander Steven Matz, they hammered him for seven runs in the first inning on the way to a 25-4 romp. Washington could have used some of those runs the last three games — all shutout losses. The Nationals will try to end their record skid of offensive futility at Citi Field. They haven’t scored since Ryan Zimmerman’s walk-off homer Wednesday night. Not since they were the Montreal Expos and were shut out in three straight by the Florida Marlins in 2004 — all three games were played in Puerto Rico — had the franchise been held down like this. The Expos moved to Washington the next season.THEN AND NOWInducted into the Hall of Fame last month, longtime Detroit shortstop Alan Trammell will have his No. 3 retired by the Tigers in a pregame ceremony. After that, touted rookie Michael Kopech takes the mound to make his second major league start for the Chicago White Sox.TRACK RECORDIn four games since he joined the Chicago Cubs in a trade with the Nationals, Daniel Murphy is 7 for 19 (.368) with two homers and five RBIs. He’ll try to go deep in a third straight game for the Cubs, who have 17 homers in their past 10 games. Success at Wrigley Field is nothing new for Murphy Archie Bradley Jersey , who is batting .407 in 31 career regular-season games there — all but three of them before he joined the Cubs. Chicago is hoping Murphy can recapture the form of his postseason run with the Mets in 2015, when he went 9 for 17 (.529) with four homers in a four-game NLCS sweep of the Cubs.END OF THE ROADGiants catcher Buster Posey will undergo season-ending hip surgery Monday in Colorado, ending what has been a painful and frustrating year for the six-time All-Star. The 31-year-old Posey has been playing in pain and is hitting .284 with only 41 RBIs and five home runs — his fewest since 2011, the year before he won the NL MVP award. … Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (bone spurs in both heels) will not play at all this season. Tulowitzki had surgery on both feet at the start of the regular season. The five-time All-Star hasn’t played since July 2017, when he seriously injured his right ankle in a collision at first base. Houston Astros pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. left Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers because of right elbow discomfort, the team announced.McCullers exited after four innings of shutout baseball, allowing just two hits while striking out five.An All-Star a season ago, McCullers was having another solid season before hitting a rough patch recently. Entering Saturday Curt Schilling Jersey , he is 0-3 while allowing 14 runs in 13.2 innings over his last three starts.The 24-year-old is 10-6 with a 3.93 ERA in 22 starts in 2018.McCullers is coming off a season in which he helped the Astros win their first-ever World Series championship. He posted a 2.61 ERA in 20.2 innings in five playoff appearances and was the starting pitcher of Game 7 of the 2018 World Series, throwing 2.1 innings of shutout baseball in a 5-1 victory at Dodger Stadium.The right-hander spent all of August on the disabled list while dealing with a back injury.Houston is in a position to be cautious with McCullers. The Astros currently hold a 4.5-game lead over the Oakland Athletics in the American League West and are 6.5 games clear in the wild-card race. While they have by no means run away with a playoff spot, they do have some cushion.Fortunately for Houston, starting pitching is an area of strength. The team's rotation ranks first in all MLB by a wide margin with a 3.02 ERA. That's because it contains former Cy Young award winners Justin Verlander (also a former AL MVP) and Dallas Keuchel as well as two-time All-Star Gerrit Cole. Oh, it also features the winning pitcher of Game 7 of last year's World Series, Charlie Morton.
