Sean M. Haffey/Getty ImagesThe Boston Red Sox are World Series champions once again , and the team will get a chance to celebrate with the fans before too long.The team announced Monday morning that the parade will be held on Wednesday at 11 a.m. ET, per Kevin Slane of As for television coverage, MLB Network will broadcastthe parade per usual, and local news stations in Boston are also expected to have coverage of the event.Per the city's press conference Monday, the parade route will begin on Boylston Street near Fenway Park until Boston Common, before taking a left on Tremont Street. From there, it will head to Cambridge Street and end on Staniford Street.And yes Lance McCullers Jersey , there will once again be the duck boats.Although the last few years saw teams winning their first World Series titles in franchise history or at least first in many years, the Red Sox are well-prepared for a parade after winning their fourth championship in 15 years.The city has also seen more success outside of just baseball:Bleacher Report BleacherReportBest sports city? 4lTGJkYEb9After Red Sox championships in 2004, 2007 and 2013, the city used its amphibious duck boat tours to display the players on both the roads and in the water.The 2013 parade went from Fenway Park into the Charles River, covering a total of 3.8 miles:Only In Boston OnlyInBOSThe Boston Red Sox parade route starting at 10am #WorldSeriesChamps Marty Walsh's congratulatory tweet Sunday night hinted at more duck boats, which was confirmed Monday:Mayor Marty Walsh marty_walshFire up the Duck Boats for the #WorldSeries Champions -- congratulations RedSox, we can鈥檛 wait to welcome you home! #DoDamage #DamageDone dqUGL0ufANThe 2018 team was dominant throughout the year with a major league-best 108 wins before going 11-3 in the postseason on its way to a title. While title fatigue might set in with the fans , there will likely still be a packed city during the parade to celebrate this outstanding squad. 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 Alex Bregman Jersey , heading into their series finale against Philadelphia. Morales, with seven home runs during his streak, 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 Carlos Beltran Jersey , 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, 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.
