The Tampa Bay Rays are heading home.

Forced to play their home series with the New York Yankees at Citi Field in Queens this week following Hurricane Irma, the Rays will head back to Tampa Bay to play a weekend series against the Boston Red Sox at Tropicana Field, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

The Rays will finish their three-game set in New York on Wednesday and will fly home after the game.

The status of their weekend series with the Red Sox was up in the air following the hurricane, but Tropicana Field was determined not to have suffered major damage. There remains issues with power outages in Pinellas County, however.

The Rays last played at The Trop on Sept. 6.
