The Red Sox are looking to finish strong against Tampa and this will be their last game of the season against them.
They still have one more road series at New York next week before they welcome the Jays for the final series of the season. If they keep playing the way they have it might not be that meaningful for them.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox are very close to clinching the division, they are currently 5.5 games ahead of Toronto. RF Mookie Betts is hitting amazingly with his .321 batting average, and DH David Ortiz is making his last season a memorable record breaking one.
The Red Sox lead MLB in batting average, OPS, and runs heading into Saturday. It is hard to have an offense much better than that.
On the mound for the Red Sox will be sending lefty Eduardo Rodriguez. His ERA is 4.84, and he didn’t do well in the first half of the season but has been part of Boston’s second half surge.
He’s kind of one of those guys who goes up and down, with really good starts and really bad starts. He had a good last start against Baltimore, gaining a win.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays are looking to have some sort of impact in the final week of the season. Earlier in the month they put the screws to Toronto but that is nothing new. Boston is like a runaway freight train now so stopping them is going to be tough.
You probably won’t believe your eyes but Tampa is 4th in home runs this season. Evan Longoria is leading the way with 36, a career high.
Chris Archer racks up the Ks but Jake Odorizzi has been their best starter this season.
He faced Boston in back to back starts at the end of August and the Rays won both times as he yielded only 4ER over 13 innings. The Red Sox can mash but he kept them in the yard, just one homer allowed. He is definitely good enough to slow their attack.
Look for the Rays to give Odorizzi every chance to stay in this game long enough to get the win and get to double digits for the season. The bullpen has been a bit spotty.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
I think this one will come off around pick’em when the lines come out. Boston is the better team but they can’t keep up their hot play through the rest of the season…can they.
Tampa might even be the underdog which makes them intriguing.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Tampa ML
Odorizzi has an ERA that is a half run better at home and seemingly no fear of the Red Sox so I think this is a good spot to get behind Tampa. They are not phoning it in.
I am looking for them to put a charge into a few against Rodriguez. That is their whole offense these days.
