Boston Red Sox
It’s been a long and painful hangover for Boston, now closer to three weeks into the regular season than two. The Red Sox were leading in New York on Wednesday before Brett Gardner’s grand slam in the seventh inning. Boston lost both games in the Bronx and will occupy last-place when it arrived in Tampa Bay sometime on Thursday, which is a day off.
It should be Eduardo Rodriguez in this one. He earned one of the two wins Boston starters have at this point in the season the last time he took the mound, going into the seventh and allowing just three hits and two runs, striking out eight.
Brock Holt could return from the Injured List for this game. If you haven’t heard the story, his young son scratched him in a playful way and he’s been dealing with a cornea issue ever since. It sure feels like it’s going to take more than just Holt, or any one player, to get this thing going again anytime soon for the Sox.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay, meanwhile, is living easy. It beat Baltimore again on Wednesday night and has a chance to sweep the Orioles on Thursday. Hunter Wood will be the opener.
Ryne Stanek opened Wednesday and Yonny Chirinos went five strong, bouncing back after a tough last outing. Kevin Cash hasn’t named a starter yet for this game but we should be back to Blake Snell by now.
Snell last threw in Toronto on Saturday and he befuddled the Jays for six innings, giving up one hit, waking one, and striking out nine. Tampa got him a run in the top of the sixth in what was a scoreless game and he left with a lead after throwing just 82 pitches.
The Rays went on to lose that game with Chaz Roe in the seventh. It was their last loss, at least as of Thursday morning.
