This AL matchup includes 2 teams that are on two different sides of the standings.
The Red Sox have cooled off after a fast start, but they still stand near the top of the AL East.
The Tampa Bay Rays have been pretty much cool for this season, and they stand near the bottom of the AL East.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox lineup has been playing very well this entire year, and they are who is keeping this Red Sox team in this season.
They are led by Xander Bogaerts who is hitting .343 with 30 extra base hits and has knocked in 50 runs this season.
David Ortiz is off to a MVP caliber year. Big Papi is hitting .335 with 18 home runs and 62 runs batted in.
The veteran second baseman Dustin Pedroia is hitting .305 on the year with 20 doubles and 30 RBIs. The Sox lineup looks to stay hot in Tampa.
The Red Sox rotation has been struggling lately but they have David Price on the mound Wednesday. Price is currently 8-4 on the year with a 4.68 E.R.A and 110 strikeouts.
He did not pitch well in his last start against the Texas Rangers. He only made it 2.1 innings in the game, where he gave up 6 earned runs on 12 hits.
Price did not walk a batter, and he struck out 1. Look for Price to bounce back in this one.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay lineup has been up and down overall. Evan Longoria is leading the way with a .275 average.
Longoria has also hit 18 dingers and has knocked in 43 runs for the season. Brad Miller is off to a solid start.
Miller is hitting .248 on the year with 25 extra base hits and 25 RBIs. Corey Dickerson is only hitting .209 on the year, but he has hit 13 home runs and has 34 runs batted in here in late June.
Look for the Rays lineup to amp up against a good pitcher in Price.
The Rays have Matt Moore on the mound Wednesday. He is currently 3-5 on the year with a 5.04 E.R.A and 84 strikeouts.
Moore last had action against the Baltimore Orioles where he received the loss. Moore worked in 6.2 innings of work where he gave up 5 earned runs on 7 hits.
Moore struck out 6 batters and walked 1. Moore looks to have a good pitching duel against one of the AL’s best.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The Rays have a good shot in this game because of home field, but I’m taking the Red Sox in this one.
I don’t think that Price will have back-to-back bad starts especially with the differences in lineups that he will be facing, look for him to bounce back here.
I don’t think Matt Moore will be able to do much against this Sox lineup, and I believe they will chip away throughout the game.
