Boston Red Sox
Chris Sale struck out a dozen in seven innings without walking a batter but he gave up two big home runs and lost for the fourth time this season.
Sale had a 1-0 lead after three innings but the Rays got him once in the fourth, another time in the fifth and twice in the sixth. When the scoring was all done, Tampa had a 4-1 lead after six and went on to win by that same score.
Xander Bogaerts was hit by a pitch on the right wrist in the first inning and couldn’t continue. He is day-to-day as of now but Boston will likely exercise caution with the break looming.
Drew Pomeranz starts for the Sox on Friday night. He is 8-4 with a 3.64 ERA and continues just tossing “1s” and “2s.”
He has given up more than two runs just once in his last 10 starts.
Tampa Bay Rays
Jacob Faria remained perfect in his young career, moving to 4-0 with six quality innings on Thursday.
Faria silenced a mostly pro-Red Sox crowd in St. Pete, allowing just four hits and one run in six innings. He did pitch around four walks.
Peter Bourjos and Wilson Ramos each homered for the Rays. Tampa Bay struck out 13 times in eight innings, extending its league lead.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Tampa Bay (+126)
This matchup is pretty even on paper but I give the Rays a slight advantage at home with an approach that could work well against DrewPom.
