The Red Sox take on the Rays at Tropicana Field Wednesday evening.
The Sox have battled their way back to tie for the AL East lead with the Jays by winning nine of their last 11 games.
The Rays have been playing winning baseball themselves, they’ve won six of their last eight games.
Rick Porcello takes the mound for the Red Sox, he’s 17-3 with a 3.22 ERA and 1.04 WHIP. Matt Andriese is on the rubber for the Rays, he’s 6-5 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.12 WHIP.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox are on fire and making a real solid run at the AL East playoff spot.
They’ve got the best offense in the league without a doubt and they’ve been there all season.
They’ve scored 24 runs in their last four games which is half a run more per game than their 5.5 runs per game season average.
Over his last five starts, he’s lasted eight innings or more three times and has pitched at least seven innings in each outing.
He’s given up a stingy 10 runs in those five outings, so look for him to shut the Rays down. The last time they met he gave up just one over seven innings back on July 9th.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays are mysteriously on fire but I guess any team, when it comes to baseball, can catch fire.
They’ve scored 18 runs over their last three games and have scored double digits twice in their last eight games.
I wouldn’t expect this offensive surge to last but right now it looks like it’ll be around for at least a little bit longer.
He’s not a typical starter so since transitioning he hasn’t fared well.
Look for him to get punished by the Red Sox.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Red Sox ML
The Red Sox I think will punish Andriese but the Rays will struggle against Porcello.
The Rays are hot so they’ll probably get three but the Red Sox I think I’ll go for at least five.
