Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox had the first lead late in the first game of the series Friday night at Tropicana Field but couldn’t hold it in an extra-inning, 5–4 loss.
Rick Porcello and Charlie Morton matched zeroes through six innings before Mitch Moreland went deep to center on an 0-2 pitch to make it 2–0 Boston in the seventh.
Darwinzon Hernandez relieved Porcello to begin the seventh and gave up two walks and a hit. All three runners came around to score and the Rays had a lead going into the eighth.
They extended it in the eighth but Emilio Pagan blew the save when Moreland hit another two-run home run.
The Sox’ bullpen just couldn’t hang. The Rays won it in the eleventh on Willy Adames’ third hit of the night, a single through the left side that scored the pinch-runner Johnny Davis.
Tampa Bay Rays
The win kept the Rays tied with Cleveland in the Wild Card. Tampa turns to Tyler Glasnow on Saturday before giving the ball to Ryan Yarbrough on Sunday.
Yarbs lost for the first time since June 13 in his last start against the Angels. He’s only started against Boston once this season and it was a beauty: 7.2 innings, seven strikeouts, no walks, and four hits. He also won an appearance in long-relief against Boston on July 31.
The Red Sox showed the sort of fight that a team that wants to win shows on Friday. Mookie Betts returned to the lineup but Andrew Benintendi left with a thumb issue. JD Martinez didn’t return. Boston’s lineup is still dangerous but this is a nice opportunity for Yarbrough to pitch well.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: under in the first five.
I like the spot for Nathan Eovaldi but he hasn’t been going deep into starts at all. Tampa should win it late but my lean would still be Boston because I believe it’s another bullpen game to be decided late.
What I’m really looking to play is an under in the first five innings, if I get get anything 4.5 or better.
