Tampa Bay Rays
Chirinos got the no-decision against the Minnesota Twins in his last outing where he went 4.2 innings giving up two earned off of four hits while striking out six and walking two. He has given up 11 hits, eight runs, and two home runs in his last two starts after giving up zero runs in his first three starts.
After a stellar start, the rookie is starting to feel the grind of the MLB season. His numbers are good right now with a 7.66 K/9, a 2.55 BB/9, and a 0.73 HR/9, but it looks as though those numbers will begin to inflate. The only thing this rookie is lacking right now is experience, and that will eventually come.
Tampa Bay gotten a taste of playing winning baseball and they like it as they’ve won their last five contests. Their bats have been scorching hots in that span as they are slashing .344/.403/.570 to go along with 23 extra-base hits and 40 RBI.
Boston Red Sox
Price took his second loss of the season in his last outing against the Oakland Athletics. He went 7.2 innings giving up four earned off of nine hits while striking out six and walking one. It was actually a solid start for Price where his only significant lapse was giving up a three-run homer to Khris Davis. He only needed 96 pitches in this outing.
With the velocity down in his fastball, he’s been trying to find ways to increase his low 7.48 K/9 by increasing cutter and decreasing his curveball. He hasn’t found the right ingredients yet as he has yet to eclipse six strikeouts in a single outing. His 2.93 ERA is still looking pretty, but once his .263 BABIP begins to regress, look for that number to inflate.
Boston has managed to play average baseball despite their lineups struggles going 3-3 in the last week. Their bats are slashing .200/.261/.315 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 20 RBI during that span.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rays +194 and Rays +1.5
Both teams will be very familiar with both these pitches as they’ve faced them a couple times already this year. Both pitchers are dealing with their own personal woes, so I look towards the way these lineups have been hitting and Tampa Bay gets the big edge. Tampa Bay’s bats should be the difference in this one.
