Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay’s series in New York didn’t go nearly as well as it did for them at the Trop and the Rays come to Fenway a little wounded.
Good news is that Chris Archer gets the ball for his third start. He’s been really good in his first two, 14.2 innings combined and two runs allowed in each. It wasn’t exactly hard to foresee, but it looks like Archer’s bounce back year is matriculating.
I still really like the under most nights Tampa takes the field because of that outfield defense. Ironically their infield defense hurt us on Wednesday with our under play. The outfielders won’t have a chance to make quite as big of an impact with the closer confines at Fenway though.
Boston Red Sox
Rick Porcello has given up three in each of his first two starts, both quality starts but not Cy Young quality. Detroit got him for 11 base hits in his last outing against his former team.
He did strike out eight though and didn’t get much help from the defense behind him. He should be just fine against Tampa Bay
Boston’s offense has missed Ortiz nearly 10 games into 2017. Bradley Jr.’s absence also shortens the lineup just a tad, but a noticeable tad. This total just seems way too high, even if it does involve the Sox at Fenway.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: two great starters deliver.
Archer is pitching really well and Porcello gets to take on a weak lineup. I really like this one going under the total.
