The AL East gets set for battle as the Tampa Bay Rays head into Fenway Park to take on the Boston Red Sox.
The Rays have won back to back games while the Red Sox fell in the final 2 games against the Jays.
Boston Red Sox
Boston’s pitching struggles have started to open a few eyes on this team. Once again it was their bullpen that let them down as they coughed up a 1-0 lead in the 8th inning on Patriot Day to the Toronto Blue Jays. The Sox cut the deficit to 4-3 and sent David Ortiz to the plate as the tying run. Ortiz went down looking, push the Boston losing skid to 2.
The Red Sox haven’t had many problems offensively however. They have averaged nearly 5 runs per game and it’s been Hanley Ramirez who has been absolutely scorching this season.
Pitching wise, the Red Sox will send out RH Joe Kelly. He brings in a 1-0 record, but has an ERA that sits over 10. Kelly allowed 7 runs in 3 innings in his first start, but the offense got him off the hook. Location is his biggest key. He doesn’t have stuff that can overpower anyone, leaving him to use his command as his biggest threat.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay finally saw some offense over the weekend. A team that had struggled to find runs, got a 7 spot on Saturday and manufactured 3 runs on Sunday to put together back to back wins. The Rays had more than 3 runs in just 3 of their first 12 games.
Tampa has really gotten the production from RF Brandon Guyer. Over the past two wins, Guyer has gone 5 for 6 with two RBIs.
Tampa Bay will send out LH Drew Smyly to the hill. He’s had a rough go at it thus far sitting with an 0-2 record with an ERA at 4.61. The southpaw allowed 3 home runs in his first start, but did follow that up with an 11 strikeout performance next time out. However, that still resulted in a 4-1 loss.
