Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
This is a make or break series for the Red Sox. If they do not do well in these games, I do not feel they will be playing past the regular season.
While the Rays have been surging, the Red Sox have been faltering. Even with this, I am not sold on Tampa winning this game. I look for Boston to bounce back in this series.
Eduardo Rodriguez was solid in his last start and I feel like he will have another strong outing in this one.
I like like the Red Sox as home favorites.
