Tampa Bay Rays
It seems like Chris Archer pitches against Boston often. In fact, Friday night will only be his third start against the Sox this season. The Rays are 2–0 in those two games this year and he only gave up four runs in over 12 innings, combined.
Like Boston, Tampa Bay had Thursday night off. The Rays were traveling, though. Boston just stayed at home.
Tampa Bay is now below Baltimore at a game over .500 and in fourth place in the AL East.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox picked a good time to play 19 innings. They had the day off in between home series after beating Toronto in 19 on Hanley Ramirez’s walk-off single.
Drew Pomeranz will pitch against the Rays for the fourth time this season. Boston is 2–1 in the three so far but he’s really only pitched well in one of them. I am not bullish on Pomeranz down the stretch, though I’m no bear either. This game is pretty well-lined.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: neither starter is on top of his game.
Both offenses have seen each guy enough now. And both Archer and Pom have thrown a lot of innings this season. It feels like an over play to me.
