The Tampa Bay Rays look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Rays have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Rays have won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Logan Forsythe leads Tampa Bay with 74 hits and 32 RBI while Evan Longoria and Steven Souza Jr. have combined for 64 RBI. The Tampa Bay Rays have won five of their last eight home games. Alex Colome takes the hill, and he’s 3-3 with a 4.50 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. This will be Colome’s second career game against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 4-12 in their last 16 road games and 0-6 in Porcellos last 6 starts. The Rays are 2-5 in their last 7 games following an off day and 0-6 in Colomes last 6 starts. The Red Sox are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings in Tampa Bay and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Red Sox are getting to the point where they're unbackabale again, as this team can't do much of anything right. The Sox are also brutal on the road. Give me the Rays for the decent price.
