The Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox meet Tuesday in MLB action at Fenway Park.
The Tampa Bay Rays look for a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Rays have scored 15 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in two of their first four games. The Rays have split their last 10 games when scoring three or less runs. Manuel Margot leads the Rays with five hits and three RBI while Randy Arozarena and Brandon Lowe have combined for eight hits. Tyler Glasnow gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and six strikeouts this season. Glasnow is 2-1 with a 4.68 ERA and 40 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Boston Red Sox look for a win here to rebound from a 1-3 record. The Red Sox have scored 16 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in three of their first four games. The Red Sox have lost five straight games when scoring three or less runs. J.D. Martinez leads the Red Sox with eight hits and six RBI while Christian Vazquez and Xander Bogaerts have combined for 10 hits and one RBI. Martin Perez gets the ball, and he was 3-5 with a 4.50 ERA and 46 strikeouts last season. Perez is 2-5 with a 5.63 ERA and 53 strikeouts in his career against the Rays.
The Rays are 11-5 in their last 16 Tuesday games and 15-6 in their last 21 games as a road favorite. The Red Sox are 17-36 in their last 53 home games and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The under is 16-6 in Rays last 22 road games. The over is 8-2 in Red Sox last 10 overall. The Rays are 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in Boston and 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.
Even with a loss last night, the Tampa Bay Rays have owned the Red Sox over the last year or so. Glasnow was lights out in his season debut and he's allowing a .190 batting average with 20 strikeouts in 55 at bats against current Red Sox hitters. Glasnow is a pitcher who is going to get priced steeper and steeper as the season plays out if he keeps this up. Take advantage while you still can. Give me the Rays.
