The MLB is back in action today as the Boston Red Sox will clash with the Tampa Bay Rays at the Tropicana Field. The Red Sox will head into this game with Eduardo Rodriguez as their starter and the Rays will counter with Jelen Beeks.
Boston Red Sox Form
The Red Sox are one of the better teams this season. And they will give the nod to Eduardo Rodriguez in this game. It will be the 21st start for the 26 years old left-hander. Moreover, he will be aiming for his 4th consecutive win in this game against the Rays.
The Red Sox will need to improve as they have lost two and won 2 of their last 4 games. Losing against a team like the Orioles is not acceptable for a team like the Red Sox.
On the offensive side of the game, the Red Sox score an average of 5.66 runs per game, which is the 2nd best record in the league in scoring. Also, their pitching is at 4.68 team ERA which is the 18th best record in the Majors.
Tampa Bay Rays Form
The Rays will head into this game with Jelen Beeks as their starter. Moreover, this will his 21st appearance of the season and first start this year. The young left-hander has a 2.78 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP paired with a 5-0 record in 64.2 innings of work.
The Rays are a team that needs to improve as they have only 2 wins in the last 7 games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rays score an average of 4.57 runs per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 20th spot in the Majors in scoring.
The Tampa Bay pitching staff has 3.44 team ERA, good for second in the Majors.
Both teams need to win this game. However, I go for the Red Sox in this one. They are the better team this season and Rodriguez is having a good record against the Rays. Also, the Rays will throw aa young pitcher in this game and that might come at a cost for them. Therefore, take the Red Sox to win this one.
