The Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays face off on Thursday in a National League East showdown at Tropicana Field.

The Boston Red Sox have been terrible this season and although they won their last game, they had lost two games in a row. In the last game the Red Sox’s pitching was better giving up only two runs but in the previous two games they gave up 16 runs total. Xander Bogaerts has been the best player for team hitting ten home runs and driving in 26 RBI’s. In this game the Red Sox can’t fall behind early. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Tampa Bay Rays who have found success this season but they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games the Rays have scored only four runs total and that type of performance isn’t good enough. Brandon Lowe has been the best player for the Rays this season hitting ten home runs and driving in 28 RBI’s. Lowe is the only player who has had at least 20 RBI’s so fr this year.

Mike Kikham will get the start for the Red Sox and coming into this game he sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 5.42. Kikham has pitched only five innings so far this year. 

Josh Flerming will get the start for the Rays and coming into this game he sits with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 3.42. He has pitched 15.1 innings so far this year.

Fleming has been the better pitcher and there is no reason he won’t shut down a Red Sox offense that has been terrible this season. The Rays will win this game on the run line and the under is a strong play.
