The Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays meet Saturday in MLB action at Tropicana Field.
The Boston Red Sox look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Red Sox have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Red Sox have won six of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Alex Verdugo leads the Red Sox with 50 hits and 14 RBI while Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts have combined for 93 hits and 57 RBI. Nathan Eovaldi gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 4.98 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Eovaldi is 2-5 with a 5.66 ERA and 46 strikeouts in his career against the Rays.
The Tampa Bay Rays look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Rays have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Rays have won nine straight games when scroing four or more runs. Willy Adames leads the Rays with 39 hits and 15 RBI while Brandon Lowe and Yandy Diaz have combined for 73 hits and 40 RBI. Tyler Glasnow gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 4.35 ERA and 66 strikeouts this season. Glasnow is 1-1 with a 4.56 ERA and 33 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Nathan Eovaldi has allowed 16 runs and 26 hits in his last 23.1 innings while Tyler Glasnow has allowed 18 runs and 29 hits in his last 35.1 innings. Eovaldi has had issues finding his form this season and he's allowing a .287 batting average to go along with a .326 on base percentage. Glasnow is going to turn things around eventually, and it starts with limiting his walks, as he's allowing a more than respectable .203 batting average on the season. I want little parts of Eovaldi until he gets back on track.
Give me the Tampa Bay Rays and whatever the line is once its released.
