Boston is 6-1 in their last 7 game three’s of a series and 2-6 in their last 8 games. The over is 5-1 in Boston’s last 5 games. Tampa Bay is 5-0 in their last 5 games on astroturf and 9-3 in their last 12 Wednesday games. The over is 6-2-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 9 home games. Boston is 1-6 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Boston limps into this game after losing six out of their last eight games. Tampa Bay has bounced back well after getting swept by the Reds last weekend. Tampa Bay trails New York by 14 games in the AL East, while Boston trails the Yankees by 14.5 games. Tampa Bay has the advantage in this game as well, as Shane McClanahan hasn’t allowed more than one earned run in his last six starts. I like the Rays in this game.
