Tampa Bay finished third in the AL wild card race and will be facing the Cleveland Guardians in the playoffs. The Rays will be looking to end the regular season on a good note, after struggling in their last seven games. Boston had a disappointing season, but is looking to end the season with a sweep. Boston is starting Nick Pivetta, who has allowed nine runs over his last 10 innings pitched. For the Rays, Josh Fleming allowed one run over his four innings in only start since early July. I like the Rays in this game.
