Tampa Bay Rays vs Boston Red Sox
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays are coming into Boston after losing a three-game series against the Astros over the weekend. The team is currently in third place in the AL East and are locked into a Wild Card spot for the postseason.
Yesterday's game between the Rays and Astros ended in a 3-1 loss for the Rays, with Corey Kluber taking the loss after pitching five innings and allowing two earned runs on six hits while striking out four. Ji-Man Choi led the Rays' offense, going 2-for-3 with a double, two hits, a walk and scored their lone run.
Manager Kevin Cash will start Tyler Glasnow on the mound to face the Red Sox. He has a 3.00 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and three strikeouts in three innings this year after missing much of the year due to Tommy John surgery.
Due to a hip problem, LF David Peralta had to leave the game against the Astros after the first inning. SP Shane Baz (elbow) and 2B Brandon Lowe (back) will miss the rest of the season.
Boston Red Sox
Following three frustrating losses to the Blue Jays, the Red Sox will host the Rays in a three-game series. Boston lost its 9th consecutive game to Toronto on Sunday. The Red Sox are now eliminated from the playoffs. With three games left against the Rays, the team is 23-50 against fellow AL East teams.
For Boston, Brayan Bello pitched four innings and allowed four runs on 10 hits, two walks and four strikeouts in their last outing, while Rafael Devers finished with just five hits.
The team will place Rich Hill on the mound to start his 26th game for the club, as he enters this contest with a record of 8-7 this season. Hill's last start was against the Baltimore Orioles at home. He pitched 6 2/3 innings without allowing a run on only five hits. In 25 games this season, he has a 4.56 ERA and 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings.
The Red Sox have several injury updates involving Tanner Houck (back), Trevor Story (heel), and Kutter Crawford (shoulder). They are all expected to miss the rest of the season.
