Mike Lundin‘s Rays vs. Red Sox Free Pick
Start Time: April 14, 2017, 7:10 PM
The Boston Red Sox are coming off a 4-3 win against Pittsburgh and have alternated wins and losses through their last six games, but tonight they’ll host a Tampa Bay Rays side that is coming off three straight losses to the Yankees.
The Red Sox have hit Rays’ starter Chris Archer (1-0, 2.45 ERA) hard in previous meetings as Archer is 1-11 lifetime against Boston with a 7.30 ERA in five Fenway Park starts. Archer was 0-5 with a 5.86 ERA in five starts against Boston last year, and Mokie Betts is 8-for-23 with a pair of homers against the right-hander. The Red Sox meanwhile will hand the ball to Rick Porcello (1-0 , 4.38 ERA) who was 5-0 with a 3.07 ERA in six starts against Tampa Bay last season.
The Rays are just 5-22 in Archer’s last 27 starts vs. a team with a winning record, and I think he’ll be knocked around by the 5-4 Red Sox tonight.
