What more can you say about this Boston Red Sox team? The Sox are winners of 8 of their last 10 games. Boston currently sits atop the AL East with a comfortable 10 game lead and the best record in baseball at 86-35. That should delight the home town crowd when the Red Sox host the Rays for a 3 game series starting Friday 8/17. Tampa comes in 24 games out of first place and little chance of making the playoffs.
The Red Sox and Rays have played 13 times this season with Boston holding a 9-4 advantage in wins. Although subject to change the Red Sox are scheduled to pitch Johnson (3-3) on Friday, Price (12-6) on Saturday and Sale (12-4) on Sunday. The Rays will send Stanek (1-3) and Glasnow (1-2) to the mound in the first 2 games with no starter announced for Sunday yet.
As always, Red Sox tickets are available for all 3 Boston vs Tampa games at Fenway Park this weekend at Ace Ticket.
