Boston has a tough matchup tonight at home but all indications lately are that they are up for the challenge. Nick Pivetta will take the mound for the Sox, something the home crowd will be very happy to see. Pivetta has been excellent recently, surrendering no more than 2 runs in each of his last 4 starts. In those 4 starts he’s also pitched 28 innings and struck out 22 batters (10 in one game against St Louis). He’s hitting his stride with the best of them.
We also got to see the Rays offense last night struggle, with only 2 hits and 2 walks the whole night. It’s a testament to the starter without a doubt, but also to the excellent bullpen. We can’t expect the Sox to repeat quite as dominant of a pitching night, but the odds right now are skewed too far to the Rays.
