Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays: Predictions & Analysis 7/11/2022

July 11, 2022

 

Game Preview

 

The Tampa Bay Rays host a four-game series against the Boston Red Sox at Tropicana Field, and considering how close they are to each other in the standings, this is going to be a really important set for both teams.

 

This season, the Rays and the Red Sox have played 2 series already, with the Rays winning 2 games out of 3 in both series. Boston comes off a recent split against the New York Yankees at home, which means that things should be different now.

 

The Red Sox come into today’s game ranking in the top 10 of the MLB in runs scored, OPS, and strikeout rate, while ranking first in batting average, which is nothing to scoff at. With Rafael Devers, Trevor Story, and Xander Bogaerts in the lineup, it’s hard to just point our fingers at one single player as all of them are key pieces of the Boston puzzle.

 

Brayan Bello is making his 2nd start of the season for the Boston Red Sox. The 23-year-old righty made his MLB debut against the Rays last week, and he didn’t look that great. He allowed 4 runs, authoring an ERA of 9 and a 2.25 WHIP over 4 innings pitched, while striking out only 2. It’s safe to say that the Red Sox will have to rely more on their offense than anything for this game.

 

On the other hand, Tampa Bay’s starting pitcher for today’s game remains undecided, but they shouldn’t feel too worried about the pitching matchup.

As a whole, the Rays aren’t looking that great as they rank bottom 3rd of the MLB in nearly every department. To make things worse, the Rays are 0-5 in their last five Monday games, and especially today they are going up against a team that has been looking great recently.
