Tampa Bay vs. Boston, 10/05/2013 17:37 EDT, Score: 4 - 7

Money Line: -115 Tampa Bay

Sportsbook: DSI

Result: Loss

*4 Star MLB Play of Day* The Tampa Bay Rays were embarrassed 12-2 on Friday by the Boston Red Sox. Tampa Bay is a veteran team that knows how to win games though, and they know they really need to avoid falling behind 0-2. David Price takes the mound for Tampa in this one, and he has been superb against Boston in his career. Price has a 1.88 career ERA at Fenway Park. He had a 2.48 ERA against the Red Sox in 5 starts against them this year. John Lackey had a 8.10 ERA in two starts against Tampa Bay this year. Lackey has been inconsistent down the stretch. I trust Price much more, and I like Tampa Bay to keep this series close. The Rays are 10-1 in their last 11 games against teams with a winning record. They are 8-1 in their last 9 games against a right-handed starter. Take Tampa Bay.
