10-unit Play Take Boston Red Sox/Tampa Bay Rays OVER 7.5 (8:35pm EST) After a dramatic walk off home run, the Tampa Bay Rays stayed alive to extend this series to a Game 4 tonight against the Boston Red Sox. Last night's game saw nine runs cross the plate and I think we have a good chance to see even more than that today. Right-handers Jake Peavy and Jeremy Hellickson will battle in this contest and neither pitcher has been throwing the ball lately. Peavy has had his troubles all season long, but his last four outings have been particularly troublesome. Over that span he has a 5.40 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP, including 13 walks 25 innings of work. One of those games was in Tampa, where he walked five batters in six innings of work and struggled to get through six innings. Hellickson comes in 12-10 with a 5.17 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 31 starts this season. He was shelled for six runs in his last outing of the season in Toronto and couldn't complete a full five innings. The start before that he couldn't get out of the third inning and allowed five runs. So it's been a tough season for Hellickson and it's a questionable move putting him out there was the Rays' season on the line. Manager Joe Maddon usually knows what he's doing, but this move doesn't seem to make much sense. I'd be surprised if either starting pitcher is able to go more than six innings tonight, and they might not get past five. We should see some fireworks in this one, so we're on the Over.
