Boston Red Sox @  Tampa Bay Rays Tips 


The Red Sox did it the hard way but are now right in the mix for a World Series following their AL Wild Card win over the Yankees. 

The Rays were the best team all year in the American League, winning 100 games in the regular season (the most in the American League), and were the third best team in in the entire MLB season behind only the San Francisco Giants (107) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (106). 

  • The Boston Red Sox ended the regular season with the third best batting average in the MLB with an average of .261
  • The Boston Red Sox had finished the regular season ranked fifth in pitching saves with 49
  • The Boston Red Sox were ranked fifth in the MLB in strikeouts with 1,527
  • The Boston Red Sox were ranked third in hits with 1,434

Head-to-Head 


The two American League rivals played six series this season, with the Tampa Bay Rays winning four of them compared to the one of the Red Sox. There was one series that ended in a tie. 

In terms of games played, these two teams played a total of 19 times throughout the season, with the Tampa Bay Rays winning 11 of them, while the Red Sox won eight.

Boston Red Sox Form

 
The Red Sox's last two series included a 2-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles before ending the regular season with a 3-0 series victory over the Washington Nationals. 

Following their series sweep of the Nationals, it meant that the Red Sox made it to the postseason via the AL Wild Card game, where they saw off rivals the New York Yankees winning 6-2 to earn the right to play in the ALDS. 

Following their AL wildcard game win, it means they have won four from their last five games. 

Tampa Bay Rays Form 


The Rays ended the season with two series wins from their previous three, with the victories coming against the Miami Marlins in a 3-0 whitewash and against the New York Yankees 2-1.

However, the Rays fell to the Houston Astros in between their series wins, losing the three game series 2-1. 

The Rays have won seven games from their past 10 and have won three from their past five.

This is sure to be a classic game and potentially go down to the wire, however, I’m picking the Red Sox to take out game 1 of the ALDS as they have the momentum following their Wild Card win.
