Red Sox/Rays Preview

The Boston Red Sox travel to Tropicana Field in Tampa (St. Petersburg technically) to play a 4 game series against the Rays. Is it just me, or does it not feel like every time you turn around, the Rays, Yankees or Red Sox are playing each other. The Rays are off to a tough start, 8-14, and really need to start getting things turned around quickly, otherwise Boston could bury them early. The Red Sox had their 11 game winning streak snapped on Tuesday, but come back Wednesday and rally for a 6-5 win in Cleveland to win the series. Probable Starters are:

Thursday, April 30

BOS Josh Beckett (2-1, 6.00)
TPA Matt Garza (1-2, 4.97)

Friday, May 1

BOS Justin Masterson (2-0, 2.70)
TPA Andy Sonnanstine (0-3, 7.78)

Saturday, May 2

Bos Tim Wakefield (2-1, 1.86)
TPA Jeff Niemann (2-2, 4.43)

Sunday, May 3

BOS Brad Penny (2-0, 8.66)
TPA James Shields (2-2, 3.74)
