The hyperdestructive force known as Chris Sale (2.63 ERA) will take to the mound tonight in St. Petersburg, Florida when the Red Sox (49-36) look to bounce back after yesterday’s loss in the first game of a four-game series with the Rays (44-42; 7:10 p.m., NESN). Righty Jacob Faria (2.23 ERA) gets the start for the “home” team, though you know the Sox fans will be out in full. The only change to the lineup after yesterday’s streak-snapper is a catcher swap. Here are the full lineups:
