The Red Sox (49-37) look to snap a two-game losing streak when they face the Rays (45-42) tonight in St. Petersburg (7:10 p.m., NESN). First-half surprise Drew Pomeranz (3.64 ERA) makes his last start before the All-Star break as he takes on the talented Jake Odorizzi (4.08 ERA), while Xander Bogaerts sits with the wrist injury he sustained yesterday in a HBP. Gotta keep it short today. Here are the full lineups:
