These small losing streaks will not stand.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox (90-41) look to salvage the last game of the series against the plucky Rays (69-61) this afternoon at The Trop (1:10 p.m., NESN). It’ll be Nathan Eovaldi (5-5, 3.81 ERA) versus certified ace and legit Cy Young contended Blake Snell (15-5, 2.07 ERA). No fluff today, just the business, so here are the lineups, with the note that both Andrew Benintendi and J.D. Martinez have the day off, at least to start:
