Red Sox vs. Rays lineups: Let’s maybe get some runs?

David Price is on the mound as the Red Sox look to stop skidding.

The Red Sox have dropped the first two games of this four-game set against the Rays, and they haven’t looked particularly competitive in either game. They still have a chance to split this series, though, but they need a win on Saturday. Just about 90 minutes after their last brutal loss, Boston can get that out of their system in a hurry. They’ll have David Price on the mound for this one, at least, as the lefty has been outstanding of late and has really been their most consistent starter all year. They’ll need a nearly perfect outing from him in this one if the offense the last couple days is any indication.

Speaking of that offense, they’ll be going up against Ryne Stanek as an opener in this one, and my guess is they’ll see old friend Jalen Beeks after that. They are going to have Mookie Betts as the DH for this one, with Brock Holt in right field and the recently promoted Marco Hernandez getting the nod at second base. The full lineups are below.
