MLB: Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays

The Red Sox host the Mets for a pivotal two-game series, before they host the Other New York Team, starting tonight at Fenway Park behind Eduardo Rodriguez (7:10 p.m., NESN).

The playoff push is in full swing now, with the Sox at over a 90 percent chance to make the wild card game, per FanGraphs, thanks to a recent winning streak and a slew of underwhelming opponents to close out the season with a three-game series with the Yankees spliced in between. Today they’ll face Marcus Stroman, a very good pitcher who’s also a very good Twitter user, and you can decide for yourself which is more important. Rodriguez, a free agent at the end of the year, makes what could be one of his last starts in Boston in a Red Sox uniform. Sadness? Time will tell!

The Sox have Kyle Schwarber in the DH spot today, which means both J.D. Martinez and Alex Verdugo are in the outfield. Yikes! Unfortunately this being an AL park and all, Pete Alonso gets to DH. BOO THIS MAN! And check out the full lineups:
