Game 128: Rays at Red Sox

Get out the brooms!

After weeks and weeks and weeks of hearing about the Red Sox not winning a series against an AL East opponent the Sox sure took 2 our of 3 against the Rays quickly. And while they were swept, 2 games out of 3 against the Toronto Blue Jays were competitive. The season isn’t over just yet. At least there’s a chance even a Sox team not playoff bound finishes respectably.

Trevor Story is getting a day after coming off the IL which was the plan - and a good place to get Christian Arroyo into the lineup.

Can Nick Pivetta and Corey Kluber match Rich Hill’s breakneck pace? Probably not, but on a warm August day everyone on the field would appreciate it.
