Last of the first

Here we go….the final game of the first “half” or before the All-Star Break. The Red Sox are just two games back of a Wild Card. The Tampa Bay Rays have lost 7 straight (the Sox longest losing streak is just 5) and it’s another bullpen game.

Taylor Scott (not Swift) gets the start for the Sox and, sure, he can probably toss a clean inning.

JP Sears is a lefty who actually normally starts games and pitches several innings. How quaint! So the Sox have their lefty masher Rob Refsnyder at the top of the lineup ready to go.
