ALDS Game One Preview: Rays vs. Red Sox

by Bret Sayre


The Red Sox and Rays took rather different paths to get to this American League Division Series. The Rays have won three consecutive elimination games and will be playing their fourth road game in four different cities in six days. Meanwhile, the Red Sox won the AL East by six games and actually organized an inter-squad game on Wednesday at Fenway Park just to stay sharp. Here is a look at the PECOTA odds and projected lineups for Game One.

Rays (Matt Moore) at Red Sox (Jon Lester) 3:00 p.m. ET
PECOTA odds of winning: Red Sox 55.7%, Rays 44.3%

Projected Starting Lineups:

Rays vs Lester (L)

Red Sox vs Moore (L)

Desmond Jennings (R) CF
