ALDS Game Three Preview: Red Sox at Rays

by Bret Sayre


It’s win-or-go-home time for Tampa Bay again, but this is no new occurrence for this group. In fact, they’ve played three elimination games in just the last eight days to get to this point. In Game Three, each club will send their best right-handed starting pitcher to the mound (no offense to John Lackey, but no such niceties for Jeremy Hellickson). The Rays shared a similar home field advantage to Boston during the regular season (51 wins at Tropicana Field), and they’ll need all the help they can get to claw their way back to Boston.

Red Sox (Clay Buchholz) at Rays (Alex Cobb) 6:00 p.m. ET
PECOTA odds of winning: Rays 50.2%, Red Sox 49.8

Projected Starting Lineups:

Rays vs Buchholz (R)

Red Sox vs Cobb (R)

David DeJesus (L) LF
