The Red Sox and Rays are coming off a wild game two in this ALDS. Boston struck first with a two-run first inning. Then Tampa responded with a five-run bottom of the first thanks in large part to a Jordan Luplow grand slam. Red Sox starter Chris Sale was done after just one inning of work. Then the Red Sox offense exploded for 12 more runs and five homers. J.D. Martinez returned to Boston’s line-up after dealing with an ankle injury and went 4-for-5 with four RBI’s including a three-run homer in the fifth. Kiké Hernandez went 5-for-6 in the win with a homer as well.

Aside from Luplow’s grand slam, Tampa’s offense in game two came from a Yandy Diaz RBI single and a Ji-Man Choi solo homer in the sixth. Choi went 2-for-3 on the night, while Wander Franco went 2-for-5.

In game three, the Red Sox give the ball to Nathan Eovaldi, who was able to keep the Yankees bats at bay in the Sox’ wild card win allowing just one run on four hits over 5.1 innings. This season, he faced the Rays four times going 2-1 with a 2.39 ERA. 

The Rays will start Drew Rasmussen in this one. He made just 10 starts this season after he was acquired from the Brewers via trade. Tampa converted Rasmussen from reliever to starter late in the season. He went 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in the starters role for the Rays. In September he made two starts against the Red Sox holding them to a total of two runs over nine innings of work.
