Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays 4/24/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Boston Red Sox will meet with the Tampa Bay Rays in MLB action in Tropicana Field, FL, on Sunday, April 24, 2022, at 1:10 PM ET.

 

In this game, Rich Hill will make his third appearance of the year. Hill struggled in both of his starts, allowing three runs in 4.1 innings against the Tigers and four runs in 4.2 innings against the Twins to fall to 0-1.

 

Last season, the veteran southpaw pitched well for the Rays and Mets, with a 3.86 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Hill has a dismal career record versus the Rays, with a 4.00 ERA in 24.2 innings pitched. Prior to this series, the Red Sox dropped two of three against the Blue Jays, and their offense was held in check recently.

 

So far, they’ve only won one series, which was in Detroit. The good news is that several of the defeats were by a single run.

 

Last season, Xander Bogaerts had some of his greatest at-bats against the Rays, hitting .429 with 10 RBIs in 49 at-bats. This season, the 29-year-old shortstop has a .385 batting average, nine RBIs, and a .965 OPS.

 

In the win on Friday, he had three hits. The Red Sox are producing 3.86 runs per game this season, which ranks them 16th in the majors. They have a 3.82 team ERA, which ranks them 20th in the league.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Boston’s previous 5 matches.
  • The Boston Red Sox are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • Boston is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches against Tampa Bay.

Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 4/24/2022

 

Shane McClanahan will take the mound for the Rays for the fourth time this season on Sunday afternoon. McClanahan had a strong outing in his previous start at Chicago, allowing only two runs (one earned) over six innings and earning a no-decision in a game the Rays lost.

 

McClanahan pitched well in all three appearances, allowing three or fewer runs in each. In 25 starts, the skilled southpaw had a 3.43 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in his first season in 2021. He pitched well against the Red Sox, allowing only five runs in 16 innings and posting a 1-1 record.

 

The Rays dropped two straight series to the Athletics and White Sox but bounced back this week with a series win against the Cubs. The offense was outstanding, but the pitching was average. The pitching staff is battling with a number of critical ailments.

 

Wander Franco was one of the top rookie players in the Majors, batting .393 with 10 RBIs and a 1.1 OPS in his first season. Last season, the 21-year-old shortstop batted.311 with 16 RBIs in 61 at-bats against the Red Sox, and he blasted two home runs on Friday.

 

The Rays are averaging 4.50 runs per game this season, which ranks them sixth in the Majors. They have a 3.75 team ERA, which puts them in 19th place nationally.

 

  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 11 of Tampa Bay’s last 16 matches at home.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Tampa Bay’s last 6 matches at home against Boston.

Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays should be able to get Rich Hill, the Red Sox’s starter, on the mound. The veteran had a tough start, allowing three and four runs in his two outings, which were both barely nine innings long.

 

The Rays are a run-first team, having scored 17 runs in their past three games as of Saturday night. Furthermore, Rays’ starter Shane McClanahan is pitching effectively this year, allowing only five runs in 15 innings, and silenced the Red Sox last season, allowing only five runs in 16 frames.

 

The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
