Boston Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays

Bogaerts played just one rehab game in the minor leagues, accounting for a double and home run on Tuesday at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Xander Bogaerts, back in the lineup for the first time in almost three weeks, had Boston's first hit off Snell, a leadoff single in the fifth. "It's becoming an issue", Boston manager Alex Cora said.

Tampa opened the season by rallying for six runs in the eighth inning to beat the Red Sox, then lost six in a row to the high-flying Red Sox and are part of Boston's 19-5 start. Meanwhile, Tampa starter Blake Snell stifled the Sox, allowing two runs over 7 1/3 innings. Like I said before, in spring training, I said, 'How many innings do you need at third base.' And he's like, 'No.

Pomeranz said he didn't have command of his curveball. "That lineup is so talented and to be able to do that and limit the damage that he did you have to have everything going and he did tonight". Adversely, his counterpart Pomeranz is still looking for his first decision and has performed poorly time after time as indicated by his high ERA.

Betts and Martinez each knocked two-run doubles in the sixth.

"It's been awesome improvement", he said. It was just his third career homer and first since October 1, 2015 against Heath Hembree of the Boston Red Sox.

"It's been a while since a home run, so I'll take any one I can get", Refsnyder said.

Yonny Chirinos will get the nod for the visiting Rays. His three career homers have all come against the Red Sox.

NFL draft pick, apologizes for offensive tweets he sent in high school
Keep an eye out, fellow gamers, because it looks like this soon-to-be rookie will be spending his time hunting you down. He instead spent his freshman year playing at California's Reedley Community College, before going to Wyoming in 2015.

Friday night, the Rays hit three homers in building a 4-0 lead against Drew Pomeranz and then held on for a 4-3 victory with the tying run on first base in the ninth inning.

In a corresponding move, utility man Brock Holt was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

As for the Sox, they're rolling with David Price on the mound Saturday. Price pitched seven scoreless innnings in each of the first two starts against the Rays.

One of these players, Xander Bogaerts, suffered a fracture in his ankle on April 8th and has been on the DL ever since.

The Tampa Bay Rays jumped out to a 4-0 lead and never looked back handing the Boston Red Sox a 4-3 loss in the opener of their three game series.

The Red Sox, who started 17-2 before Sean Manaea's no-hitter began a three-game losing streak, won their last two games in Toronto.

Red Sox games have an over/under record of 13-10-1 so far in 2018. Instead, he coaxed a ground-ball double play from Mitch Moreland, retiring the side.Video: TB@BOS: Snell forces Moreland into inning-ending DPIt was a subtle but pivotal moment in the Rays' seventh straight win, the team's longest winning streak since 2014.
