Boston (7-7) got the jump on Tampa Bay early last night and emerged with a 4-3 victory in the series opener. With a 2-1 lead in the top of the third, Rafael Devers blast a solo shot to lead things off and Enrique Hernandez later drove home Xavier Bogaerts with a single to extend the lead.

Tampa Bay (7-7) got its didn’t go down with a whimper as wunderkind Wander Franco blasted two solo home runs to keep the Rays in the ballgame. Franco is starting to heat up as that was his first multi-homer game of his young major league career.

Picks & predictions

Moneyline pick: Rays -130

Both teams have been up and down through the first two weeks of the season and the Rays will most likely get one back at the Trop this evening. Tampa Bay has been one of the better hitting teams in the league so far and those bats will come in clutch at certain points of the contest.

Player prop pick: Randy Arozarena Over 0.5 stolen bases (+550)

Arozarena has been mostly held in check on the basepaths this season, recording just one stolen base heading into Saturday. We’ll see if he gets his second against the Red Sox this evening.
