It should be a great series in Tampa as the surprising Rays host the Red Sox in probably the biggest series in the history of the Tampa Bay franchise. Young 23 year old right-hander Justin Masterson will get the start in game 1 of this series. Masterson pitched on June 3rd against the Rays getting the victory despite giving up 4 earned runs in 6 innings. Tampa Bay plays well at home sporting a 30-13 record. James Shields has been money at home sporting an ERA at 1.99 in 8 home starts this season. The bullpen has been outstanding for the Rays as they sport an ERA of 1.91 at home this season. No more gas cans in the Tampa Bay Rays pen anymore. The play here is on the Rays at home behind their solid home record and Shields form at home. Play Tampa at –120.
