The fans at Tropicana Field will be treated to a game between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays when they take their seats on Friday.

The Red Sox will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Drew Pomeranz in this game. Pomeranz has a 8-4 record and a 3.64 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Rays will be Jake Odorizzi. The right hander has a 4.08 ERA to go along with a 5-3 record this season.

Pomeranz is 5-1 over his last eight games with five quality starts in that stretch, allowing one run in six innings to win at Toronto last time out. The 28-year-old Ole Miss product has surrendered just four earned runs in his last four outings, striking out 19 and giving up one homer in 23 2/3 innings. Tim Beckham is 2-for-4 with two walks and a homer versus Pomeranz, who is 0-1 with an 8.59 ERA in two games against the Rays in 2017.

Odorizzi grinded out a win last time out at Baltimore by yielding three runs while throwing 111 pitches over five innings in a 10-3 victory to remain unbeaten in five games (2-0). The 27-year-old Illinois native permitted three or more runs in six straight starts and allowed at least one home run in 12 consecutive outings. Pedroia is 11-for-27 with a pair of homers against Odorizzi, who is 3-3 with a 4.08 ERA in 14 career games versus Boston.

Oddsmakers currently have the Red Sox listed as 140-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

Catcher Wilson Ramos has made quite an impression on his new team with both the glove and the bat since returning from offseason knee surgery to join the improving Tampa Bay Rays. Ramos boasts three homers to go along with eight RBIs in his last four contests and looks to continue his strong play when the Rays host the American League East-leading Boston Red Sox on Friday night.

Ramos, signed as a free agent in the offseason, doubled and homered off All-Star left-hander Chris Sale in Thursday’s 4-1 triumph to open an important four-game series while throwing out two runners trying to advance. Tampa Bay will send righty Jake Odorizzi to the mound against left-hander Drew Pomeranz, who has struggled against the Rays this season but has been on a roll of late. Boston has dropped two straight after winning six in a row and could be without standout shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who left Thursday’s game with a bruised right hand after getting hit by a pitch in the first inning. Dustin Pedroia had two hits Thursday and boasts 10 RBIs in his last seven games for the Red Sox, but leadoff batter Mookie Betts is 0-for-14 in his last three contests.

Tampa Bay won its last outing, a 4-1 result against the Red Sox on July 06. Bettors who backed the Rays at 175 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Boston was a 4-1 loser in its last match on the road against the Rays. They lost as -186 favorites, while the total score of 5 made winners of UNDER bettors.
