The Red Sox face the Rays on Wednesday night in the Trop. 

The Red Sox have been miserable all season long, and I expect their woes to continue on Wednesday.

The Sox are set to start Martin Perez on Wednesday, a guy that really struggles to find the strike zone at times. The Rays are a small-ball kind of team and can eat you alive if you give them too many free bases. I expect the Rays' lineup to put a decent amount of runs on the board early, and then continue to score when the Red Sox have to turn to their weak bullpen. 

Ryan Yarbrough may not be the flashiest guy in the league, but he is a solid lefty arm for the Rays. I expect Yarbrough to get through five-to-six innings while giving the Rays a quality start. Is he good to allow a few runs here and there, sure, but I think his Rays' lineup will have his back in this one. 

Take the Rays, a team that is hungry for a home series win after being swept in embarrassing fashion to the Orioles.
