Pitcher vs. Hitter Matchups: 4/1

The Red Sox look to pick up their third win of the season tonight in their last game at Tropicana Field this season.

Probable Pitchers:

Hector Velazquez gets his first start of the season for the Red Sox and Jake Faria gets the start for the Rays.

On Velázquez (3-1, 2.92) :

Velázquez was picked up by the Red Sox before the 2017 season. He hasn’t pitched against the Rays before so it will be interesting to see how he will do.
