With their big comeback win this evening, the Boston Red Sox are now 10-4 against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays this season (to date).
The New York Yankees are 4-9 versus the D-Rays (also to date).
Tampa Bay’s closer is part of the problem. Danys Baez is 5 for 5 in save chances in games with the Yankees – and his ERA is 0.00 against New York. Against Boston, Baez has allowed 14 base runners in 7 IP and is just one for three in save chances.
Boston still has 5 games left with Tampa Bay. It would be nice if Piniella’s boys would start to play the Red Sox as tough as they have played the Yankees this season.
