Red Sox and Rays reveal lineups for pivotal ALDS Game 3 at Fenway

Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox have all the momentum in their American League Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays, and Nathan Eovaldi will try to keep it going Sunday afternoon.

The Red Sox have returned to Fenway Park for Game 3 after their offense smashed five home runs in a 14-6 victory Friday night in Tampa Bay.

Eovaldi's last start was the AL Wild Card Game against the rival New York Yankees, and he gave up only one earned run over 5 1/3 innings as the Red Sox cruised to a 6-2 victory. Eovaldi has a 1.62 career postseason ERA in seven appearances. He went 2-1 with a 2.39 ERA versus the Rays during the regular season.
