The Boston Red Sox are looking for their first series sweep of the season. After locking up a series win by virtue of their 6-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays last night, the team will get a chance to win the three-game series on Sunday.
Boston will trot David Price out to the mound to pitch. Price had a terrific outing against the Baltimore Orioles in his last start, pitching seven scoreless innings and striking out seven batters. His 3.79 ERA is the best among the starters and he will look to stay hot against a solid Rays lineup.
The bigger note on the lineup is the fact that the Red Sox' top prospect, Michael Chavis, will be making the first start of his career on Sunday. Chavis had a key pinch-hit double in his first major league at-bat to help the Red Sox emerge victoriously against the Rays last night. He will look prove that his bat can help pick up what has been, so far, a struggling Red Sox offense.
That said, Chavis' defense at second base will be a question mark. He has only logged five games at the position in the minors, so that will be something to watch. Tzu-Wei Lin could end up coming in late as a defensive replacement for Chavis.
Also, Mitch Moreland, who left Saturday night's win early with back spasms, is returning to the lineup.
The Red Sox will have a tough task against the Rays, as Tyler Glasnow will be on the mound. Glasnow, a part of the team's Chris Archer deal, has been terrific through four starts, posting a 4-0 record and a 1.13 ERA. His four wins are tied for most in the American League and he is averaging a strikeout per inning.
Here's a look at the full lineups for both teams.
