Red Sox To Face The Iron Of Rays Pitching Staff

Headed On The Road
The last thing the Red Sox need to face at this point of the season is the pitching troika of Matt Moore, David Price and Alex Cobb. Apparently, Cy Young, Bob Gibson and Christy Matthewson were unavailable. As Boston limps onto the road after losing eight of their last ten, they will need to crank up their beleaguered offense against three of the toughest hurlers in the American League—two of them lefties. Amazingly, Price is the one struggling of late, but you can bet he will be no 'walk in the hermetically-sealed park'. Boston's nine-game road swing may determine whether the first month of the season was a miracle or a mirage—or maybe a little of both. Buckle up.
