Red Sox get ready to take on Tampa Bay in division playoffs
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The Tampa Bay Rays wrapped up a wild card win against Cleveland Wednesday night and are getting ready to face the Red Sox in the division playoffs.
To prepare for their return to the postseason, the Red Sox played a scrimmage against each other Wednesday.
Pitcher, Jon Lester will be the leading man for the team.
“He’s been outstanding in the second half and the last eight starts he has put together for us, he’s been very strong and he’ll lead the way for us for the starting standpoint,” said Red Sox manager, John Farrell.
On Thursday morning Lester tweeted:
Can't wait to hear how loud Fenway will be tmrw! I want to hear y'all on every pitch! Love our fans, love this city, love this team! #NVRQT— Jon Lester (@JLester31) October 3, 2013
The Sox have a good regular season record against the Rays. Boston went 12-and-7. Six of those games were decided in the 9th inning, three of them, walk offs.
Fans are expecting a tough matchup, but don't seem worried for the home team.
