Tampa Bay at Boston

3 units on Tampa Bay +135 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
We backed Tampa last night in a loss. We are going to come back with them here in game two given Tampa's recent success against Boston, and Boston's offensive woes. Last night's win was just the second in the last ten meetings vs. the Rays. Josh Beck remains a bit overvalued as he's turned in just a 2-2 record with a pedestrian 4.10 ERA thus far. James Shields has been better (3-1, 2.54 ERA). He has allowed no more than three earned runs in any start and just nine total walks in 39 innings pitched. We think there remains value on the Rays in game two.
