Divisional Dominator Total - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #911 Thursday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays @ 7:10 ET - Andrew Cashner allowed only 3 earned runs in 6 and 2/3 innings against the Yankees in his most recent start BUT he gave up 10 hits. The fact is that he has been hit hard in all 3 of his starts since coming to the Red Sox from the Orioles. Now he faces a Rays team that is heating up at the plate. With yesterday's 8-5 Tampa Bay win at Fenway Park, the Rays have now won 5 of 6 games and have scored an average of 8.3 runs per game in their past 4 games. The Red Sox will be in bounce back mode after 3 straight home losses. Of course 3 straight defeats at Fenway Park is unusual for Boston but I don't think Cashner will be the stopper they need. That said, the Red Sox are going to have to do it with their bats Thursday and that is why I like the over so much. The Rays are starting southpaw Brandon McKay. He was recalled from AAA ball for this start and he got rocked in his most recent MLB start two weeks ago. McKay has pitched extremely well at the minor league level but, of course pitching at the MLB level is always a different challenge. McKay has been hit hard in 2 of his last 3 MLB starts and certainly pitching at Fenway Park is not an easy place to get back on track. Boston has a .500 slugging percentage in home games this season which ranks them #1 in the American League. Also, the Red Sox rank 4th in the AL for slugging percentage against southpaw pitchers this season. The over is 14-4 in Boston's last 18 games and that includes 6 straight Red Sox games going over the total. More of the same expected on Thursday. 10* OVER the total in Boston
