Rays ALDS Game 2 Today: Rays vs Red Sox Lineup, Odds, Prediction, Pick, Pitcher, TV Channel for October 8
By Gabrielle Starr
Often, when a team comes into the ALDS after winning the Wild Card, they’re riding high, while the team that’s been waiting for them has to reawaken after a few days of anticipation.
That was not the case for the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night, when they shut out the Boston Red Sox 5-0, their first time being shut out in a postseason game since 2016.
With epic performances from Wander Franco and Randy Arozarena, and a dominant start by Shane McClanahan, the Rays took a series lead, while the Red Sox looked lifeless.

Rays Pitcher Today: Shane Baz
Shane Baz made his debut on September 20, as in, a little over two weeks ago. He’s pitched well in three career big-league starts (a 2.03 ERA over 13 1/3 innings), but October baseball is built different.
Chris Sale has been Boston’s ace in the past, but not so much during the postseason. He’s never made a scoreless start. In nine regular-season games since returning from Tommy John, he had a 3.16 ERA.
