The Rays will hope rookie starter Chris Archer (0-3, 3.22 ERA) can get the team headed in the right direction. Despite Archer pitching well in four appearances for Tampa Bay, the Rays have yet to win any of his starts. Boston has never faced the 23-year-old.
Opposing Archer will be Daisuke Matsuzaka (1-5, 7.14 ERA). With a road ERA of 10.14 this season and a career ERA against the Rays of 5.83, Matsuzaka appears to be exactly what the Rays need to get going. Ben Zobrist is 5-for-14 against Matsuzaka in his career with a home run and four RBI.
