The Red Sox will take on the Rays for a three-game-split to start the new week.
The Red Sox are coming off of a series where they were swept by the Orioles, and were ‘beat in every aspect of the game,’ Alex Cora said.
The Red Sox are looking to bounce back, while the Rays are coming in strong at 2-1 on the season. That’s after they went 2-1 against the Marlins to open the new campaign.
4/5 MONDAY: Pivetta vs. Wacha
4/6 TUESDAY: Perez vs. Glasnow
4/7 WEDNESDAY: Eovaldi vs. Yarborough
Monday Nick Pivetta will take on Michael Wacha, at 7:10 PM EST on ESPN. Pivetta was traded near the deadline last year with Connor Seabold, as Heath Hembree and Brandon Workman were sent to the Phillies.

Tuesday Martin Perez will make his first start of the campaign, versus Tyler Glasnow. Perez posted a 4.71 ERA last year in Boston. The game will be at 7:10 PM EST on NESN.
