Game three of the series offers a chance for the Rays to finally win a series since the original Boston series. Boston will send Tim Wakefield to face off with Jeff Niemann. Todays pre-game will be short since I am running a little behind schedule.

What To Watch For:
The offense is been hot as of late. Look for that to stay the same in order to wrap up the series early.

Evan Longoria continues to make his push to be MVP with the way he has been playing. Let’s see if Longo’s patience stays with him going up against the knuckleball of Wakefield.

X-Factor:
The Giraffe will need to last longer than his usual six innings he stays in games. Niemann will also need to use a healthy balance of all his pitches to keep hitters guessing.
