Nothing complicated about Chris Sale's strong start with the Boston Red Sox. With Sale set to oppose Blake Snell in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 7.5 runs.

The middle contest was moved up into the afternoon in an effort to miss an expected rain storm in Boston on Saturday night, and the Rays are just 4-10 in day games, including a 6-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals in a getaway game on Thursday. He has given up three or fewer runs in his last six starts. Sale has 10 or more strikeouts in six consecutive starts, matching a team record set by Pedro Martinez.

Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale hurls against the Rays on Saturday. Logan Morrison hit a solo home run off Sale in the second inning and Kiermaier smacked a two-run shot in the fifth, but the dominant lefty otherwise was in complete control.

Bogaerts' first-inning single - which pushed his major league-leading hitting streak to 15 games - was the Sox' only hit until the seventh, when their bats finally started to heat up.

"Nice win. Never a boring moment", Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said.

The Red Sox could get used to this.

Betts' two-run homer Saturday came in the third inning off Rays starter Blake Snell.

The Red Sox and Rays are scheduled to close out their three-game series Sunday with a 1:35 p.m. Mother's Day showdown.
