BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Red Sox couldn't complete a sweep of the Rays, but they're still 10-0-and-3 in their last 13 series heading into tonight's start of a four-game set with the Central-leading Indians.
"That's our main goal, and every series, try to win it," said manager Alex Cora. "We know how hard it is, obviously two-game series are hard to win, four-game series too. But, our main goal is to win series and move on. We've been very consistent doing that since day one, and our mindset is not going to change. With the Indians, they're a good team, very similar to us. They steal bases, they put pressure on it. You know, those two guys, Ramirez and Lindor, they been doing damage getting on base, putting pressure running the bases. Hopefully they struggle against us, and we still have fun before the game and after the game."
This series will feature four American League MVP candidates--Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, and two Cora mentioned, Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor.
A pair of 15-game winners will square off in the 7:10 p.m. start. 2016 Cy Young winner Rick Porcello's 15-and-5 with an ERA just above 4. Corey Kluber won Cy's in 2014 and last season. The righty's 15-and-6 with a 2.68 mark, but his ERA's a run lower his last four starts--all wins.
