Stat of the Day: The Sox have won 11 of their last 13 home openers.
Smooth starters: Red Sox starters so far this season have allowed four earned runs over 35 innings. Opponents have hit .211/.252/.273 against them.
Notes: The Sox have won five straight and will play Tampa Bay for the fifth time in seven games. … The Rays have lost five in a row since opening the season by beating the Sox. … David Price beat the Rays on March 30, throwing seven shutout innings. The former Tampa Bay ace is 4-3 with a 3.45 ERA in 10 games (nine starts) against the Rays. … Rookie Yonny Chirinos pitched four scoreless innings of relief against the Sox on Sunday. He allowed one hit, walked one, hit two and struck out three. He is expected to go only three or four innings as it’s a “bullpen day” for the Rays. … J.D. Martinez has gone 20 at-bats without a home run, 67 since the start of spring training.
