The Red Sox are playing at home and while the Red Sox are not the best home team it will give them a slight advantage in this game here. However, the Red Sox are going to have another issue coming up and that is the fact the offense is going to struggle against Lynn who has done good for the Rangers this year. Look for the pitching of Lynn to be effective enough to shut down the Red Sox offense easily and bring home a win. Final Score, Texas Rangers win 5-3.
