  @      Red Sox lead 2-1 (Best of 5)  First Pitch: Tuesday 8:37 | Tropicana Field | TBS/WEEI 2013 reg. season vs. Rays: 12-7 | +14 Run differential (+12 in ALDS) Game 4 Matchup:       Jake Peavy, RHP  2013: 12-5, 4.17 ERA Jeremy Hellickson, RHP  2013: 12-10, 5.17 ERA Career vs. Rays: 3-1, 4.91 ERA, 1.364 WHIP Career vs. Sox: 4-2, 4.21 ERA, 1.307 WHIP 2013 vs. Rays: 1-0, 4.26 ERA, 1.263 WHIP 2013 vs. Sox: 1-0, 3.44 ERA, 0.982 WHIP Last outing against the Rays: 9/12: (ND) 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 5 BB, 4 K  Last outing against the Sox: 9/12: (ND) 5.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 7 K Last game: Last night fell apart for the Sox. After giving Buchholz a comfortable 3-run lead, it was all wiped away by Longoria's 3-run shot in the 5th. Even though Rodney blew the save for the Rays in the 9th, Uehara proved to be human and gave up a walk off to a nobody.  LINEUPS:                       Check back for updated lineups                                                                                 Which Rays to watch out for: Evan Longoria & James Loney Yesterday's homer could have really sparked Longoria. Yeah, that was his only hit of the night, but it was the biggest hit of the series. He proved it only takes one swing to changed the entire complexion of the game.  Loney went 3-for-3 last night, and is batting .625 in the series. He has been a tough out and will continue to be as long as he is still playing. Key to Sox victory: Scoring a lot of runs. A lot. Both teams are going to score a lot of runs tonight. The Sox have to simply score a lot more.    Prediction Jake Peavy has had a long rest and we are uncertain how he will respond. His lucky statue may bring him luck, and he will need plenty of it. The Rays may have been awakened, and the Sox have to be very aggressive to put up a lot of hits and runs to attack the bullpen. However, I am not sure the Sox will get the very strong outing they need from Peavy and will drop this game, 9-7.
