Red Sox and Rays reveal lineups for pivotal ALDS Game 3 at Fenway originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Red Sox have all the momentum in their American League Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays, and Nathan Eovaldi will try to keep it going Sunday afternoon.

The Red Sox have returned to Fenway Park for Game 3 after their offense smashed five home runs in a 14-6 victory Friday night in Tampa Bay.
