The Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox meet Thursday in MLB action at Fenway Park.
The Baltimore Orioles need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Orioles have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Orioles have lost 10 of their last 11 games when scoring three or less runs. Hanser Alberto leads the Orioles with 58 hits and 17 RBI while Jose Iglesias and Renato Nunez have combined for 97 hits and 51 RBI. Alex Cobb gets the ball, and he is 1-5 with a 4.76 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Cobb is 8-6 with a 3.73 ERA and 75 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Boston Red Sox look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Red Sox have scored 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last seven games. The Red Sox have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Alex Verdugo leads the Red Sox with 62 hits and 14 RBI while Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts have combined for 115 hits and 65 RBI. Martin Perez gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 3.88 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. Perez is 4-5 with a 4.77 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 36-75 in their last 111 during game 3 of a series, 60-142 in their last 202 road games and 13-39 in their last 52 Thursday games. The Red Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home favorite, 25-10 in their last 35 Thursday games and 3-8 in their last 11 home games. The under is 6-2 in Orioles last 8 overall. The over is 6-1 in Red Sox last 7 home games. The Orioles are 16-35 in the last 51 meetings.
Alex Cobb has allowed seven runs and 11 hits in his last 10 innings while Martin Perez has allowed seven runs and 16 hits in his last 22.2 innings. Cobb has been fade material for much of the season and he's been getting worse through each of these three months. Perez has been solid in the month of September and has had success against the O's in his career. Oh, the Baltimore Orioles have also lost six of their last seven games. I'll lay the reasonable juice with the Red Sox.
