The Boston Red Sox will play the Atlanta Braves in Game 1 of their series at Truist Park on Tuesday night.
The Boston Red Sox are 10-19 this season and have lost five games in a row. Boston is coming off of a series loss to the White Sox, where they lost all three games in the series. The Boston pitching staff has a 3.71 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a .225 opponent batting average this season. The Red Sox offense has scored 95 runs with a .228 batting average and a .279 on base percentage. Xander Bogaerts is batting .343 with two home runs and 10 RBI’s for the Red Sox this season. The projected starter for Boston is Garrett Whitlock, who is 1-1 with a 1.25 ERA and a 0.69 WHIP over 21.2 innings pitched this season.
The Atlanta Braves are 14-16 this season and have won three of their last four games. Atlanta is coming off of a series win against Milwaukee, where they won two out of the three games in the series. The Atlanta pitching staff has a 3.97 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a .228 opponent batting average. The Braves offense has scored 122 runs with a .226 batting average and a .301 on base percentage this year. Matt Olson is batting .264 with three home runs and 13 RBI’s for the Braves this season. The projected starter for Atlanta is Kyle Wright, who is 3-1 with a 1.74 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP over 31 innings pitched this season.
Boston comes into this game really struggling in their last 10 games, while the Braves have won three out of four. Boston is going to start Whitlock, who has been very good this season, but has not pitched many innings per outing. The Braves are going to answer with Wright, who has also been very good this year and has only given up more two runs in one start so far. This is a very good pitching matchup and runs should come at a premium. The big question to me is how long can Whitlock go before having to come out? With these two pitchers on the mound, I like the under here.
