The Boston Red Sox and Texas Rangers face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Globe Life Field. 

The Red Sox come into this game with an 11-20 record overall and they might be the most disappointing team in all of baseball. Over the last seven games, the Red Sox have won only one game. In the last game against the Braves they only scored three runs, and that led to the two-point loss. The Red Sox are averaging only 3.45 runs per game which is 28th in the MLB. Rafael Devers has been the top player for the Red Sox hitting five home runs and driving in 15 RBIs. 

The Rangers come into this game with a 13-17 record overall but they were able to win two of three against the Kansas City Royals. On Thursday the Rangers had some strong pitching giving up only one run, and that was enough to secure the victory. Adolis Garcia has been the top player for the Rangers hitting four home runs and driving in 18 RBIs. In this game, the Red Sox need to get some good pitching.

On the mound for the Red Sox is Nick Pivetta who has been awful this year. He currently sits with an 0-4 record and an ERA of 6.08. Even though he has struggled, he did look good in his last game giving up zero runs in six innings. If he can turn around his season, that will be key as the Red Sox try to turn around the season. 

The Red Sox are 1-6 in their last seven games overall. The Red Sox are 1-5 in their last six games against a team with a losing record. The over is 4-1 in the Rangers last five home games. 

Nick Pivetta looked to finally turn it around in the last game, and I expect he is going to find success again in this game. Pivetta didn’t give up a run in the last game, and the Rangers bats are going to struggle to put together good at bats in this game. Back the Red Sox to win this game outright.
