The Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Fenway Park. In the first game of this series it was the Boston Red Sox that secured the 6-3 victory. 

The Boston Red Sox come into this game with a 14-21 record overall, but they have been playing better as of late. The Red Sox have won three of their last four games and in the three wins the offense has been good. The pitching also looked good on Monday, and they are going to need to have good pitching in this game. Rafael Devers has been the top player for the Red Sox hitting six home runs and driving in 19 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Astros who sit with a 23-13 record overall and they were playing some really good baseball before losing on Monday. On Sunday, the Astros again had good pitching, and it led to the 8-0 victory. The bullpen cost them the game on Monday. Alex Bregman has been the top offensive player hitting five home runs and driving in 22 RBis.

Getting the start for the Astros will be Jose Urquidy who sits with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 4.40. In his last start against the Twins he went three innings giving up three hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Red Sox is Nathan Eovaldi who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 3.15. In his last start against the Braves he went 6.1 innings giving up six hits and three runs. 

The Red Sox are 0-4 in Eovaldi’s last four starts. The Red Sox are 1-7 in their last eight games during game 2 of a series. The under is 3-0-1 in Red Sox’s last four home games. The under is 3-0-1 in Eovaldi’s last four starts on grass. The under is 6-0 in Astros last 6 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.

The Red Sox looked good on Monday with their offense scoring six runs, and I expect they will find success again here. Urquidy sits with an ERA of 4.40 and has been a bit inconsistent. The Red Sox scored six runs on Monday, and they will reach that here again. Back the Red Sox on the money line.
