Oakland has had a tough time this season and is one of the worst offensive teams in baseball. Boston has been inconsistent this season, but definitely has the better team in this matchup. Oakland has Blackburn on the mound, who has only allowed more than two runs in one of his last five starts. For Boston, Pivetta has only allowed more than one run in one of his last five starts. Runs should be at a premium in this game and I am taking the under.
