The Boston Red Sox will play the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of their series at Wrigley Field on Friday afternoon.
The Boston Red Sox are 43-33 this season and have won eight of their last ten games. Boston is coming off of a series loss against Toronto, where they lost two out of the three games played in the series. The Boston pitching staff has a 3.63 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and a .233 opponent batting average this season. The Red Sox offense has scored 364 runs with a .261 batting average and a .326 on base percentage. Rafael Devers is batting .328 with 17 home runs and 45 RBI’s for the Red Sox this season. The projected starter for Boston is Rich Hill, who is 4-4 with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP over 66 innings pitched this season.
The Chicago Cubs are 30-46 this season and have won three of their last four games. Chicago is coming off of a series win against Cincinnati, where they won two out of the three games played. The Chicago pitching staff has a 4.85 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, and a .255 opponent batting average. The Cubs offense has scored 336 runs with a .250 batting average and a .325 on base percentage this year. Patrick Wisdom is batting .232 with 16 home runs and 43 RBI’s for the Cubs this season. The projected starter for Chicago is Adrian Sampson, who is 0-0 with a 1.69 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP over 10.2 innings pitched this season.
Boston was red-hot heading into their last series against Toronto, but was unable to maintain their play and lost two out of the three games. Chicago is coming off of a series win against Cincinnati, where they scored 23 runs in the last two games of the series. For this game, the Cubs are starting Adrian Sampson, who allowed two runs over five innings in his only start this season against St. Louis. Boston is starting Rich Hill, who has pitched well this season and is coming off of an outing where he allowed one run over six innings against Cleveland. I am going to take Boston to win by 1.5 runs in this matchup, as they are the better team and have the pitching advantage in my opinion.
