Atlanta is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games and 23-9 in their last 32 Tuesday games. The over is 4-0-1 in Atlanta’s last 5 games. Boston is 3-7 in their last 10 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 4-1 in Boston’s last 5 interleague games. The over is 15-4-2 in these two teams last 21 head to head meetings.

Boston has been disappointing this season and comes into this series in last place in the AL East. Atlanta has struggled in recent games, but has been very good this season. Atlanta is starting Charlie Morton, who has allowed nine earned runs over his last 16 innings. Boston is starting Rich Hill, who allowed four runs over three innings pitched in first appearance after being on the IL. I like Atlanta to win this game by at least two runs and expect Rich Hill to have another rough outing.
