Red Sox Preview

The Boston Red Sox are 2-4 this season and they have lost three games in a row. Boston lost all three games in their last series against Pittsburgh and was out scored by a total of 15-8. The Boston pitching staff has a 6.00 ERA, a 1.61 WHIP, and a .285 opponent batting average this year. The Red Sox offense has scored 35 runs with a .261 batting average and a .332 on base percentage. Adam Duvall is batting .476 with two home runs and nine RBI’s for the Red Sox. The projected starting pitcher for Boston is Chris Sale, who is 0-0 with a 21.00 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP over 3.0 innings pitched this year. 

Tigers Preview

The Detroit Tigers are 2-4 this season and they have won two of their last three games. Detroit looked horrible in their first series against the Rays, but they won their last series in Houston. The Detroit pitching staff has a 6.23 ERA, a 1.52 WHIP, and a .275 opponent batting average. The Tigers offense has scored 18 runs with a .204 batting average and a .251 on base percentage. Matt Vierling is batting .350 with one home run and three RBI’s for the Tigers. The projected starting pitcher for Detroit is Spencer Turnbull, who is 0-1 with a 27.00 ERA and a 4.71 WHIP over 2.1 innings pitched this season. 


Boston is 8-3 in their last 11 games on grass and 6-14 in their last 20 Thursday games. The over is 6-1 in Boston’s last 7 road games. Detroit is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 19-45 in their last 64 Thursday games. The under is 9-2-4 in Detroit’s last 15 Thursday games. The under is 7-1-1 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings. 


Both of these teams come into this game with a 2-4 record, but Detroit is coming off of a series win against the Astros. Both of these starting pitchers had plenty of issues in their first outing, so it will be interesting to see which one is able to bounce back here. I think we are going to see plenty of runs in this game, so I like the over here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
