Red Sox Preview
The Boston Red Sox are 5-5 this season and have won three of their last four games. Prior to losing Game 1 of this series, Boston swept Detroit in three games. The Boston pitching staff has a 4.55 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a .252 opponent batting average this season. The Red Sox offense has scored 59 runs with a .245 batting average and a .326 on base percentage. Adam Duvall is batting .455 with four home runs and 14 RBI’s for the Red Sox. The projected starting pitcher for Boston is Garrett Whitlock, who is making his first appearance of the season.
The Tampa Bay Rays are 10-0 this season and have not allowed a run in three straight games. Tampa Bay won Game 1 of this series by a score of 1-0 in Monday. The Tampa Bay pitching staff has a 1.70 ERA, a 0.90 WHIP, and a .184 opponent batting average. The Rays offense has scored 76 runs with a .279 batting average and a .366 on base percentage this year. Wander Franco is batting .317 with four home runs and nine RBI’s for the Rays. The projected starting pitcher for Tampa Bay is Shane McClanahan, who is 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP over 12 innings pitched this season.
Boston is 5-3 in their last 8 games against the AL East and 3-10 in their last 13 road games. The over is 8-4 in Boston’s last 12 road games. Tampa Bay is 10-0 in their last 10 games and 7-3 in their last 10 Tuesday games. The over is 4-2 in Tampa Bay’s last 6 home games. The under is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Tampa Bay has started the season with ten straight wins and is on a very impressive three game shutout streak. Boston dominated Detroit in their last series, but will face a very tough Shane McClanahan in this matchup. McClanahan has allowed two earned runs over 12 innings pitched this year and has 12 strikeouts on the year. I like the under in this game once again.
