Red Sox Preview
The Boston Red Sox are 13-13 this season and they have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. Boston is coming off of a series loss to Baltimore, where they lost two out of three games. The Boston pitching staff has a 5.13 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a .264 opponent batting average. The Red Sox offense has scored 146 runs with a .252 batting average and a .329 on base percentage this season. Rafael Devers is batting .238 with nine home runs and 24 RBI’s for the Red Sox. The projected starting pitcher for Boston is Nick Pivetta, who is 1-1 with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP over 19.2 innings pitched this season.
Cleveland is 8-1 in their last 9 Friday games and 20-8 in their last 28 road games. The under is 8-1 in Cleveland’s last 9 games. Boston is 5-0 in their last 5 games following a loss and 5-2 in their last 7 home games. The over is 4-0 in Boston’s last 4 home games. The over is 10-4-2 in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings in Boston.
Cleveland comes into this game really struggling on offense and they only scored five runs in their series with Colorado. Boston has hit the ball better than Cleveland, but the Red Sox pitching staff has been roughed up. Cleveland will start Shane Bieber, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in five straight starts. The Red Sox will start Nick Pivetta, who has allowed nine earned runs over his last 9.2 innings pitched. I like the Guardians with Bieber on the mound.
