Red Sox Preview

The Boston Red Sox are 21-16 this season and they have won eight of their last ten games. Prior to losing the first game in this series, Boston won two out of three games against the Phillies. The Boston pitching staff has a 4.97 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a .261 opponent batting average this season. The Red Sox offense has scored 211 runs with a .270 batting average and a .340 on base percentage. Masataka Yoshida is batting .308 with six home runs and 24 RBI’s for the Red Sox. The projected starting pitcher for Boston is Brayan Bello, who is 1-1 with a 5.71 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP over 17.1 innings pitched this season.

Braves Preview

The Atlanta Braves are 25-11 this season and they have won six of their last seven games. Atlanta won Game 1 of this series by a score of 9-3 on Tuesday night. The Atlanta pitching staff has a 3.48 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a .238 opponent batting average. The Braves offense has scored 197 runs with a .262 batting average and a .343 on base percentage this year. Matt Olson is batting .250 with 11 home runs and 29 RBI’s for the Braves. The projected starting pitcher for Atlanta is Jared Shuster, who is 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA and a 2.42 WHIP over 8.2 innings pitched this year. 

Pick

These two teams are playing very well right now, but Atlanta has the home field advantage and they won Game 1 in this series. Boston has had the better offensive numbers this year, but Atlanta is the better pitching team. Boston is starting Brayan Bello, who has allowed six earned runs over his last 14.2 innings. Atlanta is starting Jared Shuster, who has allowed eight earned runs over his last 8.2 innings pitched. I think we are going to see a high scoring game here, but I like the Braves to get the win. 

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