Red Sox Betting Preview

The Red Sox sit with a 24-20 record overall and on Wednesday, they were impressive. The Red Sox’s offense scored 12 runs against the Seattle Mariners and that was enough for the victory. Pablo Reyes had a strong game finishing with two hits and four RBIs. On the mound for the Red Sox will be James Paxton who sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 3.60. Against the Cardinals he went five innings giving up four hits and two runs. The Red Sox are going to need a strong start from Paxton.
