Shane’s Free Pick

This is going to be a higher scoring game. Both of these offenses are good, and they are going to run up the score here. Eovaldi wasn’t as lights out in his last start and he gave up four runs in the last start. Bradley also gave up four runs in his last start and currently sits with an ERA of 5.43. Both pitchers are going to struggle and the over is going to cash.
