Bello Needs to be Lights Out
On the mound for the Red Sox will be Brayan Bello who sits with a 12-9 record and an ERA of 3.71. In his last start against the Toronto Blue Jays he went six innings giving up four hits and three runs. The Red Sox are averaging 4.9 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.82 runs per game. The offense is ranked 9th while the pitching is ranked 22nd. The pitching has really let them down this season.
Gray is Really Struggling
On the mound for the Rangers is Jon Gray and he’s struggling heading into this game. Over his last two starts he has gone 6.1 innings and given up 11 hits and seven runs. Gray should be getting better as the playoffs get closer, not getting worse. The Rangers are averaging 5.47 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.47 runs per game. The offense is ranked 3rd while the pitching is ranked 17th.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Red Sox are going to find success here. I don’t trust Jon Gray and he’s really struggled his last couple of starts. The Red Sox’s offense has been the strength for this team and he’s going to really struggle to slow them down here. The Red Sox are going to score six or seven runs here and that is going to be enough for them to get the job done. Back the Red Sox on the money line.
