San Francisco Giants vs Boston Red Sox Prediction

The Boston Red Sox are swinging the bats well this week, and this is a pitching matchup that could produce fireworks. Kyle Harrison has an ERA over 4 on the season and is coming off a subpar April. Josh Winckowski is allowing over a .300 batting average on the season, and he's been even worse at home. Quick turnaround, I expect some runs in Boston on Thursday afternoon. Give me the over between the Giants and Red Sox.
