Milwaukee Brewers vs Boston Red Sox Prediction

I’ll go with the Red Sox in this one. Houck should be okay here. Over his last three starts he’s a tepid 1-2 but hasn’t pitched too badly. Houck has four combined earned runs in 19.2 innings of work during that time.

On Saturday the Red Sox really only had one bad inning on defense, but the offense didn’t do them any favors on a tepid five team hits either. Rafael Devers (two runs) and Ceddanne Rafaela (two RBI) were the top performers at the plate. I do like Boston to rebound and play well Sunday, though.
