Boston Red Sox vs Miami Marlins Prediction

I’ll lean toward the Red Sox. Crawford is going to need some help from the pen and the bats, though. In his last three starts, Crawford has been decent with eight earned combined over 18.1 innings on 14 hits and four walks. He’s just 1-2 in that time, however.

In their last outing Sunday the Red Sox had a pretty great pitching performance across five different arms. Boston got home runs from Rafael Devers (two RBI) and Jarren Duran on offense. The Sox do have just two or fewer runs in two of the last three games though, so it’d be nice to see a bigger total here.
