Oakland Athletics vs Boston Red Sox Prediction

Nick Pivetta has had his struggles at home this season, but we know what he's capable of when he's feeling good, and he has above average stuff. Pivetta has also owned the Athletics throughout his career. The Boston Red Sox are on a tear offensively and as the wins pile up you can see the confidence building. The Oakland Athletics are still the Oakland Athletics, a team that can compete some nights, but usually ends up on the losing side. I'm not stepping in front of the Red Sox at home. Give me the Red Sox to beat the Athletics once again.
