The Boston Red Sox look for a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Red Sox have scored seven runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Red Sox have won four of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Dustin Pedroia leads Boston with 64 hits and 22 RBI while Mookie Betts and Hanley Ramirez have combined for 53 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have won four of their last five home games. Steven Wright takes the hill, and he’s 2-2 with a 3.90 ERA and 15 strikeouts this season. This will be Wright’s first career game against the Twins.
The Twins are 21-6 in their last 27 vs. a team with a losing record and 20-8 in their last 28 games as an underdog. The Red Sox are 2-6 in their last 8 during game 4 of a series and 9-4 in their last 13 vs. American League Central. The under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The Red Sox are too talented of a team to reamin in this funk for long. After a long day Wednesday and a short recovery, I like the home team here.
