The Red Sox have won five of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Dustin Pedroia leads Boston with 72 hits and 23 RBI while Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts have combined for 57 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have lost six of their last seven road games. Eduardo Rodriguez gets the ball, and he’s 2-0 with a 0.61 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodriguez’s first career game against the Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Orioles have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Orioles have won five of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Adam Jones leads Baltimore with 66 hits and 30 RBI while Chris Davis and Manny Machado have combined for 58 RBI. The Baltimore Orioles have split their last eight home games. Miguel Gonzalez takes the hill, and he’s 5-4 with a 3.54 ERA and 58 strikeouts this season. Gonzalez is 5-1 with a 3.17 ERA and 32 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series and 2-7 in their last 9 vs. American League East. The Orioles are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 25-10 in Gonzalezs last 35 home starts. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Red Sox have to win a road game eventually, right? Gonzalez hasn't been great this season and Rodriguez has looked sharp in limited action. I like the road team.
