The Boston Red Sox look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Red Sox have scored 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Red Sox have split their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Dustin Pedroia leads Boston with 84 hits and 30 RBI while Mookie Betts and Hanley Ramirez have combined for 70 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have lost four of their last five home games. Joe Kelly takes the hill, and he’s 2-4 with a 5.32 ERA and 58 strikeouts this season. Kelly is 1-1 with a 3.32 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 2-5 in Jimenezs last 7 road starts. The Red Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter and 1-5 in Kellys last 6 starts. The Orioles are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Boston and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings overall.
Kelly is due for a good start and the day off should help the Red Sox get back on track. I like Boston to put together a complete game and get the job done.
