The Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles face off on Wednesday at Fenway Park as they continue their MLB series of American League East teams.
The Boston Red Sox hole in the bottom of the AL East got a game deeper as they lost to the Orioles on Tuesday. Pablo Sandoval had three hits, Hanley Ramirez had two hits, and Dustin Pedroia had a hit as the Red Sox scored four runs on eight hits. Starting pitcher Joe Kelly allowed eight hits and five runs while striking out two over 3.2 innings to take the loss and fall to 2-5 for the season. For Wednesday’s game the Red Sox start Clay Buchholz who has allowed 89 hits and 37 earned runs while striking out 84 over 86 innings for a 4-6 record and a 3.87 ERA.

The Baltimore Orioles continued their mastery of the Red Sox at Fenway by beating winning Tuesday’s game. David Lough hit a home run and Manny Machado, Jimmy Paredes, and Chris Parmalee each had two hits as the Orioles scored six runs on 11 hits. Starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez allowed six hits and three runs while striking out eight over 5.0 innings to get the win and go to 6-3 for the season and Zach Britton earned his 20th save. For Thursday’s game the Orioles start Bud Norris who has allowed 55 hits and 37 earned runs while striking out 32 over 44 innings for a 2-5 record and a 7.57 ERA.
Boston is 4-10 in their last 14 games, 5-14 in game two of a series, and 5-12 in Buchholz’s last 17 starts. Baltimore is 7-1 as an underdog, 8-2 against the AL East, and 1-4 in Norris’ last five road starts. Baltimore is 6-0 in their last five meetings against Boston.
The total in this one is set at 8.5 but ither or both of these pitchers have the ability to let the flood gates open fast and it’s a good bet that at least one does and this one goes over. I also have a pick on the winning team and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
