The Red Sox are 17-35 in their last 52 during game 2 of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 road games vs. a right-handed starter. The Blue Jays are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 5-0 in Estradas last 5 starts. The Red Sox are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings.
Is it OK to trust the Red Sox now that they're on a bit of a winning streak? I'm not sure. However, I like the way Boston is playing right now and they've had great success hitting right handers. I'll take the plus money.
