The Boston Red Sox need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Red Sox have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Red Sox have lost three of their last four games when scoring more than three runs. Xander Bogaerts leads Boston with 115 hits and 47 RBI while Mookie Betts and Hanley Ramirez have combined for 96 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have lost four of their last six home games. Steven Wright takes the hill, and he’s 3-4 with a 4.78 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. This will be Wright’s first career game against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a road favorite and 4-1 in Sales last 5 starts. The Red Sox are 17-39 in their last 56 games as a home underdog and 0-4 in Wrights last 4 starts. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Sale has been one of the best pitchers in the league over the last month or so, as he's won six of his last 10 starts and has double-digit strikeouts in seven of his last 10 outings. Hard to bet against him, especially with the way the Red Sox are stinking the joint up. Give me the road team by two or more runs to add value to the bet.
