The Boston Red Sox shoot for another win against the Miami Marlins in Wednesday action.
The Boston Red Sox haven’t had a whole lot to cheer about this season but have been playing well the past few weeks. However the Red Sox blew a 4-0 lead on the way to a 5-4, ten inning loss at Miami on Tuesday. Steven Wright gave up a pair of runs on five hits and five BB over five frames before Junichi Tazawa blew the save in the 9th with Craig Breslow giving up a run in the 10th to lose it. The offense logged nine hits with Mookie Betts going 3-5 with a pair of RBI’s with Jackie Bradley Jr. going 2-4 with two runs. Rookie left hander Eduardo Rodriguez takes the ball against Miami for the first time in his career. Rodriguez comes off of a 2-1 loss at the Yankees with both runs scored on six hits in seven frames.

The Miami Marlins have bee slumping and the result is they have dropped to the National League East basement. The Marlins rallied from a 4-0 deficit to get in the win column with some late offense and solid work from the pen getting the job done. Starter Justin Nicolino allowed all four runs on nine hits through 5.2 innings before five relievers put up zeros. The Fish totaled 12 hits and walked nine times with Dee Gordon and Ichiro Suzuki driving in a run and scoring while JT Realmuto scored twice. Rookie Adam Conley takes the mound for his second career start when he faces the Red Sox Wednesday. Conley won his debut 14-3 against Cincinnati with two runs given up on five hits in five innings.
The over is 7-1 in Boston’s last 8 games as a favorite and is 10-3-1 in their last 14 on grass while going 10-3-1 in their last 14 overall. Miami are 1-7 in their last 8 home games and are 3-13 in their last 16 overall while the Marlins are 3-13 in their last 16 games on grass. The under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Miami while Boston are 19-7 in the last 26 meetings. I would suggest looking elsewhere because I favor Boston but they are going to find a way to lose…
