The Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles collide in game one of their doubleheader in Saturday MLB action.
The Boston Red Sox are threatening to pull away from the New York Yankees in the AL East behind a roster that can do it all. Boston is the top ranked offense at 5.39 runs on a .269 average. The Red Sox are also #1 in steals and 5th in homers with 155.

Boston is also top ranked on the mound with a 3.46 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP while the starting rotation goes deep in to games with 59 quality starts to rank third in the game.
David Price toes the rubber in game one of their doubleheader at Baltimore. Price comes off of a 5-4 win (ND) against the Yankees with two runs allowed on four hits and three BB in six innings.
The Baltimore Orioles are battling the Kansas City Royals for the dubious distinction of the worst record in baseball. Baltimore has struggled at the plate with 3.91 runs scored on a .237 BA although the bats have shown some pop with 142 homers to rank #12.
The Orioles have struggled just as much on the mound with a high 4.93 team ERA. The arms have put too many runners on base with a 1.49 WHIP while the starters have totaled 51 quality starts to rank #12.
Boston are 38-14 in their last 52 overall and are 40-15 in their last 55 games on grass and are 21-8 in their last 29 Saturday games. Over is 8-1 in Baltimore last 9 on grass and over is 7-1 in Baltimore last 8 vs. American League East and over is 10-2 in Baltimore last 12 overall. Boston are 13-3 in the last 16 meetings and Boston are 19-7 in the last 26 meetings in Baltimore.
I am seeing Jimmy Yacabonis as starting for the Orioles and if so I’d take a stab with Boston but check the lineups…
