The Baltimore Orioles and the Boston Red Sox will finish off their MLB campaigns with a matchup on Sunday.
Baltimore took the first game of this set 4-1 Friday, then on Saturday the Orioles kept it going with a 9-4 win.
For the Sunday game, the Orioles will send out Chandler Shepherd to start. Shepherd is 0-0 with a 7.71 ERA and 11 Ks this year.
Over on the Red Sox’ side, they’re going with Eduardo Rodriguez in the start Sunday. Over his 196.1 innings and 19-6 mark this year, Rodriguez has a 3.76 ERA with 205 Ks and 73 BBs.
The Orioles are 29-68 in their last 97 in game three of a series and 7-17 in their last 24 Sunday games. The under is 4-1 in Baltimore’s last five in game three of a series.
Meanwhile, the Sox are 45-12 in Rodriguez’s lat 57 starts and 8-3 in his last 11 Sunday starts. Boston is 40-18 in Rodriguez’s last 58 home starts and the over is 5-0 in their last three in game three of a series.
Rodriguez had a run of four straight quality starts going before his last outing, coughing up seven earned in 5.0 innings in Texas. Prior to that he’d given up just two earned across four starts and was 2-1 in that stretch.
I’m probably a little more comfortable with the Sox here.
