The Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Braves meet Sunday in MLB action at Truist Park.
The Boston Red Sox look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Red Sox have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Red Sox have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Alex Verdugo leads the Red Sox with 62 hits and 15 RBI while Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts have combined for 119 hits and 69 RBI. Nick Pivetta gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 9.28 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. Pivetta is 4-2 with a 4.97 ERA and 51 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.
The Atlanta Braves look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Braves have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Braves have won eight straight games when scoring four or more runs. Marcell Ozuna leads the Braves with 75 hits and 55 RBI while Freddie Freeman and Dansby Swanson have combined for 137 hits and 88 RBI. Bryse Wilson gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 4.26 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. This will be Wilson’s second career game against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 77-35 in their last 112 during game 3 of a series, 15-37 in their last 52 games as an underdog and 2-6 in their last 8 interleague games as an underdog. The Braves are 7-2 in their last 9 interleague games, 14-3 in their last 17 interleague home games and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The over is 5-0 in Red Sox last 5 overall. The over is 15-7-4 in Braves last 26 overall. The Red Sox are 16-5 in the last 21 meetings in Atlanta.
Nick Pivetta has pitched just once since August 10th, so it's hard to get a proper feel for his game. Bryse Wilson has allowed four runs and 12 hits in his last 11 innings. Through 10 innings at home this season, Bryse Wilson has a 2.70 ERA and nine strikeouts. The Boston Red Sox have nothing to play for at this point and we haven't seen much of Pivetta at all over the last six weeks. I'll back the Braves here and lay the RL for added value.
