Boston Red Sox -167 / Texas Rangers +157 O/U: 10
The Texas Rangers and the Boston Red Sox will match up in MLB activity to continue their series on Tuesday.
In the Monday opener of this set, we had quite the battle, as the Rangers took a 4-3 victory in 11 innings.
For Tuesday’s game, the Rangers will be sending out Ariel Jurado in the start. Over his 35.2 innings and 3-2 record this year, Jurado has a 2.78 ERA with 28 Ks and nine walks.
Texas notched eight hits on the evening in the Monday win. Danny Santana was the big hitter for the Rangers with four knocks, one RBI and two runs in that game.
Over on the Red Sox’ side, they are going with Darwinzon Hernandez Tuesday. Hernandez is coming down from Double-A Portland for his first MLB start here.
Boston logged nine hits in the loss Monday, but couldn’t keep the runs going. The only multi-hit batter in the game for the Sox was JD Martinez with two knocks and a walk.
The Rangers are 4-0 in their last four in game two of a series and 8-3 in their last 11 overall. Texas is 17-36 in the last 53 road games and 6-17 in their last 23 Tuesday games.
Meanwhile, the Sox are 1-4 in their last five overall and 1-4 in their last five versus a team with a winning record. Boston is 2-5 in their last seven after a loss and 41-20 in their last 61 Tuesday games.
Jurado has looked solid over his last trio of starts—all quality—and put up seven earned over a span of 18.1 innings during that time.
As for the Red Sox, they haven’t played particularly well at home lately, which is something of an odd statistic from (most of) a team that blew through the regular season like tissue paper last season. Boston is just too good of a team to let that continue. I’m going Red Sox.
