Jackie Bradley Jr. went 8-for-18, with a homer, 3 RBI and seven runs scored in the last six games, Xander Bogaerts has hit .417 (10-for-17), with a homer, 4 RBI and three runs scored in this period, Mookie Betts went 9-for-23, with 2 HR, 6 RBI and six runs scored, while David Ortiz went 6-for-19, with 2 HR, 5 RBI and three runs scored.
Alec Asher (0-1 with a 6.35 ERA), who will start for Philadelphia, felt the harsh reality of the major league, as the rookie right-hander was tagged for 4 runs on 8 hits in 5 2/3 innings in his debut start against the Padres last Sunday.Asher has never faced the Red Sox or any of their hitters before.
The Red Sox will send to the mound Wade Miley (10-10 with a 4.57 ERA), who had obvious problems in his last two starts, in which the left-hander gave up 22 hits and 9 runs over 12 2/3 innings at U.S. Cellular Field on Aug. 25 (4-5) and at Citi Field last Sunday (4-5).
On the other hand, Miley pitched well in his last three starts at Fenway Park, posting a 2.25 ERA in those three outings.
The left-hander went 1-1 with a 4.24 ERA in three career starts against the Phillies, but two of those three games were in Philadelphia, while he yielded just 2 hits and struck out seven over six scoreless innings in his only start outside Citizens Bank Park on April 23, 2012 (9-5), while with the Diamondbacks.
The Phillies scored four or more runs in nine of their last ten games, but won only three of those ten encounters (3-7).
I think that Boston will manage to win the second game of this series, most probably with more than one run difference.
