Boston vs Chicago Cubs
However, that win came last night.
With the Boston side seemingly cruising the match entered the eighth inning where it all just fell apart, the Cubs scored a staggering 8 runs in one inning and the match was practically finished there and then. The Red Sox had a light bullpen last night but should have star reliever Daniel Bard back in the frame for tonight's game after manager Terry Francona gave him a rest.
Before last night's big loss, the Boston Red Sox had won their last 7 games including a massive 15-5 demolition of the same opponent the previous evening. Apart from a 1-0 win against Detroit a few nights back the Sox have been scoring runs (At least 4 in all the other wins) and against Cubs pitcher James Russell who is having a horrible season with 1-4 W-L and a 6.26 ERA from 13 appearances the home town favourites should have no trouble winning by 2 runs, as the bet requires.
Ortiz, Crawford and Co. are in solid form and can bank another win tonight to take the series 2-1.
Back the Red Sox.
