Boston Red Sox vs Baltimore Orioles (By: Mulder)
Red Sox are off to a slow start and that is not that big of a suprise. Fading the champions in the next season still kind off stands ( sometimes ), but the signs were there of course in spring training.
And alarm bells should go off because they are 6-10, same as the O's. Yankees will start playing better soon and the Rays are really strong this season. So the AL East will be very interesting this season indeed.
Red Sox will start with RHP Hector Velasquez on the mound who posted a 2.79 ERA with very solid stuff: 8.38 K/9. I like his control: 0.00 BB/9 even it is just 9.2 innings pitched> 48.1 GB%.
He pitched this year one scoreless innings against Baltimore and in 2018: 3.09 ERA in 11.2 innings pitched.
The O's are rebuilding but they have some talent with Nunez, Villar, Alberto and Martin, altough i do not understand why Davis is still there.
- Orioles 'pen is dead last with a 7.53 ERA.
They will start with RHP Straily on the mound who i faded the last time and he got rocked against Oakland by allowing 5 runs. In the previous outing he got smashed as well by allowing 5 runs in just 1.1 innings at work against the Yankees.
In his career he allowed 6 earned runs against the Red Sox in just 8+ innings.
Red Sox to seal the series.
