Run Support is Rare for Pomeranz

Clinching series wins has become commonplace for the Boston Red Sox this season, and the team can do so again on Tuesday when they host the Baltimore Orioles in the second of a three-game series.

Shark Bites
  • The Orioles are 0-3 SU and ATS in their last three games against the Red Sox.
  • The Orioles are 5-1 SU in their last six games after a loss.
  • The Red Sox are 5-1 SU and 6-0 ATS in their last six games.

Dylan Bundy and Drew Pomeranz are the probable starters. Bundy (8-5, 3.82 ERA) has allowed five runs in three of his last five outings. He was rocked against Boston on August 17, giving up five runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings of work in a losing effort.

Pomeranz (10-11, 3.01) has allowed three runs or less in each of his last seven starts, but has only recorded two wins during that span. The hurler is making his first career start against Baltimore.

Fenway Park has been a fantastic source of OVERs lately. In Boston's last six home games, the OVER is 5-1.
