Red Sox Look To Keep Rolling Away From Fenway

The Boston Red Sox have been road warriors of late with the club going 6-2 SU and 7-1 against the runline in its past eight games away from Fenway Park. One of those losses did come in the series opener of a four-game set with the Cleveland Indians on Monday but the BoSox bounced back to win the second game 9-1 last night.  

Shark Bites
  • Corey Kluber has a 4.98 ERA in 9 career starts against the Red Sox.
  • The Red Sox are 3-10 SU in their last 13 games on the road against the Indians.
  • The Indians are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games with Kluber as the starting pitcher.

Drew Pomeranz has been dealing for the Red Sox, as the lefty has a 2.30 ERA in his past 12 starts while holding opponents to two or fewer runs in nine of those. However, Pomeranz left his most recent start early after suffering through back spasms. The 28-year-old has struggled with back injuries for some time and the BoSox staff will keep a tight watch on his innings pitched.

The Indians will send their own slightly injured pitcher to the mound in this one in Corey Kluber. The Tribe’s ace left his last start after the sixth inning following an ankle sprain. Kluber, who has a 1.84 ERA in his past 15 starts, pitched a bullpen session Sunday and looks good, according to manager Terry Francona.
