Red Sox Have Been Road Villains

Water is starting to find its level in the AL East and the Boston Red Sox now enjoy a three-game lead in the division race. They’ll head to Arlington to take on the Rangers and they’ll send last year’s AL Cy Young winner to the mound in Game 1 of a three-game set where the BoSox will attempt to run their winning streak to five.

SHARK BITES
  • The Red Sox are 6-1 SU and on the runline in their last 7 games.
  • The Rangers are 3-1 SU in their last 4 games as home underdogs.
  • Rick Porcello has given up at least 3 earned runs in 6 straight starts.

It’s not quite been a repeat of 2016 for Porcello. He owns a 4-10 record to go along with a bloated 5.06 ERA through 17 starts this year and he’s been getting hit all over the ballpark, allowing an average of 8.5 hits over his last 12 appearances.

Martin Perez (4-6, 4.70 ERA), Porcello’s counterpart tonight, hasn’t been much better. The lefty has allowed seven or more hits in five consecutive starts and is likely in trouble against a Red Sox side that’s hitting .270 as a team this season.

Any total tonight seems too low given how the respective starters have been pitching and with Boston averaging seven runs a game during its streak of W’s.
