BoSox On The Verge of Season-High Winning Streak

The Boston Red Sox are heading toward the all-star break on an absolute tear, going 8-1 in their past nine, including victories in each of their past six. The BoSox, who have not won seven straight games since their 11-game streak near the end of last season, attempt to complete the three-game series sweep against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • Andrew Cashner allowed 5 runs with 4 walks in 5.0 innings against the Red Sox earlier this season.
  • The Red Sox are 6-0 SU and ATS in their last 6 games against the Rangers.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Rangers' last 5 games.

Doug Fister will make his third start for the Red Sox after being picked up off waivers. In both of Fister’s first two starts of the season, he has thrown at least 100 pitches and allowed three earned runs. The sinkballer has never fared well at Globe Life Park, as Fister has an 8.59 ERA in six career starts in Arlington.

Andrew Cashner didn’t exactly shine in his last start after coming off the DL, as the big right-hander allowed five runs in 5.0 innings of work before leaving the game after getting hit by a broken bat. Cashner has struggled mightily in his most recent starts, with a 6.14 ERA and a 1.77 WHIP in his past four outings.
