The UNDER Continues Hitting For Red Sox

Runs have been few and far between when the Boston Red Sox take to the diamond, which has caused the UNDER to hit in 10 of their past 14 outings. Those 14 games have seen an average of 7.1 runs per game between both the BoSox and their opponents. The Sox close out a three-game set with the New York Yankees Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Yankees are 2-6 SU in their past eight games on the road.
  • The Red Sox are 2-6 SU in their past eight games with Eduardo Rodriguez starting.
  • Dustin Pedroia is 4-for-9 with four RBIs in this series.

Michael Pineda has been fine when he is on point, but when he is off he is really off. Pineda has a 7.59 ERA in his 10 recorded losses this season but has an ERA under 4.00 in his 12 other outings. You can see it recently, as the righty has allowed four or more runs in three of his past five starts while allowing one run or less in the other two.

Eduardo Rodriguez takes the bump after being pushed up in the rotation for an ailing Steven Wright. Rodriguez has been a source of consistency for the Red Sox, as the lefty has a 3.18 ERA in his past five starts while holding opponents to three earned runs or less in each.
