Fresh off an 8-4 defeat to the Seattle Mariners, the Boston Red Sox will now turn to a pitcher that’s had tremendous success at home this season. Rick Porcello, who’s scheduled to get the start for the BoSox, has won all five of his starts at Fenway Park this season.
- The OVER is 4-1 in the Mariners last 5 games.
- The Red Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 home games.
- The Mariners are 2-5 in their last 7 road games.
Adrian Sampson will counter the the M’s. Samson is filling the hole in the rotation for Wade Miley and will be making his major league debut. The 24-year-old has made 13 starts for Triple-A Tacoma, going 7-4 with a 3.25 ERA while striking out 61 batters and walking only 12.
Porcello has pitched at least six innings in each of his last four outings, but he’s surrendered five home runs during that span. Seth Smith (6-for-13) and Robinson Cano (9-for-24) have fared well against Porcello.
