Road Team Faltering In Red Sox, Indians Meetings

Home field advantage has held some significant weight when the Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians clash, as the home team has won eight of the past 10 meetings. The BoSox and the Tribe meet Monday afternoon to make up a game that was postponed on April 7.

  • Mike Napoli is batting .442 with seven home runs during his current 14-game hitting streak.
  • The Red Sox are 8-3 in their past 11 afternoon games.
  • The UNDER is 12-3 in the Red Sox’ past 15 games on the road.

Though the beginning of his tenure with the Red Sox was far from his best, Drew Pomeranz has started to look like the pitcher the team thought they were acquiring near the trade deadline. Pomeranz has only surrendered 10 hits and three runs in his past two starts – though he has walked seven batters in that span as well.

Josh Tomlin enters his start coming off his worst two-game stretch of the season. Tomlin has given up 17 hits and 14 runs in his last two starts while failing to make it out of the fifth inning in either affair.
