Red Sox Continue to Tee Off Against Righties

The Boston Red Sox are on cruise control right now after winning 14 of their previous 17 games but will be in tough when they do battle with the Cleveland Indians on Monday. The Indians, who have triumphed in eight of their last 10, opened as -127 home favorites with a total of 9.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Indians’ last nine games with a closing total of 9.5 or more.
  • The Indians are 10-2 SU and ATS in their last 12 games when opening a series.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Red Sox’ last 17 games on the road with Eduardo Rodriguez as the starting pitcher.

Eduardo Rodriguez and Mike Clevinger are expected to get the ball for the BoSox and Tribe, respectively. Rodriguez (4-3, 3.97 ERA) allowed four runs on eight hits in 5.1 innings of work in his last appearance against St. Louis, taking the loss in the process. The 24-year-old is 3-3 with a 4.09 ERA in 10 games on the road this season and will be facing Cleveland for the first time since 2015.

Clevinger (6-5, 3.75) was ripped for five runs on seven hits and four walks in three innings in his last outing vs the Red Sox on July 31. The hurler fared much better in his last start, however, striking out nine while breezing through seven scoreless frames in a winning effort against Tampa Bay on August 12.

The Red Sox have been absolutely hammering right-handed pitching of late. In Boston’s last 12 vs righties, they’re 11-1 SU.
