Red Sox Proving They Are Baseball’s Best Vs Angels

Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox reacts after hitting a double

The series between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels was supposed to be competitive but the BoSox had something to say about that. The first two games of the three-game set have seen the Red Sox outscore the Angels 19-1 while crushing nine home runs. The Red Sox will be looking for their first sweep of the Angels since April 2011 when the two teams close out their series Thursday.

  • The Red Sox have outscored opponents 46-11 during their current 6-game winning streak.
  • Andrelton Simmons is 1-for-19 with 4 strikeouts in the Angels’ last 7 games.
  • The Red Sox are just the 7th team in the live-ball era to open a season 15-2.

The Red Sox will send Eduardo Rodriguez to the bump in this one with the southpaw coming off a strong performance last Friday. Rodriguez pitched six innings of one-run baseball while fanning eight against the Baltimore Orioles. The 25-year-old has been a steady presence in the Red Sox rotation dating back to last season, giving up three or fewer earned runs in 11 of his last 12 starts.

The Angels will give Nick Tropeano his second start of the season – and his second since undergoing Tommy John surgery in August 2016. Tropeano pitched a gem against the Kansas City Royals last Thursday with the righty tossing 6.2 innings of no-run baseball.
