It’s a pivotal matchup in Boston on Wednesday night as the Orioles and Red Sox take part in the deciding game of their three game series.
While the Red Sox took game one in emphatic fashion, the Orioles jumped right back in the swing of things on Tuesday night as they downed Boston 6-3 and drew even with the Blue Jays for first place in the AL Wild Card race.
With Kevin Gausman slinging it for the Orioles and Rick Porcello on the bump for the Red Sox, this could turn out to be quite the duel as the season draws to a close and titles are left up for grabs.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox had a frustrating night against the Orioles, racking up nine hits yet amassing just three runs while the Orioles had nine hits for six runs.
Pomeranz (10-12)was chased early in this one, giving up five runs (all earned) on just four hits with two walks and a strikeout.
Dustin Pedroia continue his hot year, going 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI while Bogaerts backed him up with his 19th dinger of the seasons.
Looking ahead to this matchup the Red Sox send Rick Porcello to the mound.
He’ll be looking for his 21st win of the season and has put up decent numbers in September, going 2-0 and surrendering just 2 runs per appearance.
With a win over the Red Sox in game two of the three game set the Orioles evened up the Wild Card race with the Toronto Blue Jays, giving them a better foothold in the playoff picture as they are being chased by quite a few teams.
They did so by way of a couple second inning home runs, one off the bat of J.J. Hardy and the other off the bat of Nolan Reimold.
Squaring off against Porcello for the Orioles will be Kevin Gausman, a serviceable pitcher looking for his 8th win of 2016.
He’ll be looking to continue a dominant streak in pitching where he has given up just three earned runs over his past four starts.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
Baltimore took advantage of a big second inning and used a good pitching effort to hold back the Red Sox and see their playoff dreams increase.
However, they’ll be facing Porcello on Wednesday and will have a tough task ahead of them as Boston has done well against Kevin Gausman in 2016.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Boston ML and game total under 9
Both Boston and Baltimore are explosive on the offensive side of the ball but this game is going to come down to the starting matchup between Gausman and Porcello.
And though Gausman hasn’t been terrible against the Red Sox this season, Porcello has so far had Baltimore’s number in 2016 and should see his impressive pitching streak continue en route to a close win in a low scoring affair.
Red Sox will take this one and a pivotal series as the pennant race winds down.
