After splitting their 6 game road trip, the Red Sox return home for a 7 game homestand that starts with Oakland here on Monday.
Oakland continues it’s 9 game long road trip, as they dropped 2 of 3 to Baltimore over the weekend.
The Athletics were destroyed in every which way on Sunday, as their pitching was a complete letdown.
Oakland allowed 6 homeruns on Sunday, the most since 1994 in one game. The Athletics fell to 1-2 on their 9 game road trip, but the road has been very kind to them this year. Oakland is 9-6 on the season away from home and continues to get contributions throughout the entire lineup as they’re averaging 4.33 runs per game.
Oakland will send out RH Sonny Gray, who needs to improve himself as this rotation relies on him. Gray is just 3-3 on the season with an ERA that sits at 4.84. Gray has dropped back to back outings as he allowed 7 runs on 11 hits against the Mariners last time out.
Boston Red Sox
David Ortiz made his mark on Yankee Stadium in front of the national crowd on Sunday Night Baseball.
Ortiz blasted a pair of home runs as the Red Sox got a solid start from Steven Wright, who was one batter away from a complete game shutout. The Red Sox now return home for 7 straight, where they are 8-7 on the year and averaging well above 5 runs per game.
Boston will send out RH Clay Buchholz, who is just 1-3 on the season with a 5.71 ERA.
