Cobb was so-so in his last start as he was tagged with his fifth loss of the season against the Tampa Bay Rays. He went 5.2 innings giving up seven hits, three earned runs and two home runs while he struck out five and walked none. Baltimore has lost at six of their contests where Cobb has started.
He has been terrific limiting the walks as he owns a 1.84 BB/9, but he has struggled producing whiffs (4.91 K/9) and has struggled with the long ball (1.84 HR/9). He has been really unlucky owning a .384 BABIP, and when you combine this unluckiness with the inability to produce strikeouts, it leaves you with a 58.8% LOB% and a 7.06 ERA.
Baltimore has finally found a groove this past week winning four of their six contests. During that span their lineup has been hot slashing .282/.336/.592 to go with 31 extra-base hits and 45 RBI.
Boston Red Sox
It was a short outing for Pomeranz in his last start where he faced the Toronto Blue Jays. He could only muster four innings giving up five hits and three earned runs while striking out six and walking five. Control was an issue in this outing as he gave up a season-high five walks while needing 103 pitches to get through just four innings.
On the season, the lefty owns a solid 9.49 K/9, but has been struggling with walks (4.74 BB/9) and home runs (1.82 HR/9). Those numbers combined with an unlucky .343 BABIP has resulted in a high 5.47 ERA and 5.25 FIP. Most concerning is the fact that in five starts he has only accumulated 24.2 innings.
Boston was able to play winning baseball in the last week winning four of their seven contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .250/.294/.418 to go with 23 extra-base hits and 31 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 10 Runs
It is hard to back either pitcher with the way they’ve been pitching, but with the way both these lineups have been hitting, I expect runs to be scored and creep over the 10 run total.
