The Red Sox have been the class of the AL East so far and although they have been impressive so far, the other teams in the division are starting to heat up, so they will know the importance of picking up wins against a team like the Orioles here on Friday.
The Orioles are sure to not make things easy on them though, as they have been a big surprise out of the American League, as plenty of people had them finishing dead last in this division and although that may still happen, they are only one win away from that .500 mark which few people would have had them achieving at the 32 game mark of the season.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox just scored 27 total runs in their series win against the Detroit Tigers, as they continue to be the best offense in all of baseball with guys like J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers absolutely raking early on.
The Red Sox pitching has been a point of concern so far, but it is not really a factor so far as the Red Sox have just been able to out-score their opposition, but you do have to wonder just how consistent they can be with the bats and if they do cool off will their record fall off with it.
For now though, that is not much of a worry for Red Sox fans and they now have Eduardo Rodriguez heading to the mound for this one and he has been one of the better starters for this team coming in with an ERA around 4 and a record of 4-0.
The Orioles success has been down to a mix of timely hitting and decent pitching, and although they will rank towards the bottom in most pitching categories it is still much better compared to last year.
One guy to look out for with the bat is Trey Mancini who has been so sold early on with 6 home runs and 25 RBI and he is once again primed for more in a game where his team will likely need to score plenty in order to pick up the win.
Matt Harvey is another guy who has been good so far with an ERA around 4 and a 3-1 record and although he has not faced batting lineups like the Red Sox lately he has looked good, so he very well might do well here.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
It is tough to want to side with the Orioles at this price, as -165 on the Red Sox here seems like a steal with the Red Sox likely to score plenty here and I just don’t see the Orioles being able to keep up.
