Boston Red Sox
Nick Pivetta won both of his starts with the Red Sox last season after coming over in a trade from the Phillies.
This season, he has started 4–0 in six starts. He has posted a 135 ERA+ in over 30 innings.
His WHIP is down, too, thanks to just over six hits allowed per nine innings. Perhaps part of the reason Pivetta has been tougher to hit is because he’s being more picky about where he hits the strike zone.
That has led to a career-high 5.6 batters per nine innings but the trade-off seems to be working for the undefeated Pivetta.
Enrique Hernandez has not played since Boston’s last series against Detroit. He’s on the 10-day Injured List with a hamstring strain. Second baseman Christian Arroyo hasn’t played since the Detroit series either. He got hit on the hand with a pitch.
Those injuries have made room for Michael Chavis, who was recalled from the minor leagues in time for Saturday’s game. He homered in his first at-bat to give the Red Sox an early lead.
Baltimore’s Dean Kremer will look for his first win of 2021 in the series finale.
Twenty-one years old and originally a draft pick of the Padres and then Dodgers, Kremer was born in California but identifies as Israeli. He was the first Israeli to get drafted by a big league team.
Kremer came to Baltimore as part of the Manny Machado deal. He won his debut last season against the Yankees with six innings and just one hit and one run allowed but hasn’t won since.
He matched his career-high of six innings pitched his last time out against Seattle. Kremer gave up two hits and a run in a Baltimore win but did not factor into the decision.
MLB Betting Trends:

- Red Sox are 11-5 in their last 16 road games vs. a right-handed starter.
- Under is 4-0 in Red Sox last 4 Sunday games.
- Under is 5-0 in Orioles last 5 vs. American League East.
- Head to Head: Red Sox are 35-16 in the last 51 meetings in Baltimore.
Free Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction: the Orioles salvage a game.
It’s still early on Saturday but Boston has jumped out to a lead. Assuming the Red Sox hold on, they will go for the sweep on Sunday.
But look for Kremer to quite possibly give Boston some small problems in his first start against the Red Sox.
And Baltimore gets a win to avoid a sweep.
