The Boston Red Sox up against the Baltimore Orioles does not seem like the most interesting game on the slate, but for Boston fans and this Red Sox team this series represents a huge opportunity to pull ahead of the Blue Jays and Yankees in the AL Wild Card race.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox really do need to step on it at this point, as they are coming into this series after being swept by the New York Yankees and needless to say that sweep came at the wrong time for the BoSox, as they are now on the edge of missing out on a playoff spot.
The pitching has not been great for this team here in 2021, but they now have Chris Sale back from injury and it really does look like he is rounding back into form and if they do make the playoffs having a legit ace could make all the difference.
It would also be tough to preview a Boston red Sox game without talking about the crazy offense this team has, as they seemingly bat well from top to bottom and it shows in their overall stats having scored 803 runs this year ranking them in 4th in the entire league.
Nathan Eovaldi heads to the hill for the Red Sox here and he enters the contest with a 3.88 ERA on the season and compared to a lot of the other Red Sox starters that has been as good as it gets for this Boston team.
The Orioles are clearly in full rebuild mode here in 2021, but they are another team I will be watching next year to see how they improve because they do have some nice offensive pieces in place with guys like Mancini, Mullins and Mountcastle having nice seasons.
Obviously the number one thing that needs to be worked on this coming offseason is the pitching situation, as they have the worst pitching staff in the league with their bullpen ranking last overall.
Zac Lowther gets the call to the mound here and that is good news for Red Sox fans coming into this one with a 7.66 ERA over his first few starts and against an offense like the Red Sox it is tough to see him succeeding.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
I really do not think this is enough juice on the Red Sox in this spot, as I would have had them around the -320 or -330 mark here, as Eovaldi has been consistently solid so far and even if he is not bringing his A-game here I can’t see the Orioles being able to keep up on the scoreboard.
