Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox will travel to Progressive field on Monday for a critical 3 game series against the Indians. The Sox have not done themselves any favors as of late going 3-7 in the last 10 games and seriously hurting their chances in the AL Wild Card race. In an attempt to close the 6.5 game gap on the AL Wild Card leaders the Sox will send Eduardo Rodriguez (13-5, 4.17 ERA) to the mound.
Rodriguez is coming off a decent start last time out against the Royals where he gave up 2 runs in 5 innings. This is his first game against The Tribe this year, but he does have 2 lifetime starts against them and is 1-0 with a very good 2.63 ERA.
The Indians are having a fantastic season and have been on a roll as of late going 8-2 in their last 10. Unfortunately for them, division rival Minnesota is also having a great season and they now share top spot in the AL Central with them. The Indians will look to put pressure on the Twins when they send Zach Plesac (6-3, 3.13 ERA) to the hill.
Plesac didn’t get the win in his most recent effort, but pitched great going 6 strong innings of scoreless ball with 7 strikeouts. Despite a limited MLB career, he does have a previous start against the Sox where he went 5 1/3 innings and only allowed 1 run. He certainly will be looking for a repeat of that performance and nothing has happened between then and now to suggest he can’t.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Red Sox are 1-6 in their last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter.
- Red Sox are 0-5 in their last 5 road games.
- Red Sox are 0-8 in their last 8 vs. a team with a winning record.
- Indians are 6-0 in Plesacs last 6 starts.
- Red Sox are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
Free Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
I like the home-dog Cleveland Indians here as I am sold on Plesac’s talent. I think he can repeat his previous outing against the Sox and put the Indians in a good spot to take this one. I am also not convinced the Red Sox will turn this season around and don’t think they should be favorite here.
