The Boston Red Sox will continue on their march towards the postseason this Saturday, as they take on a very game Cleveland Indians team at Progressive Field.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox do seem like they are getting it together a bit recently going 4-2 in their last 6 games and they have managed that with their outstanding batting lineup who seems to be getting hot at just the right time.
Unfortunately for the Sox, they will be without one of their better hitters with Kike Hernandez testing positive for COVID, so he will be out for an undetermined period of time, but with the depth in the Boston offense they should not lose too much offense.
Nathan Eovaldi will head to the hill here and the veteran has been good this year, but great in recent times only allowing 4 runs in his last 3 starts which spanned 19 innings of work, so he will be up to the challenge that the Indians bring here on Saturday.
The Cleveland Indians have also been rolling recently going 7-3 in their last 10 games and even though they are 9 games back in the division they still may be able to sneak into a wild card spot, so they still have a lot to play for.
Jose Ramirez has been great this year and even better recently, as he now has 29 home runs and he seems to be coming up clutch on a regular basis for this team and he will likely play a big role once again in this one.
Cal Quantrill is the projected starter here and he is a guy who is coming off of one excellent start against the LA Angels two hitting them through 7 strong innings of work, so it will be interesting to see what he can do against a batting powerhouse like the Red Sox.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
Cal Quantrill was awesome in that last start, but the Angels have really been struggling with the bats lately and the Red Sox offer up a much tougher challenge and I do not think it will go all that well for him.
Eovaldi has been consistent enough, and I do think he will be able to hold the Indians to a reasonable amount of runs to put the Red Sox in a great position to pick up this big road victory.
