Boston Red Sox
Boston swept the Angels this week behind the power of Mookie Betts and some good starting pitching.
Betts hit another leadoff home run in Thursday night’s game. It was his second of the series and third this season. He had four dingers in the series. Rafael Devers collected three hits after hitting a grand slam on Wednesday night.
Eduardo Rodriguez allowed three hits in six innings. He struck out five for his second consecutive win.
And now Chris Sale gets his turn. Everything seems to be going way too smoothly in April for Red Sox fans to relax. Times will get tougher.
Oakland scored 30 runs in a three-game sweep of the White Sox this week. The finale was the toughest, a 12–11 shootout at the Coliseum.
The starting pitching remains the concern for the A’s. I believe this offense is legit, as good as any in the division, minus the Astros.
Sean Manaea, as of now, is the ace. He’s been dominant in four starts: 27.2 innings, 16 hits, five earned runs and 20 strikeouts. He’s allowed four homers, despite just giving up five total runs. But they won’t all be solo shots the whole year.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Oakland A’s MLB Prediction: Sale shuts down the A’s, Boston keeps winning.
It’s getting mathematically problematic to back Boston. The line will be huge in this game but I do think the Sox will win. Best to stay away, though.
