The Red Sox have shocked everyone in the AL East this year, as they now have a decent lead atop the division and that seems pretty crazy considering where they were projected to be this year. The Red Sox certainly could extend that lead atop the division, as they take on a struggling Texas Rangers team at Globe Life Field in Arlington for a 4 game series.
The Rangers kicked off the series with an impressive 4-1 victory. Kyle Gibson pitch great for Texas, going 6 innings while only allowing 1 run on 3 hits. Jose Trevino led the offense going 2-3 with 2 RBI’s.
Boston bounced back in game 2 as slugger J.D Martinez homered twice, raising his major league-leading total to nine, as the Red Sox beat Kohei Arihara and the Texas Rangers 6-1 on Friday night.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox were efficient in sweeping the New York Mets in their last series winning both of those games by a 1 run margin and really showing off some of their strong pitchers out of the bullpen.
Their last game specifically was impressive against the Mets, as they were able to take down New York by a score of 1-0 and that was with Jacob deGrom pitching, so being able to pick up a win in that spot was great considering the Mets pitcher has been incredible thus far.
Garrett Richards takes the mound Sunday for Boston. He has had a rocky start to his season as he sits at just 1-2 with a 4.94 ERA
The Texas Rangers are not going to be relevant in terms of the playoffs this year, but they sure are fun to watch, as they have found plenty of success with their bats and their pitching staff gives up plenty of runs to the opposition making for great games for neutrals.
Second basemen Nick Solak has been one of the main driving forces behind this solid start for the Rangers offense, as he is currently hitting over .300 and has 7 home runs and against Eduardo Rodriguez he should be looking to make that 8.
The Texas Rangers will send Mike Foltynewicz out to take the mound Sunday for Texas. He has had a rocky start to his season as he sits at just 1-3 with a 4.61 ERA

- Red Sox are 17-10 overall

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
Boston has been great on the road this season as Thursday was only their second loss, brining the team record to 9-2.
Neither pitcher in this matchup has had a good year and I expect it to be a higher scoring affair.
I’m taking Boston to continue their road success to cap off the weekend.
