Boston Red Sox
Sunday is a rubber match in Boston’s weekend series in New York. The odds aren’t in the Red Sox’ favor going up against Luis Severino, but David Price has been good enough in his own right.
This could be a tricky series on the heels of the trip to New York. Rick Porcello has been quite good this season, though, about on the level the Red Sox probably hoped he would be when they got him. The Cy Young season warped expectations, though.
He was cruising the last time he pitched, a game Boston won against the Angels, just not before LA made a comeback in the sixth inning.
Things have always been able to get away from Porcello quickly, especially in an atmosphere that’s friendly for the home run ball, which Washington is. That’s what I fear, for him, going into this one.
Porcello will likely go against a fringe starter in Washington, not Max Scherzer, who will pitch later in the series, and not Gio Gonzalez or Tanner Roark. Boston should have a good opportunity to score runs in this one and it ought to take advantage before it sees the big guns.
The Nats just haven’t put it together yet. I wouldn’t assume it isn’t coming, though. Adam Eaton and Daniel Murphy are hugely important to a lineup that needs someone to beat the drum. Once they get their timing back and really start cooking Washington will get hot.

Another hot day in Washington will have the ball flying. I doubt Porcello gets through unscathed.
