The Indians found their offensive groove over a 4 game set with the Reds.
They’ll carry those 4 wins into Boston, where the Red Sox have dominated this season.
Cleveland lost 2 of 3 to the Twins over the weekend after taking the series opener and it looked like this team would regress a bit.
However, the offense woke up in a big way when they took on one of the worst pitching staffs in baseball. The Tribe scored 43 runs total in the series against the Reds, which also included a come from behind win in Game 3.
Rajai Davis was one of the biggest contributors. Davis finished the 4 game set with a stat line of 9-for-16 (.563) with 10 runs scored and nine RBIs.
The Indians will send out their ace Corey Kluber. Kluber has been very inconsistent this year, but also has his run support. He’s struggled in his career against Boston and suffered the loss during the home opener for Cleveland as he opposed David Price. He allowed 4 runs on 9 hits in 5.1 innings of work.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox offense will certainly be excited to return home.
After winning 6 of 7 and scoring 73 runs in the process, they sputtered a bit against the defending champs, losing 2 of 3.
They return back to Fenway where they have gone 14-8 on the season as they’ve lit up the scoreboard. The Sox have scored 6.86 runs per game and absolutely teed off on Houston pitching last time they were at home.
They’ll send Clay Buchholz to the hill here, who could be in his last start before heading to the bullpen. Joe Kelly (shoulder) and Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) are both expected to return soon, which would bump the struggling Buchholz out of the rotation.
Boston has homered in 19 straight games.
