Sean Manaea is scheduled to pitch on Monday in the opening game of this series and, so far, it’s been a bit of a drop-off in production after him in Oakland’s starting rotation.
But Daniel Mengden has been a serviceable no. 2. He’s got an ERA just over league average but a WHIP that’s a little better than that (1.15). He’s only walked five guys all season (1 per 9 innings).
The A’s won the first game in the Bronx but dropped the final two. Saturday’s game was winnable but some poor pitching and a call that went against them gave the Yankees the win.
Oakland’s pitching hasn’t been good after Manaea and Mengden so each of these first two games in Boston are big.
Boston Red Sox
Boston could have swept Toronto but that blown lead in the first game, a game in which Chris Sale struck out 14 in nine innings, was the difference between sweeping and simply winning two of three.
Drew Pomeranz labored through four innings, giving up five hits, five walks but only three runs. The bullpen picked him up, though. It kept Toronto off the board for the final five innings, giving up five hits and no walks.
JD Martinez homered and Mookie Betts collected two hits from the leadoff spot. Dustin Pedroia will begin rehabbing with Pawtucket this week. He had knee surgery in the offseason.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Oakland.
This is a good spot to fade Rodriguez because Mengden is steady and Oakland has a good chance to knock the lefty around. At plus-money, Oakland is a good buy.
