Oakland pitching has taken a beating in the first two games of this series and will now look to bounce back here on Wednesday and avoid the sweep.
Oakland pitching issues are becoming increasingly alarming right now.
The Athletics have allowed 8 runs in 5 of the last 7 games. If things weren’t bad enough for them, their bullpen has to be taxed right now. Their two starters only gave them 6.1 innings of work combined through the first two games, really making the bullpen have to work and just get Oakland to the end of the game.
Trying to give them not only a good performance, but length also, Erik Surkamp will take the hill. Surkamp will be recalled from Triple A after being sent down in April. The LH struggled allowing 25 hits in 19.1 innings of work over a 4 start span. His record sits at 0-2 with an ERA at 5.59.
Boston Red Sox
Boston’s offense always seems to wake up when they play at home.
The Red Sox have bumped their average to 6.18 runs per game at Fenway Park as they have exploded through the first two games of this series. Boston has put up 27 runs, with 5 homeruns under their belts.
Travis Shaw has been one of the main contributors, going 6 for 9 with 4 extra base hits in this series. He belted a homerun and had 5 RBIs on Tuesday in the blowout win.
Boston will send RH Rick Porcello to the mound here, trying to complete the sweep. Porcello is a stellar 5-1 on the season with an ERA that sits at 2.95. The RH has struggled against Oakland, with a 3.86 ERA in 12 career regular season games.

Oakland’s pitching has been horrific in this series.
The key here will be the bullpen. They’re taxed right now and if Surkamp can’t get deep into this one, things could get ugly once again for the Athletics.
