Philadelphia won the first game of a four-game set with Cincinnati and then dropped the final three, the opposite of what happened to Boston against Minnesota.
The Phils still come into Fenway Park a first place team, however. They are a game-and-a-half up on Atlanta in the NL East as it looks more and more likely that Washington doesn’t have a serious run in it.
Aaron Nola’s numbers will catch the eye: 12–3 with a 2.42 ERA and a WHIP just under 1.00. But he’s never pitched at Fenway. In fact, he’s never faced the Red Sox.
Boston’s offense was struggling before Betts and Martinez got going again in the final three games of the Minnesota series. But without Rafael Devers and Mitch Moreland in the lineup, Nola’s job is a bit easier.
Boston Red Sox
After losing a tough game on Thursday to open the series against Minnesota, the Red Sox bounced back and won the last three games to take the four-game set decisively.
Nathan Eovaldi looked fantastic in his first start with the Sox. He went seven clean innings, didn’t walk a batter and didn’t even break 90 pitches. It was an easy afternoon for the bullpen from there.
So the rotation is back to David Price. He’s won each of his last two starts, leaving part way through the seventh inning in each. He’s given up ten hits and three runs in those last two starts, combined.
The day after JD Martinez hit his league-leading 32nd home run, he drove in all three of Boston’s run on Sunday. A DH has never won the MVP but he certainly has a case for how he’s carried the Red Sox’ offense all season.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Philly.
The under certainly looks tempting but so much so that it’s fishy to me. I simply like Nola over Price and I’m willing to play Philly for small as a plus-money underdog.
