Drew Smyly threw two great starts at the end of July but he’s given up 16 runs in less than 16 innings over three starts this month.
Still, as of now he’s a fixture in Philadelphia’s rotation with Jake Arrieta done for the year. He’s shown some good, including 17 strikeouts in those three starts this month.
He’s given up even more hits (18) and six homers, to boot. The Red Sox get a lot of hits and they hit a lot of homers so you can count on the total being up there for this one.
Boston Red Sox
But Smyly is only half the equation. Rick Porcello has just been borderline unwatchable for Boston’s fans this season.
He’s giving up double-digit hits per nine, which he did before he won the Cy Young in 2016. In fact, his hits per nine has been oscillating like crazy, every other year. He gave up 10.3 per nine in 2015, 7.8 per in 2016 (Cy Young), 10.4 in 2017, 8.3 last year, and 10.2 this season.
Philly is comparable to Boston, as far as being a hitter’s ballpark goes. It seems like if Smyly doesn’t give up a bunch of runs, Porcello will.
