The Boston Red Sox will have only one thing on their mind this Friday and that will be revenge, as they allowed the Seattle Mariners to absolutely steal a win in the first game of this series.
The Mariners were getting no-hit into the 6th inning in their last game with the Red Sox and they managed to turn that around and at one point had managed to score 7 runs on just 3 hits to shock the Red Sox in front of the home fans.
Needless to say the Red Sox bullpen struggled with their command once Pivetta was done his stint and that is a worrying sign for this team in case they ever come back to Earth in terms of their batting performances.
The hero of that game for Seattle was Mitch Haniger who hit a 3 run bomb in extra innings to seal the win and if this Seattle Mariners team is to prove itself legit here in 2021, Haniger is going to need to stay hot with the bat, as Seattle has not exactly put together a stellar batting lineup.
Kyle Lewis was back in that game though, as he was recently back from injury and he looked quite good out on the field despite going hit-less in that game.
Boston Red Sox
The bats really have been the main thing that has propelled this team to the surprising position they find themselves in with JD Martinez and Rafael Devers along with a host of other guys coming out of the gates on fire.
It is however, going to take a lot more from their bullpen and from their starting rotation, as their pitching unit is not going to be able to continue to keep them competitive into the dog days of the season.
The bats very well could stay hot forever, but it is not likely and that is certainly not a long term solution for this Red Sox team to have success, so it will be interesting to see if the coaches can turn things around or if management is forced to make some moves.
Now it is not all doom and gloom in Boston right now, as they do hold the first spot in the AL East and do have an unreal batting lineup, so if they are able to fix a few things this team can be a contender here in 2021 when nobody really thought that was a possibility this past off-season.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
Even though I have longer term concerns about this Red Sox team, I think they are a good bet here as slight favorites at Fenway. The pitching matchup seems like a wash and the Red Sox just flat out looked like the superior team in that first game and I see them coming into this one with a lot of motivation to win and so that is the way I am going for this game.
