Tampa Bay Rays
Charlie Morton may be thirty-five but he’s only turned into a strikeout pitcher in the last four seasons. Prior to 2016, when he left Pittsburgh and went to Philadelphia, Morton had never struck out more than 7.2 batters per nine innings in a season, and he usually struck out five or six per nine.
Then in 2016, he fanned 9.9 per nine and has been in double-digits ever since: 10.0 in 2017, 10.8 in 2018, and 11.5 so far this season in 2019.
Remarkably, he’s upped his strikeouts significantly without walking many more batters or giving up many more home runs. He still gives up less than one gopher ball per nine innings.
He had given up five runs in just over twenty innings before his last start, which was his worst in a Tampa Bay uniform. He went six innings, gave up five hits, walked two, struck out nine, and gave up five runs. He’ll be a tough match for the inconsistent Red Sox’ offense.
Boston Red Sox
David Price is 5–4 with a 3.28 ERA in just over ninety career innings against his former team, the team that drafted him first overall in 2007 out of Vanderbilt.
He didn’t get the win in his last start, also against the Rays. He went five innings, gave up two runs, struck out ten and hit one-hundred pitches for the first time this season. Ever since giving up three home runs in his first start against Oakland, Price hasn’t allowed one to leave the park.
After finishing up a four-game series vs. Detroit on Thursday (Boston has to win to earn a split), the Sox host the Rays for three and the Athletics for two before hitting the road once again.
Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Tampa Bay.
Price will give up something. He always does. I’m not sure the sure can be expected from Morton, who is pretty tough.
