The Rangers take on the Red Sox at Fenway Park Tuesday evening.
The Rangers maintain the lead in the AL but just dropped their series with Minnesota 2-1.
They’ve also lost 4 of their last 5 games.
The Red Sox have been struggling but just beat the Angels 2-1 in that 3 games series at Fenway.
Griffin is on the mound for the Rangers and is 3-0 with a 2.93 era and 1.09 whip.
Price is pitching for the Red Sox and is 8-5 with a 4.74 era and 1.24 whip.
The Rangers series loss to the Twins is slightly concerning considering how bad the Twins have been and the fact that the Rangers gave up 17 runs in game 2.
They’ve have also slowed down immensely in run production. They’ve scored just 13 runs in their last 4 games.
They were blistering hot leading up to this poor 5 game stretch so we would expect and it’s a bit of complacency that is causing this cold streak.
We would expect the offense to bring their A game against the Red Sox, especially in the hitter friendly ball park.
Griffin has been excellent for the Rangers and has yet to register a loss.
Since his return to the line up June 25th, he’s given up just 3 runs over his 2 starts and pitched 9.1 innings. This includes a 2 run performance over 4.1 innings against the Red Sox.
He hasn’t given up more than 3 runs in any start this season but has gone more than 6 innings just once.
The bullpen has been underperforming this year but is still a pretty good pen.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox started the season as one of the MLB’s best but has been rather average, since the start of June, the Red Sox have lost 17 games and have won just 12.
Despite leading the league in runs per game, their production is not nearly as hot as it was, which is expected.
They continue to allow too many runs, 4.9 per game, which is 22nd worst in the league.
Unless they are scoring 6 or more runs in any given game, it has been difficult for them to close games out.
They have scored 32 runs over their last 6 games, which is a good amount of runs but still below their season average and only good enough for 3 wins.
David Price was rock solid through May into mid-June but in his last 2 starts, he’s given up 10 runs over just 8.2 innings.
One of those starts were against the Rangers in Texas on June 24th. He gave up 6 over 2.1 innings and a whopping 12 hits. If the Red Sox want to win this one, they’ll have to hit their way to victory like they do most games.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
The Rangers have been struggling very recently, the Red Sox were struggling and look like they might be coming over the hump.
Offensively, the Red Sox are the favorite, since even through their recent struggles they still score over 4 runs per game.
Pitching edge goes to the Rangers, since their bullpen is much better and Griffin has yet to register a loss and only gave up 2 to the Red Sox a couple weeks ago.
A quick offensive explosion is very possible in this game which can change the game quickly but the Rangers are the favorites here.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rangers ML
Rangers lit up Price last time out and was a pain for Price in the playoffs last year too, they will get their fair share of runs in this one.
The Red Sox can still score despite their recent struggles and still have the most dangerous offensive in the league.
Griffin did great against them in his last start but probably won’t restrict them as much this time around.
