Boston Red Sox (22-13) stroll into legendary Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland for a showdown against Baltimore Orioles (15-19).
The Line: Boston Red Sox (-139) vs. Baltimore Orioles (+118)
Red Sox are sending LHP M. Perez (0-2) to the mound. Perez bolsters a 4.40 ERA, 28 strikeouts and 11 walks. Orioles will send RHP J. Lopez (1-3) to the mound. Jorge Lopez holds a 6.49 ERA, 25 strikeouts and 11 walks. Don’t be fooled by M. Perez’s winless record he has pitched exceptionally well. The weather will work in favor of both starting pitchers and each respective teams bullpen’s today. Wind blowing in from left field and a cooler temperature as the night moves on will be an added wrinkle for hitters tonight.
Red Sox are first in the MLB in runs scored per game with 5.34. Baltimore ranks 25th in runs per game. Baltimore statistically is challenged tonight only slightly surpassing the Red Sox in one pitching category known as WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched) with a 1.26 league average.
Red Sox bats are sizzling! Even with the wrinkle cooler weather throws in the fold; the value on the Red Sox line is tremendous tonight. Red Sox are third in batting average and first in slugging percentage to top it all off. M. Perez will hold the line and the Red Sox will come up with enough runs to cash my best bet tonight.
