Boston’s starting pitching has been crucial to its success in the 2016 MLB campaign, but it hasn’t been as fluid as they were hoping for. Boston faces off against Seattle on Sunday.
- The Mariners are 1-5 in Walker’s last 6 starts.
- The OVER is 9-1-1 in the last 11 meetings in Boston.
- The Mariners are 1-6 in their last 7 Sunday games.
The BoSox will send ace David Price to the mound, while the Mariners will counter with Taijuan Walker. Price (7-4, 4.52 ERA) has allowed three or fewer earned runs in each of his last seven starts but is having some trouble with the long ball. Price has given up five home runs in 23 innings over his last three appearances to boost his season total of 12 in 91.5 innings.
Walker (3-6, 3.69 ERA) left his last start against Tampa Bay on Tuesday due to foot issues but was declared good to go for today. He recently snapped a seven start winless streak on June 8.
