It doesn’t look like anyone’s stopping the Red Sox now. They’ve won seven straight games and are just one win away from sweeping their four-game series with the Orioles in Baltimore. David Price will take on pitching duties for Boston tonight as the Sox go for their ninth straight win in games their pricey lefty has started.
– Shark BITES
- The Red Sox are 5-0 on both the ML and RL in their last 5 games at Camden Yards.
- The Orioles are 1-8 in their last nine games as home underdogs.
- The total has gone OVER in the Red Sox’ last 6 games with Price as their starter.
It took Price a long time to adjust to his new surroundings but it looks like he’s finally comfortable as he’s allowed two or fewer runs in all but one of his last seven starts. His ERA is now below four (was 4.34 before the all-star break) and his record sits at 16-8. Price has the fifth-best run support of any qualified starter in the league so if the BoSox score five runs like they have the last three games against the Orioles, he should be set up nicely for another win.
Chris Tillman (16-6, 3.72 ERA) has the unenviable task of trying to cool the red-hot Sox tonight as he too goes for his 17th win of the season. Tillman has pitched just one game against Boston this season but yielded only five hits and one run over seven innings to beat the division leaders.
