Red Sox dominate the Tribe in game two

The Boston Red Sox topped the Cleveland Indians in an impressive 9-1 beatdown on Tuesday night. The Red Sox finished the game with a dozen hits. Boston’s lineup has been one of the best in the majors this season. They’re hitting a combined .263, which is the sixth-best batting average in either league. Additionally, the Sox have scored the ninth-most runs (608) in major league baseball.

Chris Sale will get the nod for the Boston Red Sox in this one. Sale has had a terrific season in 2017. Although, the left-handed ace struggled in his most recent start against the New York Yankees. Sale gave up 7 hits, 2 home runs, a walk, and 4 runs in the loss to the Yankees. He’ll try to bounce back as he takes on the Tribe’s lineup in this start on the road.

Indians rolled by the Sox

The Cleveland Indians had a disappointing showing in game two of this series against the Red Sox. The Tribe lost 9-1 on Tuesday night. Cleveland’s offense was virtually non-existent. They finished the game with only 1 hit and 1 run. The Tribe’s lineup has been above average in 2017, but they’ve only topped 5 runs once in their last six games. The Indians are hoping they can create contact against Chris Sale on Thursday night.

Trevor Bauer will start this game on the mound for the Cleveland Indians. Bauer pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his last start; a win over the Royals in Kansas City. He gave up 7 hits and 2 walks in that outing. Bauer has won his last five consecutive decisions. He’ll look to win his sixth in a row in this matchup with the Red Sox.

Trends

The Boston Red Sox are:

  •  5-1 in their last 6 road games vs. a right-handed starter.
  • 14-3 in their last 17 games vs. a right-handed starter.
  • 7-2 in their last 9 vs. American League Central.
  • 4-0 in Sale’s last 4 road starts.
  • 6-0 in Sale’s last 6 starts vs. American League Central.
  • 5-1 in Sale’s last 6 starts following a team loss in their previous game.10-2 in Sales last 12 starts with 4 days of rest.

The Cleveland Indians are:

  • 4-10 in their last 14 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.

The Red Sox have been playing very well recently, and I think they’re the better team. Furthermore, the Sox will have the better pitcher out there. Chris Sale hasn’t lost a game on the road in nearly two months. In fact, he has only allowed 1 run in his last four road starts. The Red Sox have been great against the Indians this season, and I think they’ll win this one easily. I’m taking the Sox in Cleveland on Thursday night.
