Game 2: Friday, July 27, 7:10PM ET

Starters: Lance Lynn (7-8, 5.23 ERA) vs. Chris Sale (11-4, 2.13 ERA)

Pitching:

Lynn simply didn’t have it in his last start, allowing three earned runs on three hits and issuing six walks in 5.0 innings of a 4-2 road loss to Kansas City on July. He will look to rebound from that loss in Boston. The Twins, however, are 0-4 in Lynn’s last four road starts. Sale continues to impress, as he netted his fifth win in a row on July 22, when he tossed six scoreless innings and struck out nine during a 9-1 win in Detroit. He is 7-2 with a 2.10 ERA in 13 road starts this year.

Hitting:

  • Mookie Betts is 4-for-8 with a homer vs. Lynn.
  • Brian Dozier is 12-for-33 with three home runs vs. Sale.

Writer’s Prediction:

Boston wins, 5-3.


Game 3: Saturday, July 28, 7:10PM ET

Starters: Jake Odorizzi (4-6, 4.37 ERA) vs. Rick Porcello (12-4, 3.93 ERA)

Pitching:

Odorizzi allowed just an earned run on two hits with eight strikeouts in six innings of a 5-3 loss in Kansas City on July 22. The 28-year-old hurler has allowed no more than two earned runs in four of his last five starts. As for Porcello, the 2016 Cy Young Award winner is coming off an excellent start, as he yielded zero runs and six hits in six innings of a 5-3 road win over Baltimore on July 23. He is 3-1 with a 5.57 ERA in four starts this month.

Game 4: Sunday, July 29, 1:05PM ET

Starters: Jose Berrios (6-6, 4.83 ERA) vs. Drew Pomeranz (10-5, 4.01 ERA)

Berrios was fantastic in his most recent outing, tossing seven scoreless innings and striking out nine in a 5-0 win in Toronto on July 24. Berrios is 2-1 with a 3.71 five starts this July. Pomeranz returned to action after almost two months of absence on July 24 and allowed four earned runs on six hits in 4.2 innings of a 7-6 road loss to the Orioles. The Red Sox are 7-3 in Pomeranz’s last 10 home starts.

Hitting:

  • Mitch Moreland is 3-for-6 vs. Berrios.
  • Eddie Rosario is 3-for-4 vs. Porcello.
