Red Sox crush Orioles to reach record 12-2

Red Sox Starting Pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez

Boston Red Sox star Mookie Betts left Saturday's game against the Baltimore Orioles after suffering a left foot contusion on a play at home plate. Boston has scored at least six runs in each of its last seven games.

I am taking the Red Sox on the run line in this one.

Watch for Manny Machado in this one as he did more damage against the Red Sox than any other opponent past year, belting six homers with 13 RBI's in 75 at bats. The team's gained 7.3 units for moneyline bettors while gaining 1.9 units against the spread (ATS). Baltimorehas covered the spread five times in its last seven games and the under has hit in three of those seven.

Boston clinched its best-ever start thanks to another dominant performance on Saturday, overwhelming the Orioles from the first inning on.

His return just two days after being hit on the hand/wrist was a welcome sight. Besides Betts (0-for-1 with a walk), third baseman Rafael Devers was the only Red Sox starter without a hit. His first real game didn't go as planned.


Orioles Manager Buck Showalter didn't know what to expect in Cobb's debut, because he knew he'd face a dramatic change from pitching in simulated games and in extended spring contests. Ramirez is tied for second in the AL in RBI (12) this season and has reached based in his last 20 games - dating back to the 2017 postseason. Dylan Bundy will start the finale and is 0-1 with a 1.35 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season.

Although Betts wasn't able to match his monster 2016 season, which featured a career-best.897 OPS, he still hit 24 home runs and stole 26 bases previous year. The Red Sox later revealed that Betts only suffered a bruised left foot on the play. All told, they could be in a far worse predicament: the Twins have postponed their last two games against the White Sox at Target Field due to a snowstorm. The bullpen has an ERA of 4.13, along with a K-per-9 of 8.41. The fourth-year right-hander is off to an outstanding start to the year, allowing only three runs in 20 innings, resulting in a 1.35 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP to go with an 0-1 record.

Manny Machado and Pedro Alvarez have led Baltimore's hitters.

Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale (1-0, 1.06) looks to continue to his strong start, having allowed only two runs in 17 innings. The Yankees, on the other hand, are fighting to keep their heads above.500 after splitting their last six games 3-3.

One year after shoulder ailments sapped him of his power - "I hit basically hit 23 homers one-handed", he noted in spring training - Ramirez appears locked, loaded, and ready to do major damage as the No. 3 hitter on what is rapidly becoming one of baseball's best offenses.
