4/13 Pitchers vs Hitters Matchups: Yesterday’s Rivals Arrive

ss2

The Red Sox are off to their best start in franchise history at 10-2. Last year they didn’t reach 10 wins until April 20. After a thrilling & contentious series vs NY, where they won 2 out of 3 and scored 27 runs, they welcome the Orioles to town. Going from bad blood renewed, to their placeholder for past decade. It’s been practically a yr since the dreaded Pedroia/Machado incident.

Chris Tillman has gotten quite the task to start season off, first three lineups have been Astros, Yankees, Red Sox. Thus far he hasn’t been up to par. 9 runs given up in 9.1 innings, and walking 8 batters in that ugly stretch. But Orioles starters walking loads of batters is one of the most common things in baseball.

Eduardo Rodriguez is on the bump vs the team that drafted him & traded him to the Sox for Andrew Miller. His first start was brief, going just 3.2 innings while giving up 3 runs. But nice to see in that short time, he struck out 7 Rays batters. Luckily for him, the offense burst out with 6 runs in the 8th inning to the stun the Rays… I’m doing puns now, will do the stats and see myself out.

7:10 ET first pitch!!
