6/12 Pitchers vs Hitters Matchups – Game 2 at Baltimore

The Red Sox are back in a tie for 1st place. Last night’s grueling 12 inning contest, ended after the Sox came through with bases loaded and Kimbrel shut the door with 3 Ks. Kimbrel’s 21 saves is good for 2nd in MLB, behind Seattle’s Edwin Diaz. Safe to say he’s locked up a spot for the All Star Game.

Eduardo Rodriguez is on the mound for the Sox, riding high in what is looking like his best season in the majors. In his first 12 starts, he has compiled a sparkling 7-1 record with a 3.68 ERA. As the season treks on, Eduardo will be chopping away at setting new career highs for Wins, Starts, Innings pitched and Ks (77 currently, 150 career high). Ironically his 12 starts vs the Orioles (team who signed him as UFA), are the most vs any opponent thus far in the majors. This season he has been stellar in 2 starts opposing the O’s, 2-0 with an 0.77 ERA That is 1 ER in 11.2 innings.

David Hess takes the ball for the Orioles. Hess made his major league debut before starting against the Red Sox, 3 ER in 6 innings. The Red Sox gave him another view of the majors in a way that Jalen Beeks knows way too well. He has put that in rear view mirror. In the 3 starts since then, Hess has allowed just 2 ER in 18.2 innings pitched. His start in Boston has been the only time in five starts where he didn’t reach the 6th inning.


Eduardo Rodriguez — Career vs Baltimore Orioles in 12 starts, 5-5 with a 3.97 ERA. Career at Camden Yards in 7 starts, 3-2 with a 2.75 ERA.
