6/22 Pitchers vs Hitters Matchups – Rematch with Mariners

After the Mariners put up a fight with the Sox & splitting 4 game
series, they were then swept by the Yankees in the Bronx. Coming off
of a solid offensive showing in Minnesota and now home in Fenway, have
to hope it gave the Sox added confidence as they take on the Mariners
again for a 2nd time. It is also a rematch for Steven Wright vs Wade
LeBlanc.

Steven Wright carries on his impressive run, being back in the
rotation. His 3 starts has been nothing but impressive.

(2-1, 0.45 ERA) — 20.2 innings, 11 Hits, 1 ER, 8 Walks, 15 Ks

Hope Drew Pomeranz likes having a relief role, because there’s just no
plausible way for him to reclaim a spot in the rotation. Only possible
if a starter were to go down. Unfortunately, Wright was outdueled by
LeBlanc and his 87mph heater. While his knuckler will give up the
walks, he has done an excellent job at limiting hits. That is 20 Hits
total in 36.2 innings (Lefties .163, Righties .156).

Wade LeBlanc takes the ball for the Mariners, coming off of his
masterful outing vs the Sox. In 7.2 shutout innings, he walked 2 and
struck out 9 batters. His 9 Ks are the most he has had in a game since
2011. Debuting in 2008, this is actually looking like what could be
the best season of his career.
