After a night in which Pomeranz and Joe Kelly sealed the Sox’s fate of losing the game, and at same time Yankees add Britton to their elite bullpen…. the Sox made a solid acquisition of acquiring Nathan Eovaldi to shore up their rotation. Jalen Beeks heads to Tampa, which is the perfect organization for him as they succeed at molding young pitchers. Eovaldi has made 10 starts this season, 7 of those starts has pitched beyond 5 innings. Pomeranz has made 9 starts, just twice has he pitched beyond 5 innings.

David Price takes the mound for the Sox, looking for his 12th win of the season. That would tie him with Porcello for most wins on the Sox roster, and also tie (6 pitchers) for 3rd in MLB for the most wins. Price is coming off of a shutdown performance, where the Sox won a tight 1-0 game in Detroit. He spun 6.1 scoreless innings, with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts. Price’s 13 career Wins against the Orioles are the 3rd most he has vs an opponent, behind the Yankees (15) and Blue Jays (20).

He has faced the Orioles once this season, which was the best start of his 2018 season. Pitching a complete game, he didn’t allow any runs until the 9th inning with 2 outs, a 2 run homerun. The Sox won 6-2, and Price struck out 8 batters while walking none. Pure dominance.

Dylan Bundy takes the ball for the Orioles. His ERA is currently at a career high mark of 4.57. Bundy is also going to set a career high in HRs allowed shortly. Last season he allowed 26 HRs in 169.2 innings…. already has given up 23 longballs in 108.1 innings. His last 3 starts coming against the Blue Jays, Yankees and Twins has been straight up abysmal.

(0-2, 11.16 ERA)

12.1 innings, 19 Hits, 16 Runs (15 ER), 5 HRs, 6 Walks, 8 Ks

Bundy has faced the Sox already 3 times, having an 0-2 record. But as a whole he has pitched solid against him. In 19 innings has given up 7 Runs (5 ER) in 19.2 innings for a 2.29 ERA. His most recent start opposing Boston, took a no decision in a 2-0 loss, despite that he dominated for 8 shutout innings.
