8/10 Pitchers vs Hitters Matchups – Game 1 in Batimore

img_0912

While Mookie Betts reached base 5 times (walk included), the Sox fell to the Blue Jays last night in the series finale. Two takeaways being (1) Mookie continues to cement himself as the MVP favorite. His batting avg of .347 leads all of baseball. His teammate JD Martinez is 2nd in baseball at .331. (2) Thank God Porcello doesn’t have to face the Blue Jays in the postseason. This season he has a 9.15 ERA against the Jays in four starts. Against everyone else, his ERA is 3.38. And against the Yankees in 3 starts, his ERA is 2.53.

Nathan Eovaldi takes the mound for the Red Sox. Highlighted by media across the country, this is being rated as one of the best July deals. In two starts as a Red Sox, what more can you ask for out of the new guy. Against the Twins and an electric performance vs the Yankees, Eovaldi has fired off 15 shutout innings. He has given up 7 hits, struck out 9 and walking just 1 batter. Now through 72 innings on the year, he has given up just 55 Hits and walked 11 (62 Ks). That amounts to a 0.89 WHIP and opposing batting avg of .143.

I was gonna say that’s Koji-esque…. but just take a gander at his glorious 2013 numbers.

74.1 innings, 33 Hits, 10 Runs (9 ER), 5 HRs, 9 Walks, 101 Ks

Dylan Bundy takes the ball for the ultimate rebuilding Orioles. His last time out against the Sox was getting pounded for 5 runs early on. The game that should have never even been started was put into a long delay, then word came that it would be postponed. That is why this is a 4 game series, instead of Sox & Orioles having an off day on Monday. If that July 25 game went on, it would have been Bundy’s 3rd consecutive start of allowing 5 or more runs. Since then he has rebounded to giving up 5 Runs (4 ER) in 13 innings against the Rays and Rangers.
