9/13 Pitchers vs Hitters Matchups – Going for Sweep of Toronto

 

For the first time since 1946, the Red Sox reached the century mark in the Win column. With sixteen games remaining, there is no doubt they will run past the franchise best mark of 105 Wins. In fact a tidbit from ESPN last night, if the Sox get to 110 Wins (10-6 in next 16 games), Alex Cora would tie Yankees’ manager Houck for the best ever rookie season by a MLB manager. Simply incredible.

Last night Price carried on with his 2nd half surge, seven shutout innings. The thoughts of him & Sale setting the tone in October, is the definition of exhilarating. A wild pitch was the lone run in a 1-0 final. That is with the Sox having 5 Hits, 3 Walks and 3 stolen bases. They just had no answer against Aaron Sanchez, but luckily squeaked by in a tight contest.

Eduardo Rodriguez takes the mound for the Sox. After his first start back vs the White Sox, it was nothing but sunshine and good vibes. Then a week later against a likely playoff opponent in the Astros, they sent him to the showers abruptly. Rodriguez lasted just 3.1 innings, giving up 5 Runs off of 6 Hits & 3 Walks. Rodriguez has pitched well against Toronto this season.

3 starts (2-0, 2.41 ERA)

18.2 innings, 13 Hits, 5 Runs, 2 HRs, 2 Walks, 15 Ks

Sam Gaviglio takes the ball for the Blue Jays. Pitching for his third team in three seasons, Gaviglio has had a rough season. In 22 games (20 starts), he has posted a 5.25 ERA and given up 19 HRs in 104.2 innings.While the first half wasn’t so hot for him, the second half has just gotten worse for him. So these last several starts are all about ending the year on a great note, and showing the Blue Jays he deserves a shot in the 2019 opening day rotation.

9 starts (1-5, 6.04 ERA)

47.2 innings, 61 Hits, 33 Runs (32 ER), 9 HRs, 13 Walks, 43 Ks


Eduardo Rodriguez — Career vs Toronto Blue Jays in 11 games (10 starts), 3-3 with a 4.63 ERA. Career at Fenway Park in 44 starts, 14-11 with a 4.46 ERA.
