7/19 Pitchers vs. Hitters Matchups: Last Stress Free Series Until August 5th

Before the Sox begin a brutal stretch against the Yankees & Rays (14 games), they visit the dreadful 29-66 Orioles for a three game series. After this series, they don’t face a non contender again until facing the Royals on Aug 5th. This month thus far, the team has gone 9-4 in thirteen games. Yesterday’s game was an overall solid victory, as Sale pitched six shutout innings and struck out twelve batters. Rafael Devers carried on his impressive 2019 season, and now has 28 RBIs vs the Blue Jays this yr…. that’s a Red Sox record.

David Price takes the mound for the Red Sox. The Price this team wants is on the mound, not having juvenile spars with the guys in the booth. He is coming off of a five inning out against the Dodgers, that saw him five up 4 Runs (1 ER). Part of making the Sox bullpen  better is longer outings from the starters. In Price’s last six starts, only TWICE has he pitched more than five innings. Tonight he faces a team that he has had great success against, and is 8-0 in Camden Yards.

John Means takes the ball for the Orioles. One of the lone bright spots for Orioles fans this season has been the emergence of Means. In the first 19 games (15 starts) of the season, he has a 2.94 ERA. It was 2.50 before his last start, but the Rays roughed him for 6 ER in six innings. In fact, that was just the third time this season that he has allowed 4 Runs or more. And also was just the second time this season of allowing two or more homeruns. Tonight on paper, could be a fun pitcher’s duel to watch.
