Oakland Athletics vs. Boston Red Sox

Oakland Athletics vs. Boston Red Sox”

Red Sox hitters have slashed.292/.366/.496 on their way to 6.4 runs scored per game this season, including 8.2 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 8.0 per game over the team's last five outings (5-0 SU).

Several Red Sox hitters haven't fared too well at this ballpark.

Mookie Betts again got everything started with a leadoff home run.

Eduardo Rodriguez (2-0) pitched six innings of three-hit ball as Boston extended the best start in the 118-year-old franchise's history. Betts added another homer off Nick Tropeano (1-1) in the series finale, giving him six this season - the same number as Mike Trout.

Greinke is 12-2 with a 2.31 ERA against the Giants in 18 career starts.

There was doubt in the offseason about this team, given what the Yankees had built in the Bronx, but the Red Sox were still considered one of the preseason favorites to make the playoffs - even if it was via the Wild Card.

One thing Betts is doing more of in 2018: pulling the ball, as noted by FanGraphs. Meanwhile, Rick Porcello gave the complete opposite type of performance.

Mitch Moreland earned just three starts the first nine games of the season. Toronto 12-6 (.667) 4 games behind 3. In the game they lost, they still scored seven runs.

Shortstop Brock Holt, Boston's No. 9 hitter, had his first three-hit game since August 29, 2016. Wisler (1-0) was promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett when Anibal Sanchez sustained a hamstring injury during pregame warmups on Wednesday.

Young hit his first homer for the Angels in the fifth. He struck out eight.

Mark McGwire previously held the record set in his 204th career game in 1988. But he has started five of the past nine games.

Jason Heyward hit a home run, Kyle Schwarber had two RBIs and Jon Lester did the rest from the mound as Chicago topped visiting St. Louis as every Cubs player in the starting lineup had a hit.

The Angels tied it 1-1 with Zack Cozart's second-inning RBI single, but Boston drove in two more runs in the fourth. He allowed three runs on four hits and two walks.

Pomeranz threw 86 pitches over 5 1/3 innings in his latest minor league rehab start with Double-A Portland on Friday and the club has deemed him ready to return. However, Graveman has been awful this season, giving up at least four runs in each of his starts and a total of 19 runs over 17.1 innings of work this season. Procello would get the next three batters out in succession without allowing a run. The first baseman is 4-for-12 (.333) with two homers and five RBIs against Kendall Graveman, who starts for Oakland on Friday.
