Reds at red sox
Tonight, the Reds take on the Red Sox in Boston in the first game of the series between the two. The Reds have been way better than expected this season and are sitting with 24 wins through 53 games. The Red Sox are also performing better than I thought they would and are 3 games over .500. So, what are we taking tonight between the two above average teams?
The Red Sox have Brayan Brello on the mound tonight for the 6th time this season. He has been a decent pitcher for his side thus far, but that is mostly because of the run support he gets. He is 3-0 at home this season, but all three of the games that he has played at home have had at least 15 runs scored in them. The Reds have Ben Lively on the mound tonight and it is his fifth start for the team this season. He has been one of the best pitchers for the Reds so far this season as he has a 2.65 ERA overall and a 3.86 ERA on the road this season. Lively is 2-2 in the games that he has started, but not because of bad pitching, because of bad offense.
In the game tonight I believe that the trend that Brello has set with his home games is going to continue. This means that there will be a lot of runs scored. It also means that this could be a one-sided affair, but only time will tell.
