Toronto Blue Jays at boston red sox
Tonight, the Blue Jays are taking on the Red Sox in what will be game three of the series between the two. The Red Sox have won the first two of the matchups and are looking for the win in game 3 tonight. Both of these teams have been playing well so far this season with the Jays sitting at 18-12 and the Red Sox being 17-14. The Red Sox have been money at home so far this season as they are 11-7 at home and will be looking to extend their home winning streak tonight.
Nick Pivetta will be on the bump tonight for the Red Sox and Alek Manoah on the bump for the Blue Jays. Pivetta has been struggling a little bit this year and has an ERA at home of 7.07. He is 1-2 at home so far this season and in those three home games he has given up an average of 4.33 runs per game. Manoah on the other hand has been very good on the road so far this season. He has an away ERA of 2.60 and has given up 1.5 runs in those matchups with 7 innings pitched in each of the games. In the Pivetta vs Manoah matchup I think that it is an easy call and Manoah will be the better pitcher tonight.
With all of this being said Pivetta and Manoah are both pretty good pitchers, but Manoah has been better on the road than Pivetta at home. The Sox have won the last two matchups between the two and I think tonight is the night when the Jays are going to be getting their revenge.
