Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox enter this Thursday night matchup with an 18-5 record. That record ranks Boston 1st in the AL East and it also gives them a 4-game lead over their nearest competition. However, the top 3-teams in the division are all within 4-games of each other. Clearly the AL East is one tough division to be in. With that in mind, Boston needs as many wins as they can get. Considering that the Red Sox are 1-3 in their last 4, they’ll also be needing a bit of a rebound. To help them get there, Boston will be sending Chris Sale to the mound this evening. Sale is 1-1 on the year with a 1.86 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Mookie Betts (8 HR, 17 RBI, and .350 BA), Hanley Ramirez (3 HR, 16 RBI, .316 BA), and JD Martinez (4 HR, 15 RBI, .296 BA).
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays have been having a decent start to the year. At 14-9, Toronto can still vie for the No. 1 spot in the AL East. Considering the series is tied at 1-1, Toronto is confident they can pull off the upset. Despite having the home field advantage, the Blue Jays are pegged as the underdog this evening. This isn’t all that questionable, since Toronto is 2-4 in their last 6 matchups. To help turn the tide, the Blue Jays will be starting Marco Estrada this evening. The right-handed pitcher enters this evening’s matchup with a 2-1 record. On top of that, Estrada brings a whopping 5.32 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Curtis Granderson (3 HR, 12 RBI, .321 BA), Steve Pearce (3 HR, 11 RBI, .314 BA), and Teoscar Hernandez (3 HR, 10 RBI, .310 BA).
