Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox charge into this Tuesday night pairing flashing a 57-29 record that ranks them 1st in the AL East. However, Boston is far from comfortable at the top of the division, since the Yankees are but one game behind them. The Red Sox and Yankees have been chasing each other all season long for the lead in the AL East. And while Boston currently lays claim to that title, it might not be that long before things change. But to keep things the way they are, Boston will be starting Brian Johnson this Tuesday night. Johnson is 1-2 on the year and will be bringing a 4.28 ERA as well as a 1.40 WHIP to the mound this evening.
Players to Watch: Mookie Betts (21 HR, 42 RBI, .337 BA), JD Martinez (25 HR, 67 RBI, .324 BA), and Andrew Benintendi (13 HR, 53 RBI, .280 BA).
The Nats had a great start to the season but have hit a slump. Currently sitting on a 42-41 record, Washington is in danger of tilting towards a losing record on the year. What’s worse is the fact that they’re riding a 3-game losing streak at the current moment. That losing streak includes last night’s 3-4 loss to Boston at home. And since the Nats currently rank 3rd in the division, 7-games behind the NL East leading Atlanta Braves, they really need to get things back on track. To help do so, Washington will be starting Tanner Roark this evening. Roark is 3-9 on the year and brings a 4.10 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP to the table.
Players to Watch: Anthony Rendon (12 HR, 37 RBI, .291 BA), Matt Adams (13 HR, 36 RBI, .275 BA), and Bryce Harper (21 HR, 50 RBI, .217 BA).
