For the pitcher role starting on Thursday, the Sox will go with Eduardo Rodriguez. It's been a while since we saw Rodriguez on the hill. he's missed all of last year with myocarditis. In 2019 he went 19-6 with 213 strikers and is 5-2 in his career against Baltimore.
Over on the Orioles' side, they beat Boston in their opening streak, but then couldn't find any luck against the Yankees with losses of 7-0 and 7-2 in the first pair. On Wednesday, Baltimore returned from 2-1 deficit to force extra innings and score a 4-3 win.
For the pitcher role beginning Thursday, Baltimore goes with Matt Harvey. Harvey scored 4.2 innings on his Orioles debut, scoring four hits in the process. That gives Harvey a 3.86 ERA after the lone start.
The Red Sox are 25-11 in their last 36 Thursday games and 19-39 in their last 58 against the AL East. Boston is 3-7 in their last 10 in game one of a series and the under is 4-1 in their last five Thursday games.
Meanwhile, the Orioles are 133-279 in their last 412 overall and 55-121 in their last 176 against the AL East. Baltimore is 13-38 in their last 51 Thursday games and 27-79 in their last 106 in game one of a series.
PICK: I'm going to stab Boston. Both teams have had mixed results so far, but this should be a pretty good run. The Red Sox have finally got their offensive on the Rays started a bit, and if Rodriguez can come in for a couple of good innings they should be in the best position to score a win. He will be a key member of the Boston pitching team this year, if all goes well.
