***2015 MLB BONUSES***
A night after a pitchers’ duel broke out in Baltimore, the Red Sox and Orioles are back at it for game 2 of the set between the two teams. Boston will look to bounce back after scrapping out just 5 hits and losing on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 7th that allowed the only run to score.
Baltimore will look to run their win streak to 3 games with Wei-Yin Chen on the hill. Chen will be opposed by the high paid, underperforming Rick Porcello for Boston.
Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles
The Red Sox offense has been so inconsistent this season, it’s really starting to become a mind game for them. Tuesday was just another episode in the inconsistency game as they manufactured just 5 hits and couldn’t solve the Baltimore pitching. They’ll send Rick Porcello to the mound to try and get this series evened up.
Porcello was a high priced free agent that signed for nearly 82 million dollars with Boston. His 4-5, 5.01 ERA was not what the front office imagined would be happening.
Porcello has lost 3 straight starts, but did show some signs of returning to old form against the Twins. Porcello was the tough luck loser going 8.0 innings allowing just 2 runs, but Boston couldn’t hit once again and the Red Sox fell 2-0.
Porcello faced Baltimore twice already this season, receiving a loss and no decision.
For Baltimore, they’re slowly putting together some wins. They’ve won 4 of 5 and trail by just 5.5 games in the AL East.
Baltimore will send out Wei-Yin Chen to try and make it 5 of 6 on Wednesday night.
Chen has been involved in some low scoring games, which in turn has led him to a lot of no decisions as he’s just not getting the run support. Chen went 6.1 innings last time against the Astros, allowing just 2 runs, but Baltimore couldn’t get him the victory.
Chen faced Boston on April 20th and was knocked around for 5 runs (0 earned). The defense let him down, but he was given the loss in a 7-1 route.
