Boston Red Sox vs. Atlanta Braves Preview

1. The Red Sox snapped their 7-game losing streak with a win over the Braves in their last game.
2. These 2 teams split the last 2-game series in Boston.
3. The Red Sox rank 29th in the Majors in team ERA.

[dfads params=’groups=63744&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

This season the Braves are 15-14 at home and the Red Sox are 12-20 on the road.

Yesterday these 2 teams met in Boston with the Red Sox beating the Braves 9-4.

The Red Sox finally snapped their losing streak in their last game, but with their recent swoon they have dropped to the basement of the AL East 8 games back of the Tampa Bay Rays. They head to Atlanta and are the slight road underdog in the first game of this 2-game series.

[dfads params=’groups=10&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

In losing 7 straight the Red Sox were outscored 47-28 and overall their offense only ranks 20th in the Majors in runs scored.

The Braves are 4-6 in their last 10 games, but in the AL East they still only trail the New York Mets by 4.5 games.

Alex Wood has lost 2 straight starts where he has given up 8 earned runs in 11 innings. Before losing 2 straight the Braves had won their last 3 games with Wood getting the start.

Wood is 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA in 6 career interleague starts.

Joe Kelly is still in the Red Sox rotation, but for how long? He gave up 4 earned runs in 6 innings in his last start, which was a 13-10 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. He is 0-2 with a 7.61 ERA in his last 5 road starts. Boston has lost 4 of their last 5 games when Kelly has gotten the starting nod.

Like the Red Sox the Braves have struggled on the mound this season only ranking 26th in the Majors in team ERA, but they do rank 11th in runs scored.

[dfads params=’groups=63745&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

The Red Sox are 20-7 in their last 27 games facing the Braves and have won 6 of their last 7 games against them in Atlanta.
