Boston Red Sox vs. Oakland A’s Preview

1. The A’s have the 2nd worst record in the American league.
2. The A’s have lost 5 straight games.
3. The Red Sox snapped their 3-game losing streak in their last game.

This season the A’s are 49 at home and the Red Sox are 7-8 on the road.

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

In their last games the A’s lost to the Seattle Mariners 4-3 and the Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3.

This is an AL match up of a couple of struggling teams, as the A’s are in a 5-game skid and the Red Sox have lost 5 of their last 7 games. Oakland is the home favorite in this game and they are finally back at home, as they have played 20 of their last 26 games on the road.

The Red Sox have not had much success in Oakland in the last few seasons, as they have lost 21 of their last 27 games there.

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

The A’s have the offense ranking 4th in the Majors in runs scored, but only rank 19th in team ERA. However, their offense has hit a snag totaling 13 runs in their 5-game losing streak.

Boston ranks 16th in runs scored and 29th in team ERA.

Rock Porcello takes the mound for the Red Sox tonight and in his last outing he had his best start of the season going 8 innings and not giving up any earned runs in a 2-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. You can see how the Boston staff is not getting it done, as Porcello leads the team in ERA at 4.38.

The Red Sox have won their last 3 games when Porcello has started, but he is 1-4 with a 5.40 ERA in 6 career starts at Oakland all when he was with the Detroit Tigers.

Scott Kazmir was really roughed up in his last start going 6 innings and giving up 6 earned runs in a 13-0 blowout loss to the Minnesota Twins. The A’s have lost 3 of their last 4 games he has started.

Kazmir has been solid at home as of late, as he has not given up an earned run in his last 14 innings pitched.

The A’s are 4-1 in Kazmir’s last 5 home starts vs. a team with a losing record

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

Kazmir may have to have a good start tonight, as the Oakland bullpen ranks dead last in the AL with an ERA of 5.07.
