Red Sox keep rolling with sweep of O's

Red Sox keep rolling with sweep of O's

Brian Johnson had been scheduled to start Monday's game. He is 2-1 with a 3.57 ERA in six games (three starts) at Fenway and 3-4 with a 5.01 ERA lifetime against Boston. Sale recorded 308 strikeouts over 214 innings a year ago (32 starts), while finishing the season 17-8 overall with a 2.90 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP. He allowed eight runs (seven earned) on 10 hits - including two homers - and a walk in 3 2/3 innings. He has allowed seven runs (five earned) in 12 career innings against the Red Sox.

Christian Vazquez has been almost impossible for Cobb to get out, going 8-for-11 (.727) against him, while J.D. Martinez is 4-for-8 (.500) and Mookie Betts 6-for-20 (.300) with a home run and four RBIs. But for fans of the Orioles, after witnessing four years of Ubaldo Jimenez, of course, they're skeptical.

Adam Jones hit a sacrifice fly in the first and Manny Machado had a two-run double in the seventh. The Reds have the worst record in the majors at 2-11. The Orioles are scuffling at the plate, averaging only 3.33 runs, ranking them down at 24th overall.

This could be a good pitching matchup as Sale should have a good start against a poor lineup and Bundy has looked strong in his three starts. Another loss against St. Louis would give Cincinnati its worst start to a season since 1931, when it opened 2-17.

Cobb, who was 12-10 with a 3.50 ERA for the Tampa Bay Rays last season, was optioned to Double-A Bowie to start the season but pitched four simulated games in Sarasota, Fla. He limited the Marlins to one run in six innings in his lone start this season back on April 2nd. Currently, 65% of the wagers are going on the Red Sox at home today.

Right fielder Mookie Betts and first baseman Hanley Ramirez have led the Red Sox hitters this year. Tzu-Wei Lin's RBI double made it 3-1.

Weather has not been kind to Major League Baseball so far this season. A significant portion of the chilled Saturday afternoon crowd headed for shelter early in this one, with Boston's latest victory secured long before Marcus Walden delivered the game's final pitch in the top of the ninth. We've got some time to play catch up.

Heath Hembree (2-0) worked two innings of scoreless relief.

One year after finishing last in the American League in home runs, the Red Sox are finding the range. On the other hand, the Red Sox have netted 7.3 units and are 6-6 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher.

Several hours after Saturday's game at Target Field was postponed, the Twins said Sunday's game was off, too.

J.D. Martinez deposited a solo home run into the Boston bullpen in the third, making it 4-0, and the Red Sox doubled the cushion with four more runs in the fourth.
