Probable Pitcher: N/A (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
Arihara had tentatively lined up to start Saturday in Boston, but the Rangers are instead expected to promote a pitcher from the minors to enter the rotation that day.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox get here with a 65-68 record and have won their last 3 games. The team is averaging 4.50 runs per game. They're batting for .257 AVG, 589 runs scored in 1167 hits and 124 home runs, ranking #11 in offense in the league, behind the Milwaukee Brewers. Rafael Devers is leading the team with 25 home runs and 66 RBI, batting for .306 AVG.
Defensively they are allowing 4.91 runs per game and rank #25 in the league. Nick Pivetta leads the team with 9 wins recorded with a 4.40 ERA and 143 strikeouts.
Probable Pitcher: Brayan Bello (0-4, 7.27 ERA)
Bello will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Red Sox. Bello yielded three runs on five hits and three walks over four innings Monday, striking out two and taking a loss against the Twins. He hasn't faced the Rangers in his career.
Texas are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Boston.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Texas' last 5 games on the road.
Texas are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Boston.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Boston's last 6 games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Boston's last 7 games against Texas.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Boston's last 5 games at home.
The Rangers have now lost 6 games in a row and struggled offensively in the second game of the series scoring only 1 run but they might have better chances this time as the Red Sox will send Brayan Bello to the mound who has been pounded in all of his starts this season and is holding a terrible 7.27 ERA. The Rangers haven't confirmed their starting pitcher for this matchup but looks like they'll call a rookie and with the Red Sox offense on fire right now it will be hard to stop them. However this total is set I think this will be a high scoring game. Take the over.
