The Cleveland Indians head to Fenway to take on the Boston Red Sox. Cleveland has been on a decent run of late going 7-3 in their last 10 games putting them 7.5 games back of a wildcard spot in the AL. Boston comes into this game after splitting their 4 game series against Tampa Bay. They currently sit in the 2nd wild card spot behind the Yankees in the AL. Both teams need to start picking up some wins, Cleveland if they want to make the playoffs, and Boston to further secure their hold on a wild cad spot.
Cal Quantrill (4-2, 2.93 ERA) will be called upon to take on the Boston Red Sox. This season he has a 1.21 WHIP and 4.65 XFIP. He comes into this game with a 19.7% strikeout rate, accompanied by a 8.1% walk rate. After having some rough outtings this year Quantrill has turned it around in a big, big way. He comes into this game having 8 quality starts in his last 10 outtings, allowing only 12 ER's in that same span. His last start came against this same Red Sox team where he went 7 innings, striking out 6, while allowing 1 ER. He has simply been able to get the job done when he's been called upon in the last 2 months and he will look to do it again against the Red Sox.
Nathan Eovaldi (10-8, 3.71 ERA) will toe the rubber for the Red Sox when they take on the Indians. He enters this game with a 1.17 WHIP and 3.80 XFIP. This season Eovaldi has a 24.4% strikeout rate, paired with a low 4.4% walk rate. Eovaldi has had an up and down season so far, logging 2 quality starts in his last 4 outtings. His last start was against this same Indians team where he pitched 5.1 innings, striking out 7 hitters, while allowing 2 ER's. He will look to have a repeat of that performance at home tonight.
Both these starting pitchers have been good over the course of the season, and I will look for both thei recent forms to continue in this one.
PICK: Under 8.5, Indians ML ( -105, +150)
