MLB Game Day Preview – Red Sox @ Tigers
The Red Sox (29-22) have been carving up everyone in their path as they have won four straight games by a combined 38-8 score.
Boston sends RHP Clay Buchholz, (4-3, 3.30 ERA) to the hill for tonight’s match-up. Buchholz has been almost untouchable in his last three starts, compiling a 3-0 record with a 1.64 ERA while holding his opponents to a meager .195 batting average.
Detroit (25-25) started the month of May like a house on fire but have cooled considerably. In the first half of May, the Tigers went 10-3 but they have now dropped seven of their last nine games.
The Tigers have recalled Andrew Oliver (0-0) from Triple-A Toledo and he will make his first start of the 2011 MLB season tonight.
Oliver was battered in five starts last season as he went 0-4 with a 7.36 ERA. The 6’ 3’ lefty gave up 26 hits and 22 runs in 22 innings pitched during his first stint in majors from June 25 through July 18, 2010.
Boston vs. Detroit Betting Lines – MLB Free Pick
Tonight we feature betting lines for the Tigers vs. Boston from the JustBet.com online sportsbook.
It’s a good time to be a Boston sports fan. The Bruins are headed to the Stanley Cup Final and the Red Sox are the hottest team in the American League.
While Oliver has been impressive for the Mud Hens in Toledo, this is the Major League Baseball and the Boston hitters have been ripping the cover of the baseball.
Adrian Gonzalez (.338 BA) has hit safely in eight straight contests while Carl Crawford has 15 hits in his last 37 plate appearances for the BoSox.
One has to wonder why the Tigers would recall their young talent and send him out against such a hot hitting team. We don’t see the result being very positive today.
