Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles
Josh Beckett 5-9 with 4.97 ERA will go for the Red Sox. He is coming off a bad game against Texas pitching 5 inning 8 runs 3 home runs losing 10-9 and complaining of back pain. Josh has pitched 4 non quality starts in a row and only one quality start in July. He will be opposed by Wei-Yin Chen 10-7 with 3.79 ERA starting for the Orioles. Coming off a non quality loss against KC lasting 4.2 inning giving up 7 runs and 2 homers throwing 86 pitches. However Chen is the Orioles top money pitcher who has allowed 3 runs or less 5 games before the collapse. He is very likely to bounce back. I would venture Beckett improving as well, but the trend is against Josh Beckett and the Red Sox. Going with the home team Baltimore and Under 8.5 for this match up.
