We all knew the Red Sox would give way in the AL East, but their precipitous fall from grace has been as quick as Gov. Cuomo’s. They get Baltimore at Fenway Park this weekend to cure what ails.
The O’s Jorge Lopez, no relation to the comedian George Lopez but much funnier earlier this season, has been solid in his two August starts. Georgie (3-12, 5.75 ERA) has allowed only three runs over 12 innings to the heavy-hitting Yankees and Rays. The Sox and the city of Boston have been waiting for Chris Sale to return and he will make his first start since 2019. Sale’s pitch count will be monitored closely. Underdogs haven’t treated us well this week, but we will take the Orioles for 10 units.
Pirates/Brewers was rained out. They’ll play two on Saturday. Mitch Keller will go in the nightcap against Aaron Ashby (13.50 ERA). Sticking with the Pirates for 10 units. On hold at -615 mazeroskis.
