Boston Red Sox Starting Pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez

As a result, Pedroia was injured and Machado was almost beaned by Matt Barnes. During that start, he allowed just a single run on six hits over six innings en route to his first win of the year.

Dylan Bundy takes the mound for the Orioles today. Tensions spilled all over again and Machado sounded off to the media after Sale threw behind him. He's only going to get better. The Red Sox are coming off a small brawl against the Yankees, and the last thing they need is another on-field scuffle. We've got some time to play catch up.

A two-time All-Star, Betts is off to a strong start this season, batting.353 with two home runs and 10 RBIs. The offense will be without Xander Bogaerts who remains on the DL with a foot injury, and Pedroia is shelved until sometime in May. The Orioles have been inconsistent at the plate, averaging 3.36 runs per game, ranking them 25th overall.

"Our offense is doing what it's doing, and our pitching and our defense is consistent".

Chris Tillman (0-2, 8.68 ERA) will get the ball rolling against Eduardo Rodriguez (0-0, 7.36 ERA) in today's series opener.

Saturday, April 14 at 1:05 PM TBA vs. His ERA is 1.06 while his WHIP is 1.00.

Yankees 8, Tigers 6: Aaron Hicks hit an inside-the-park home run in the second inning, then added a solo shot over the fence in the sixth to send visiting NY to the win over skidding Detroit.

Velazquez will be making his first start since he shut down the Rays to the tune of one run on five hits over 5 2/3 innings on April 1st. In his career, Bundy is 3-4 with a 5.01 ERA and 24 strikeouts against Boston.

But his first start was hardly the outing he or the club were looking for.

Gaethje also appeared to have Poirier fading after Round 2 by absorbing every combination his opponent could throw without taking a step backward.

Two days after a hit-by-pitch forced him to exit the game early, Ramirez returned to the lineup and went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and three RBI in the Sox' 10-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles yesterday.

Cobb signed a four-year contract worth $57 million on March 21, makes his O's debut. Bundy posted a solid 3.94 ERA against the Red Sox last season, and he has been outstanding in his three starts this season, plus the under is 5-1-1 in Bundy's last seven starts against the Red Sox. Chris Sale will start the finale and is 1-0 with a 1.06 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. He is 0-1 through three starts but has managed to get deep into games. He allowed five runs in five innings last season in Boston for the Rangers. The O's star shortstop is hitting.321 with six runs, three doubles, three homers and six RBI.

Cardinals 5, Reds 3: Yadier Molina homered and drove in three runs, leading St. Louis to a victory that deepened host Cincinnati's worst season-opening slump since 1955.

Craig Kimbrel has yet to give up a run this year.

The Orioles have lost four of their last five games SU while the Red Sox have won 12 of their last 13 SU.

Red Sox games have had an over/under record of 7-5-1 so far in 2018. Six home runs is completely unacceptable. Mookie Betts is 6 for 22 with four RBI's against Bundy, while Hanley Ramirez is 4 for 18, and Jackie Bradley 6 for 17.

I am taking the Red Sox on the run line in this one.

After narrowly avoiding the sweep against the Blue Jays, the Orioles will look to reel off a few notches in the win column against a red-hot Boston squad over the next four games at Fenway.
