Boston hosts Baltimore for the first game of their quick two-game series on Tuesday night at Fenway Park. The Orioles saw their undefeated streak end with a loss to the Yankees on Sunday. As for the Red Sox, their season hasn't been going as well after dealing with flu issues and people leaving on bereavement throughout the first week. They'll hope to get things patched together to attempt at grabbing a few games from the AL East leaders. Boston has won four straight meetings against Baltimore. First pitch is at 7:10 PM Eastern time and the game can be seen on MLB.tv, MASN2, and NESN.

Orioles (4-1 overall, 3-2 O/U, 0-0 away, 1st AL East)

Baltimore wasted a good outing with Wade Miley going five innings and giving up just one hit. While he did walk seven batters and that boosted his pitch total very high, he struck out five and didn't give up a run. However, it was the bullpen that gave up seven more runs in the contest. Darren O'Day was knocked with the loss after giving up four earned runs himself. Right fielder Mark Trumbo (.263 avg) had two hits on the day and brought in an RBI. First baseman Chris Davis (.333 avg) also had two hits on the day, but didn't bring in a run and struck out once.

Starting pitcher Dylan Bundy will get the nod for the Orioles on the mound. Last time out against the Blue Jays he got the victory in seven innings.

He gave up just one earned run on four hits and recorded eight strikeouts with zero walks. That one run was the only score the team gave up in an eventual 3-1 victory.

Red Sox (3-3 overall, 2-4 O/U, 2-0 home, 3rd AL East)

Boston comes into the series with a .500 record, and it could have been a lot worse as the batting order and their pitching has been decimated with injuries.

Chris Sale picked up the loss last time out despite pitching in 7.2 innings and coughing up just two earned runs on five hits. He struck out 10 while just recording one base on balls, but it wasn't enough for the meager Red Sox offense. They had just four hits on the day and struck out seven times. First baseman Mitch Moreland (.333 avg) went 3-for-4 on his at-bats and accounted for a run.

Left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz will get his debut start of 2017. With San Diego and Boston last year, he went 8-7 as a starter with a 2.47 ERA. He had a ratio of 41 walks to 115 strikeouts, the best by far in his career.

Betting on Orioles and Red Sox
