This game will end the third series between the two division belligerents. The Red Sox have dominated the rivalry this season sweeping a three-game series in Boston in mid-April and then taking three of four contests three weeks ago. In fact, the Red Sox have won eleven of the last twelve contests against the Orioles including a 6-4 win in the second game of their three-game series back on Tuesday. The Red Sox has now won 7 straight games in Baltimore.
The Red Sox, who started a nine-game road trip on Tuesday, enter this affair as a -280 road favorite, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total sitting on 8.5 runs. LH Chris Sale (5-4, 2.83 ERA) will attempt to snap a three-game losing streak as he takes his turn for the Red Sox while RH Miguel Castro (1-2, 2.84 ERA) and RH Yefry Ramirez (0-0, 0.00) are the leading candidates to replace Andrew Cashner for Wednesday’s game.
After allowing 10 combined runs on 11 hits in 10 1/3 innings in the previous 2 starts before his last trip to the mound, Sale threw one of his better games in his last outing despite a loss. The 29-year old allowed a run across 6 hits with a walk and 10 strikeouts in 8 innings in a 1-0 defeat to the White Sox on Friday. The Floridian, who drew a no-decision in his lone start against Baltimore this year, is 5-2 with a 2.73 ERA in 9-career starts against the Orioles.
If Castro gets the call in Wednesday’s tilt, this will be his second career start for the Orioles. The 23-year old has been spot on his last eleven appearances as a reliever in which he recorded a 1-1 dossier along with an impressive 0.98 ERA during that stretch. The Dominican Republic native is 0-2 with a 4.15 ERA in six-career games as a reliever against Boston. Ramirez never played in the majors and is 3-4 with a 4.33 ERA in the minors this year.
