Game 1 Preview: Boston returns to Fenway Park to take on the Orioles
The (3-3) Red Sox play the (4-1) trending Orioles in game one of a two-game series tonight at Fenway Park.
Boston is currently struggling, whereas the Orioles are currently excelling. Baltimore sits as the AL East Leaders, two spots above the 3rd place Red Sox. Following Boston’s series loss against Detroit, they look to bounce back in this two-game series with the Baltimore Orioles.
Starter Matchup Preview
Pomeranz will make his first start of the season after being activated from the disabled list. Questions arise for the new pitcher, wondering if he will be able to stay robust pitching at Fenway.
On the other hand, Bundy, being the great pitcher he is, has a 1.29 ERA and allowed no walks in his first start with the Blue Jays earlier this season. There’s no guarantee Bundy will be on his game, although if he is along with the rest of the Orioles right-hand oriented lineup, the Red Sox will surely have a good battle on their hands tonight.
The Weather is looking to be in the mid 70’s in tonight’s Game 1 of the two-game series.
During game 1 tonight, change for the better must be made with the Red Sox bullpen. Pomeranz must be healthy if the Red Sox have any chance of pulling through.
