Why you should support the Orioles
Baltimore will send Tyler Wells to the mound. The 28-year-old right-hander is 0-1 on the season, but he enters Wednesday’s game with a 2.70 ERA and an impressive 0.686 WR. Wells also has a 2.57 ERA over his career 14 innings against the Red Sox and the current Boston hitters only have a .513 career OPS against him.
The Orioles also used the new runner-friendly rules to their advantage, stealing 25 bases over the course of their first 23 games (second in the American League). Baltimore’s team OPS of .753 is also fourth in the AL. See who you can support at SportsLine.
Why you should support the Red Sox
Boston counters with Tanner Houck (3-0, 4.29 ERA) on the mound. The former first round pick had 20 starts in his first 53 appearances and had as many as eight saves a season ago. However, he earned his way into the rotation full-time this offseason and has greatly outperformed his first four starts, allowing no more than three earned runs in each appearance and striking out 22 in 21 innings.
Meanwhile, Rafael Devers has carried the team offensively. The two-time All-Star leads the American League with nine home runs and also has 24 RBI in 25 games with an .890 OPS on the season. Boston’s 33 home runs as a team ranks second in the AL. See who you can support at SportsLine.
