TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASEBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH
#929 BOSTON with Eovaldi (-145) over Seattle with Anderson at 10:10 PM EST
In a bad mood off back-to-back one run losses to the Mariners and White Sox, the Red Sox will bring their A-Game to T-Mobile Park on Tuesday night. Even though they grabbed the dub yesterday, the M’s have slipped in four of their last seven overall and this is going to be a tough matchup for manager Scott Servais and his crew.
Hitting the hill for the BoSox will be right-hander Nathan Eovaldi. Since getting pounded at Toronto on August 6th, No. 17 has been on fire in his last six performances allowing just eight earned runs and 29 hits in 37.2 innings of work. Eovaldi has fanned 47 and walked six on his way to a 1-1 tally and a 1.91 ERA. Overall, with 28 starts in the books, Nathan has been incredibly consistent this season allowing only 65 earned runs and 159 hits in 163.2 frames. That’s good enough for a 10-8 record and a strong 3.57 ERA.
Southpaw Tyler Anderson will counter for the home team. In his last four starts against the Astros, Diamondbacks, Royals, and Houston (again), No. 31 was smacked for 12 earned runs and 27 hits in 23.0 innings. Anderson fanned 19 and walked five on his way to an 0-1 mark with a 4.66 ERA. On the year, Tyler has made a grand total of 18 starts for the M’s and been roasted for 69 earned runs and 146 hits in 148.0 frames. That shakes down to a dismal 6-9 mark and a 4.20 ERA.
There are a couple of solid trends that support this wager. Boston has tasted victory in 57 of its last 94 under the lights and five of its last eight in this series.
With a 9.0-game deficit in the AL East standings, the Red Sox know their only ticket to October baseball comes via the American League Wild Card. Off the two losses, the Boys from Beantown will finally get it right. Take Boston with Eovaldi. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
