Red Sox Ascending
You don’t just win seven straight games without strong all-around play. That’s what the Boston Red Sox have been benefitting from lately as they’re playing some of their best ball.
They are sending out Michael Wacha to the mound on Tuesday and he has been excellent all season with a 6-1 record and a 2.34 ERA.
Wacha has also registered a start earlier in the season against the Blue Jays, dominating them throughout six innings in a 7-1 wn.
He’s been lights out of late as he’s allowed a total of just five earned runs in his last six starts. If you bet online, the under might be worth a look.
Blue Jays Hoping For Repeat

He was the starting pitcher of that previous matchup against Wacha. He pitched five innings and allowed just one run.
June has been a great month for Stripling as he’s posted a 1.16 ERA while going 4-1. Opposing batters are hitting just .183 against him this month.
