Today’s matchup is between the Boston Red Sox (32-20) and the Houston Astros (28-24). The Red Sox have won 3 of their last 5 games & the Astros have won 1 of their last 5 games.

The Red Sox are starting Eduardo Rodriguez (LHP), on the mound who is 5-3 on the season pitching a 5.06 ERA, 3.52 FIP, .352 wOBA, K% of 26.2%, BB% of 5.3%, 86.7 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.40 WHIP in 48.0 innings pitched.

The Astros are starting Jose Urquidy (RHP), who is 3-2 on the season with a 3.22 ERA, 4.06 FIP, .287 wOBA, K% of 18.6%, BB% of 5.1%, 88.5 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.03 WHIP in 44.2 innings pitched.

The Red Sox are 5th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Astros are 29th.

On the hitting side, the Red Sox have a .332 wOBA and a .321 OBP. The Astros have a .330 wOBA and a .334 OBP. The Red Sox have 51 HRs this season while the Astros have 58 HRs.

The Astros have the slightly better starting pitcher but their relieving team leaves much to be desired. The Astros have a bit more HR Power as well but even so, I still like the Red Sox to win the game.
