The Red Sox are starting Nick Pivetta (RHP), on the mound who is 6-0 on the season pitching a 3.86 ERA, 3.40 FIP, .300 wOBA, K% of 26.3%, BB% of 11.6%, 89.2 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.27 WHIP in 53.2 innings pitched.

The Astros are starting Framber Valdez (LHP), who is 0-0 on the season with a 2.25 ERA, 6.62 FIP, .280 wOBA, K% of 22.2%, BB% of 11.1%, 88.6 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.00 WHIP in 4.0 innings pitched.

Not much of a sample size to go off with Framber Valdez's 4 innings pitched but Nick Pivetta is a solid pitcher. Close to a 4 ERA being 6-0 is a bit lucky though but it goes to show how well the batting & relievers have been for the Red Sox. That said, I'll take the Red Sox to win!
