MLB FREE PICK: Take Boston. According to latest MLB trends, the Red Sox are 4-0 in Buchholz's last four home starts versus the Tigers and 6-1 in his last seven starts overall versus Boston. The Tigers are also 15-36 in their last 51 games in Boston, 2-5 in their last seven meetings overall with the Sox, and 1-4 in Scherzer's last five road starts against Bean Town. The Red Sox are also 28-13 in their last 41 games overall, 8-2 in Buchholz's last 10 home starts and 6-1 in his last seven starts versus a team with a winning record. The Tigers haven't gotten much going offensively in this series outside of Game 4 when Jim Leyland initially made the changes to his lineup. They haven't gotten much of anything out of Prince Fielder and unless he starts driving in some runs, Detroit will be at home watching Boston and St. Louis next week. We don't see Fielder getting into a groove tonight versus Buchholz.
