BOSTON: The Red Sox have now won five straight games and are 4-0 in their last four games when they face a right-handed starter. They've won seven of 10 versus American League East rivals as well, and are 4-1 in their last five games after scoring five runs or more in their previous game. (Boston beat Baltimore 5-3 on Tuesday night thanks to an eighth-inning Mookie Betts two-run home run.)
BALTIMORE: The Orioles are still a tough team to beat at home despite last night's loss. They're 44-18 in their last 62 home games overall, are 6-1 in their last seven home games when they face a left-handed starter, and are 12-3 in their last 15 home games versus a team with a winning record.
OUR PICK: The Red Sox are just 1-5 in Price's last six starts and are winless at 0-5 in his last five road starts. They're 0-4 in his last four starts when their opponent allows five runs or more in their previous game and are 2-5 in Price's last seven starts versus a team with a winning record as well. The Orioles have been a decent bet coming off losses, going 5-2 in their last seven games following defeat.
