Martinez homers twice in win

MLB Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Indians are 1-4 in their last five games versus the AL East. Cleveland is 1-7 in its last eight games overall.

Boston

The Red Sox are 18-8 in their last 26 games overall. Boston is 26-10 in the last 36 starts by Price.

Prediction:

Boston should be able to solve Plesac as he is a two-pitch pitcher and will likely need to develop a third offering to be effective as a starter at the MLB level. Price left his start in the first inning Saturday with a minor ailment, but is good to go three days later. Look for Price to baffle the slumping Cleveland bats and send the hosts to another win.
