Red Sox rally after blowing lead

Boston blew a 4-1 lead in the eighth inning last night at home as Miami scored five runs, but eventually earned an 8-7 walk-off victory. J.D. Martinez scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth on a throwing error after a fielder's choice grounder off the bat of Eduardo Nunez. Mookie Betts helped pace the Red Sox offense by going 1-for-3 with three walks and a run. Martinez was 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs. Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI. Nunez finished 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored. Ian Kinsler was 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI. Jackie Bradley Jr. was 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs and an RBI. Craig Kimbrel picked up the win in relief as he allowed one earned run on one hit with one strikeout and two walks in an inning of work.

Marlins hit three HRs in loss

Rafael Ortega went 2-for-5 with two RBIs in Tuesday's loss at the Red Sox. Brian Anderson finished 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run. J.T. Realmuto ended the contest 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs. Starlin Castro finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a triple and a walk. Isaac Galloway hit a solo home run in five at-bats. Drew Steckenrider took the loss in relief as he surrendered one earned run on two hits in two-thirds of an inning.

Trevor Richards (3-7, 4.23 ERA) will start today for Miami, while David Price (14-6, 3.50) will go for Boston.

MLB Betting Trends

Miami

The Marlins are 7-19 in their last 26 games. Miami is 25-55 in its last 80 road games.

Boston

The Red Sox are 22-5 in their last 27 Wednesday games. Boston is 43-13 in its last 56 interleague games.

Prediction:

Yesterday saw the Marlins show plenty of fight, but today's pitching matchup is more lopsided and the Red Sox offense is a juggernaut. As long as Price goes deep into the game to help out a weary Boston bullpen, the hosts should be in perfectly good shape to roll today.
