Saturday's game saw Eduardo Rodriguez throw 7 2/3 shutout innings to get the win, allowing three hits and striking out six. Xander Bogaerts went 1-for-3 with a double, two runs and two walks. Mitch Moreland was 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs. Christian Vazquez finished 2-for-4. Robert Stephenson allowed four runs (two earned) in six innings to take the loss.

Bet on Red Sox vs. Reds

Fister has strugged mightily recently, while Stephens is still a bit of an unknown commodity at the MLB level. The Red Sox hitters have yet to see Stephens and that could be an advantage for the rookie. Plus the Reds have the bats to keep Fister's struggles going.
