The Red Sox and Orioles will play game two of a three game series on Wednesday. Last night, the Orioles snapped a three game slide to beat the Red Sox 3-2 behind a two run homer from Manny Machado and the brilliant pitching of Chris Tillman. On Wednesday, the O’s will turn to 25 year old Kevin Gausman to try and take two of three from Boston. Gausman is yet to win a game in 10 starts this season. He’s lost three games but does hold a solid 3.45 ERA. Last Friday against the Blue Jays, he earned his sixth quality outing as he went six and third allowing two earned runs on eight hits. One of his three losses came against these Red Sox back on May 31st. In that game, Gausman threw six innings, gave up five runs and allowed three homers. His two starts in june have been very good. In his last two games, he has a 2.17 ERA, nine strikeouts, and just four walks. The Red Sox have four players who have hit Gausman pretty hard over his career, this could make it difficult for him to get into any sort of groove on Wednesday. On the road, he has an opposing slugging percentage of .441. The Red Sox can certainly hit for power, they have the highest slugging rate of any team in the majors at .483, more than 20 points higher than the second most. At home, David Ortiz has a slugging percentage along of .796. Tomorrow will definitely be a test for Gausman, he’ll need his best stuff to get by. Boston sends the veteran Steven Wright to the mound with hopes of tying this series and getting tied for first place in the division. Wright has been one of the most underrated pitchers this year. He has the lowest ERA (2.09) of any pitcher in the American League. At 31, Wright has just three years of MLB development and experience under his belt. But 2016 has been one for the books for Wright. In 12 starts, he’s 7-4 and has struck out 70. Back on May 30th, he faced the Orioles. He got the win in a complete game where he gave up just two runs. He’s thrown 82 innings this year and has thrown at least seven innings six times. In limited experience facing Wright, the Orioles have just three RBI’s in total off of him. Wednesday’s game should be low scoring due to the fact we’ll be seeing these two studs on the mound. I’ll go 3-1 Red Sox and give the edge to Wright in this one.
