The Boston Red Sox play host to the Atlanta Braves in the opener of an interleague two-game series at Fenway Park. The first two-game series between the two back in May saw a split in Atlanta, but this time, Atlanta arrives in this match with high hopes of picking up a 2-0 win over Boston. Both teams started the season with World Series aspirations, but only the Braves have been able to follow through with a 64-46 record.
Even though the Red Sox are sitting in the bottom of the American League East standings, they still have a decent chance of making it into the Wild Card, knowing that a strong push over the final few weeks is all they need. After winning 2 out of 3 over the Houston Astros last week, this group was unable to keep it going, losing 2 out of 3 to the Kansas City Royals, falling just under .500
Today Rich Hill is making his 17th start of the season for the Boston Red Sox. He is holding a 4-5 record with a 4.52 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP over 73.2 innings pitched while striking out 59. Hill has a very difficult task coming for this game as he is going up against one of the scariest offenses in the major leagues. He only has one start of late after returning from the injured list, so many questions remain
Coming off a recent shutout from his last time on the field, Charlie Morton takes the mound for the Atlanta Braves. He is carrying a 5-5 record with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 116.2 innings pitched while striking out 134. In 2 out of his last 3 starts, Morton had shutouts, which means that he could be finding his stride at the perfect time of the 2022 season.
