They only scored four runs in the series against LA, but they recovered with a win on Friday. The Red Sox are 5-5 in their last ten games.

The Red Sox relievers have a combined save percentage of 72.2% after 43 chances to preserve the game. This season, 34 baserunners that bullpen pitchers acquired advanced 47.1% of the way to home plate. The Red Sox bullpen pitchers entered the game 22 times with runners on and made 33 outings in high-stakes situations. The Red Sox used 155 relievers on the field this season. This season, the relievers have 25 holds, which places them 21st in MLB. This season, they had 13 saves, but only five of their 18 chances led to a save.

Boston Red Sox vs Arizona Diamondbacks 5/28/2023 Analysis, Tips and Picks

Jarren Duran is experiencing a breakout season unnoticed. The 26-year-old outfielder, who had a difficult year last year, was one of the Red Sox’s best players this year, hitting.300 with 19 RBIs and a.837 OPS. Duran lost his mojo with only three RBIs in his final ten games. Boston is fourth in the league with 5.28 runs scored on average per game. With a 4.76 team ERA, the pitching staff is ranked 25th nationally. In the NL West, the Arizona Diamondbacks are ranked second.

Merrill Kelly will be playing on the rubber in the last contest of the series.

With a 2.88 ERA this month, a 2.98 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, a 5-3 record, and 57.1 innings worked, the seasoned pitcher has the metrics of an ace. Kelly only ever faced the Red Sox once, but it was a successful outing as he limited them to just one run over the course of eight innings.

The Diamondbacks continue to shine. They won four straight series, with victories over the Giants and most recently, two out of three games in Philadelphia before to this series, serving as high points. Their offensive played a key role in several of their triumphs. They trail the Dodgers by just 1.5 games and rank in the top 10 in key hitting categories.

Several Diamondbacks players have at least 20 RBIs, including Ketel Marte. The second baseman, who is 29 years old, has 20 RBIs and a respectable.800 OPS for the year after hitting.307 and.848 this month. On Friday, Marte had trouble, going 0 for 4. Arizona is now ninth in the league with a good 5.08 runs per game average. With a 4.54 team ERA, the pitching staff is ranked 22nd overall.

On 56 occasions when there were runners on base and 55 times when there were high-stakes scenarios, their bullpen relievers entered the game. Currently, the Diamondbacks have 57 chances to make saves, 11 missed opportunities, and 32 holds. This season, they employed 171 relievers, placing 26th in MLB with a save percentage of 54.2%. Arizona sent relievers to the mound for 24 chances to preserve a game, and they managed 13 saves.

  • Arizona is 17-9 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Diamondbacks’ last five games.

Boston Red Sox vs Arizona Diamondbacks. The MLB pick for this game is the Arizona Diamondbacks. The ninth and final game of a protracted road trip for the Boston Red Sox is under underway. They’ve won just twice in their previous six games, which is a problem. The Arizona Diamondbacks play in harmony. They had a 6-3 record after nine games on the road before to this series, which included a series win over the Phillies. Tanner Houck, a Red Sox starter, had a respectable April, but as seen by his dreadful 5.56 ERA this month, things were completely different. Six of Boston’s past seven games saw four runs or fewer, which suggests a hitting slump.

The Diamondbacks’ starting pitcher Merrill Kelly continued to dominate, allowing no more than two earned runs in four of his previous five appearances. In four of the five decisions, the Diamondbacks won. It is expected that the Arizona Diamondbacks will triumph 7-3.
