Boston Red Sox vs Philadelphia Phillies 5/6/2023 Analysis, Predictions and Picks

On Saturday, May 6, 2023, at 7:15 PM ET, baseball fans will be treated to a showdown between the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, PA. The Red Sox are coming off a dominating performance against division rival Toronto and will bring a heightened sense of confidence to Philadelphia. Currently sitting four games above .500, the Sox are leading the tough AL East, ahead of the Yankees and Blue Jays. Their offense has been firing on all cylinders, hitting .274 (2nd) with a .808 OPS (3rd) and averaging 5.91 runs per game. They are also fifth in the league in home runs with 46 and steals with 20. Rafael Devers, the left fielder, has been a key player for Boston, leading the team in home runs (11) and RBI (31). Masataka Yoshida has been the club’s batting average (.317) and on-base percentage (.400) leader.

The Boston pitching staff has also been solid, with six solid starts and a 4.87 ERA (23rd) and 1.34 WHIP (20th). On Saturday, veteran pitcher Kluber, with 13 seasons of experience under his belt, will take the mound for the visiting team. Although he struggled midway through April against Tampa Bay and Minnesota, he has since recovered with strong performances against Baltimore (allowing only one earned run in six innings) and Toronto (allowing three earned runs in 5.1 innings). The stage is set for an exciting game between these two teams, and fans can’t wait to see who comes out on top.

  • The Boston Red Sox are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road against Philadelphia.
  • Boston is 14-5 SU in their last 19 games against an opponent in the National League East Division.
  • The total went OVER in 12 of Boston’s last 18 games played in May.

Boston Red Sox vs Philadelphia Phillies 5/6/2023 Analysis, Predictions and Picks

The Phillies are hoping to bounce back from their disappointing three-game series against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. While they would be satisfied with a series win against Boston, they may be facing the hot Red Sox at the wrong time. Currently, Philadelphia ranks 18th in runs scored per game with 4.28 and hits .266 (4th) with a .755 OPS. They were also 15th in home runs with 35 and 23rd in stolen bases with 18 in 2023. Kyle Schwarber, the center fielder and designated hitter, leads the team with seven home runs, while first baseman Alec Bohm has racked up 23 RBI. Brandon Marsh leads the team in batting average (.326) and on-base percentage (.413).

On the mound for the Phillies tomorrow at Citizens Bank Park will be left-handed pitcher Falter. He’s looking to end a four-start losing streak and secure his first victory of the 2023 season. Unfortunately, in all but one of his appearances, the 26-year-old has given up at least one home run. In his most recent start against Houston, he allowed a season-high eight hits, so he’ll need to bring his best stuff to the mound against the formidable Red Sox.

  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games at home against Boston.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 5 games with a team in the American League.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the Phillies’ last 5 games played in May.
