Cincinnati Reds vs Boston Red Sox 6/1/2023 Analysis, Tips and Picks

MLB action between the Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox will take place at Fenway Park, Massachusetts, on Thursday, June 1, 2023, at 7:10 PM ET. The Cincinnati Reds climbed to 25-29 overall with a hard-fought victory at Fenway Park on Tuesday, extending their winning streak to four games. After sweeping a three-game road series against the Chicago Cubs, the Reds came dangerously close to blowing a six-run advantage in the bottom of the ninth inning. Boston scored five runs thanks to Eduardo Salazar, but Alexis Diaz closed the game and recorded his 13th save of 2023. In the NL Central, the Cincinnati Reds are third.

In the previous seven days and 192 at-bats, the Reds’ hitting line improved to.333/.398/.551 with four home runs and 19 extra-base hits. Jonathan India hit two of the four home runs, while Spencer Steer went 9 for 22 with three. Hunter Greene will take the field at Fenway Park on Thursday. In 56 innings over 11 starts this season, the 23-year-old right-hander has a 1-4 record, a 4.18 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and an 80/22 K/BBB ratio. Greene recently achieved his first triumph of 2023. He tossed six innings of no-hit ball while striking out 11 hitters in a 9-0 rout of the Cubs on Friday. He forfeited some free passes. Greene struggled in his first four starts in May, pitching 22 innings and allowing an alarming 17 earned runs.

The Reds employed 191 bullpen pitchers throughout the season. In the current season, 108 runners were sent to the relievers; 32.4% made it to the plate. This season, they have made 16 saves, but 8 of their 24 chances have led to a save. The Reds’ bullpen pitchers began the game with a 66.7% save percentage and 51 opportunities to preserve runs. With 25 holds this season, the bullpen is ranked 25th in the league. The Reds’ starting pitchers faced high-stakes situations 69 times and games with runners on base 75 times.

  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Cincinnati’s last 10 games against an opponent in the American League East Division.

The Sawx came up just short after scoring five runs in the bottom of the ninth when relief pitcher Joely Rodriguez allowed five earned runs in just a few outs. Following their sixth defeat in their previous eight games, the Red Sox were in last place in the AL East on Wednesday. In the AL East, the Boston Red Sox are ranked fifth.

The Sawx had 146 at-bats over the preceding seven days and hit.288/.350/.425 with 13 extra-base hits and just two home runs. The 29-year-old rookie Masataka Yoshida hit seven out of fifteen times during that span, raising his season average to.313/.389/.486 with a 135 OPS+. On Thursday, a 34-year-old southpaw named Chris Sale will make his debut. He has a 5-2 record, a 4.72 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a 65/14 K/BB ratio in 10 starts (55. 1 IP). Sale performed admirably in his past five starts, allowing only eight earned runs on 20 hits and four walks over 32.1 innings. Sale beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-2 on Friday after pitching five innings of one-run, four-hit ball. He is in the 79th and 64th percentiles in predicted batting average and slugging percentage, respectively.

Boston requested relievers to enter the game in 19 save situations, and they succeeded with 14 saves. They used 163 bullpen relievers this season, and as a result, they are currently fourth in the league in save percentage. With runners on base 23 times and in high-stakes situations 36 times, their relievers entered the game. The pitchers in the Boston bullpen had a total of 36 inherited runners. The success rate for creating runs was 44.4%. There are 27 holds, 46 save opportunities, and 5 failed saves for the Red Sox.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 7 of Boston’s last 8 games at home against Cincinnati.
  • Boston is 2-4 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the National League.
  • The Celtics are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the NL Central Division.

Cincinnati Reds vs Boston Red Sox. The MLB pick for this game is the Boston Red Sox. The Reds believe they will struggle against Chris Sale despite their strong 167 wRC+ and.407 BABIP against left-handed pitchers over the last several weeks. Only two players on this Cincinnati club had ever faced Sale, a left-handed pitcher from Boston who had just pitched at a high level. Sale has only allowed three runs in his previous three home starts (20.1 innings thrown). The Red Sox had a miserable 66 wRC+ and.614 OPS in the previous two weeks versus right-handed pitching; maybe, things will get better soon. Boston has won Sale’s past four races. The expected final score is 7-3 in favor of Boston.
