Boston Red Sox vs. New York Mets. The Boston Red Sox are the MLB’s pick to win this game. The Red Sox have strong home performance (.290 BA,.356 OBP,.465 SLG, and.821 OPS in 48 games), and many people aren’t very confident in predicting Scherzer will have another strong start because of his recent tendency to hit too many home runs (eleven HR in his last eight starts). The Mets’ season batting line against left-handed pitchers was only 0.230/.307/.391/.699 points. Although Paxton may not be a household name, he is a seasoned veteran who held eight opponents to two or fewer runs this season. He is expected to make up for his poor performance in his previous start by having a much stronger start at home against the weak Mets lineup. Bet for Boston on Saturday at Fenway. According to the odds, the Boston Red Sox will triumph 6-4.
