Red Sox vs. Orioles lineup: Can Ricky reign in the muck?

New, 5 comments

It’s a double pun.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Boston Red Sox Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox (30-14) look to slog past the Orioles (15-30) and the rain tonight behind Rick Porcello (5-1, 3.28 ERA) at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-network).

About tonight’s game: Porcello looks to do what Drew Pomeranz could not at give the Sox a fighting chance against the O’s and the mercurial Dylan Bundy (2-5, 4.53 ERA — see tweet below). The lineup is basically unchanged, except for Sandy Leon getting the start and batting eighth.

About last night’s game: Pomeranz blew another amazing Mookie Betts performance as the Sox lost 7-4. Read Matt’s recap here.

Forecast: Bad. Two-thirds chance of rain.

Today’s reading: BP Boston’s Cam Ellis tackles the not-yet-crisis-situation in the bullpen.

A good tweet about Bundy:
