Coming off a successful homestand the Red Sox are welcomed to Wisconsin by the Milwaukee Brewers. The 14-5 Brewers look to continue their division-leading ways over the .500 Sox but after a few solid pitching performances Boston will try once more to get into winning record territory.

Nick Pivetta allowed just 1 earned run in his first 10 innings of the year before the Los Angeles Angels rocked him for 6 in his next start. Over 14 innings this year Pivetta has a 16:8 strikeout to walk rate while allowing 11 hits and 3 home runs. He’ll face a Brewers team that has a .776 OPS against righties as opposed to a .601 mark against southpaws.

Pivetta is opposed by Freddy Peralta, who also throws with his right hand. Sure is nice to have a run of righties after that parade of left-handed starters last week.

After impressive outings by Chris Sale, Tanner Houck, and Garrett Whitlock can Nick Pivetta join them with the run of success?
