Welp. This should be the Red Sox preparing to finish a sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals but (waves hands) things happened.

Corey Kluber and Miles Mikolas are entering the night with ERAs/FIPS of 6.29/6.38 and 5.40/4.59, respectively, Neither off to a particularly strong start.

Masataka Yoshida is riding a 2 game hitting streak after his last streak was broken in Atlanta.

Kenley Jansen has given up 3 or more runs 21 times in his career. Only twice has he done so in back-to-back outings. The other was in 2021 with the Dodgers agains the San Francisco Giants on July 21 and 22. So hopefully there is no history to be made here.
