Game 74: Red Sox at Twins

Johnny 5 is alive!

The Red Sox offense has looked alive for the first time in a while. And last night they roughed up yet another pitcher. Pablo Lopez is no slouch and neither is tonight’s Twin: Bailey Ober.

Ober may be out pitching his FIP (3.54) compared to his ERA (2.65) but those are both numbers the Boston rotation would welcome. He strikes out about a batter per inning and is stingy with the walks.

Kutter Crawford is looking to bounce back after a relatively disappointing start against the Colorado Rockies last time out. Luckily for him, the Twins also aren’t a powerful offense so he’s in position to do well. If he can execute. With Tanner Houck sidelined the opportunity or more starts is in his control.
