Game 92: Red Sox at Cubs

We’re back!

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Chicago Cubs David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

And we’re back! The Red Sox entered the All-Star Break hot while sweeping the Blue Jays and Athletics and taking two-out-of-three from the Texas Rangers. Now they at in Chicago for some interleague play against the Cubs.

Brayan Bello, appropriately, opens the second half for the Red Sox. With a 3.04 ERA / 3.77 FIP he’s been cruising since the beginning of June lasting almost 7 innings per start and allowing more than 2 runs just once.

He’s opposed by Kyle Hendricks who also sports a 3.04 ERA but with a 3.73 FIP. The veteran righty has seen his already low for the era strikeout rate dip even further this season but so far it’s been a bit of a bounce-back year for him anyway.

Your eyes aren’t wrong: Justin Turner is starting at second base tonight.

Masataka Yoshida fills in as the DH while Jarren Duran patrols left field.
