Run Line Pick:
Boston sends Jake Peavy to mound today; the Red Sox hurler has been solid in 3 starts this season pitching 18 2/3 innings yielding 12 hits and only 4 earned runs. Peavy had only 1 start last season against the Orioles giving up 3 runs on 6 hits over 7 innings. The Orioles counter with Ubaldo Jimenez who hasn’t got off to a very good start this season. In 16 innings he’s given up 13 earned runs on 23 hits and 4 home runs. Jimenez lost 4-2 to the Red Sox in his season opener April 2 giving up 2 home runs and 4 runs in 6 innings. Boston’s bats haven’t supported Peavy so far this season leaving him winless in 3 but look for them to come alive today against a pitcher that they’ve had success against. Take the Boston Red Sox -1 (-116).
