Free MLB Prediction
Steven Wright had a great last outing striking out 9 in 8 innings of work giving up 1 earned run in a 2-1 win over the New York Yankees. The Red Sox have won their last 2 games with him on the hill. Justin Nicolino was shelled in his last start giving up 5 earned runs in 4 innings in a 7-1 loss to the L.A. Dodgers.
The Red Sox have the offense, which they will show in the Sunshine State taking Game 1 on the road.
