The Oakland Athletics had shut out the Boston Red Sox in back-to-back games before taking a 6-3 loss on Wednesday. I like the A’s to bounce back here Thursday to deny Boston to split this series.
A’s left-hander Brett Anderson (1-0, 0.00 ERA) tossed six scoreless innings against the Halos in his season debut and is 6-4 behind a solid 3.48 ERA in 11 career starts against Boston.
The Red Sox turn to left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (0-1, 10.38 ERA) who owns a 2.33 ERA in four career starts against Oakland but was charged with all runs (five earned) in a 6-5 loss to the Mariners in his season debut.
Oakland has won six of the last eight meetings and is also 6-2 in Anderson’s last eight starts vs. Red Sox. I like the price we get on the home team in this matchup.
Free pick on Oakland Athletics.
