Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

I’ll lean toward the Sox. Probably not touching this one, though. Crawford has been okay recently, posting eight combined earned runs over his last three starts in 18.1 innings of work. Crawford is just 1-2 in that time, though. As for Rodriguez, he’s got nine earned runs in his last 9.0 innings total.

On Tuesday the Sox had a brief 2-0 lead in the second but that went away quickly. Boston’s pitching was rough, but there were a lot of holes on offense as well. It was an all-around ugly game. The Red Sox need a big turnaround for game three.
