Notes On The Oakland Athletics
The Oakland Athletics were beaten by the Cleveland Guardians 6-3 on Sunday, their 14th loss in the past 16 games at any venue and their worst record in the AL West by far.
The A’s have scored only 33 runs in their past 12 games, posting a terrible .199/.262/.345 slash line. In that same time period, the A’s pitching staff has posted a dismal 5.56 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and .282 batting average against.
On Tuesday, right-hander Jared Koenig will make his second big-league start. The 28-year-old righty was charged with a loss in a hefty 13-2 defeat at the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on five hits and two walks.
Notes On The Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox just completed their ten-game road trip with an 8-2 record. This past Sunday, the Red Sox outlasted the Mariners 2-0 in Seattle to clinch a three-game series win and improve to 32-29 on the season. The Red Sox were in fourth place in the AL East on Monday, 12.5 games behind the powerful New York Yankees. They were 3.5 games behind Toronto and four behind Tampa Bay.
Overall, the Red Sox have hit 50 runs in their last 13 games. They’ve slashed just .224/.293/.361 during that period. The Boston staff’s performance has improved dramatically in recent weeks, with a 2.55 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over seven starts (28 outings).
Tuesday’s starter, Nick Pivetta, will face the Los Angeles Angels after a poor performance against them on Sunday. The 29-year-old righty struck out 11 batters in five innings while also allowing four earned runs on six hits and two walks while losing his outing.In his past three starts, Pivetta is 5-5 with a 3.78 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 12 starts (66.2 innings).

Red Sox Vs Oakland Prediction And Pick: Boston Red Sox-1.5
The Red Sox topped the Athletics 5-2 on June 5 at Oakland Coliseum in a three-game series. Over the previous several weeks, the Boston franchise has been in excellent form, so I am confident they will continue along the right path and defeat the spread against the A’s.
At Fenway Park, Jaron Madison will be in serious trouble. In addition, the Oakland bullpen is a total disaster in June, posting a 9.10 ERA, 5.94 FIP, and .384 BABIP.
Through 37 innings in June, the Red Sox bullpen has a 2.19 ERA, 2.73 FIP, .264 BABIP, and 0.24 HR/9. The A’s have just four hits in 42 at-bats against Nick Pivetta and might easily be shut down by the hosts.
I’m concerned about the totals, and I’m not particularly comfortable with the 9.5-run difference. Boston may score a lot of runs off Jared Koenig and his relievers, which could lead to a high total in this game. The over is my favorite Athletics vs. Red Sox betting pick.
