Boston Red Sox vs Detroit Tigers Prediction 4-7-17
Boston comes into this series vs. Detroit on a series sweep versus Pittsburgh now sitting at 2-0 in this early 2017 MLB season. And if history repeats itself between these two, the road team will walk out the winner this afternoon. But, the flu is circulating around the Red Sox clubhouse. The latest victim was left Robbie Ross Jr.
The Red Sox will send knuckleballer Stephen Wright to the mound while the Tigers counter with right-hander Michael Fulmer. Wright went on to win a career-high 13 games in 2016 however endured the 9-8 loss versus Detroit last July. Which was at Fenway Park. In the 2016 MLB season, 32 year old Wright posted a 2.09 ERA on the road while allowing just one run in 13 1/3 innings during spring training.
We will see an adjusted bullpen for Detroit in this series since Matt Barnes has been placed on the bereavement list. It’s expected that right-hander Noe Ramirez will take his place, he was called up from Pawtucket. Boston also recalled infielder Marco Hernandez for this matchup taking Ross’ spot. It appears the Sox are going lefty-heavy for this series, who will see 3 right-handed pitchers and one lefty.
During the final stretch of the 2016 season, Fulmer started to struggle. This was after starting 12 games and picking up 9 wins during those stretch of starts. Last time Fulmer faced the Red Sox he was tagged for six runs losing 10-2 at home in August. Posting a high 6.08 ERA in the game.
It will be interesting to see how Fulmer handles the weather today, as he has no experience pitching in cold weather. He was throwing in the bullpen up in Chicago getting ready for this game, and he admitted it to be challenging.
In Detroit’s afternoon game yesterday they only collected four hits losing 11-2 and first baseman Miguel Cabrera started the season with his second straight 0-3 at the plate.
