Boston Red Sox at San Diego Padres MLB Pick – August 25th

It does feel great to run good! Another winner was picked up by us every evening, our ninth triumph in out past eleven championships, when that the Boston Red Sox were endorsed by us on the street. I felt that even though the Red Sox were small favorites (-119) they were undervalued. The public will put much focus on the pitching matchup when assessing a game, and the hate Nathan Eovaldi, for Red Sox newcomer, looked a little intense was the protagonist of the Red Sox championship run last year.
And Padres rookie while he’d looked decent is just in his second year at the big leagues, and now I believed that he was likely to receive a rude awaking against this Red Sox lineup. So, I laid a tiny wood and expected Boston to find a way. And that’s exactly what happened.
Boston jumped on Lamet early and regularly, as he got tagged for four runs in the games first four innings. On the night, he lasted only five innings and picked up a no-decision. And he is being used more like an opener now compared to a beginner while Nathan Eovaldi once more seemed shaky, along with the Red Sox were fast to pull him.
This game hit on the ninth inning tied up in four runs apiece, and Boston was able to score a series on celebrity closer Kirby Yates to take the lead from the games closing frame. Boston left the bases loaded in the ninth, so it might have been worse to Yates. Brandon Workman pitched a perfect bottom of the ninth for Boston and came in, and we picked up the win.
The win was the Oakland Athletics along with a significant one as they did manage to make up some ground around the Tampa Bay Rays, who lost last night. Boston is just six matches back and closing of the 2nd card as the year winds down. For the bet of today, we’ll stay here at San Diego, as the Red Sox and Padres wrapping up the show.
Even the San Diego Padres host. The Red Sox would really like to pick up tonight to the sweep at the series finale and have outscored the Padres. As they desperately try to battle their way back to the wild card chase at the American 28, boston has won seven out of its last nine games. For the Padres, they’ve dropped eight out of their last eleven matches, along with the lineup looks way without superstar rookie Fernando Tatis Jr on the field out of sorts.
Starting now for the Red Sox is Brian Johnson (1-2 6.58 ERA), and also for the Padres it’s Joey Lucchesi (8-7 4.20 ERA). The game is placed at nine runs. The Padres have been all -113 favorites. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 PM PST from PETCO Park in San Diego.
Brian Johnson has not been really good this season for your Boston Red Sox. He’s been used between the bullpen and the starting rotation, which makes fifteen looks. His ERA of all 6.59 definitely leaves something to be wanted. However, while you take a look at Johnson’s results, it was one poor outing that’s slowing down his stats.
On April 5thhe got blasted for seven runs in only over one inning of work. After that game, he had been shut down with knee inflammation and didn’t pitch again for months. With restricted usage since thenhe has not had enough innings to wash that tough patch out of his results. That does not mean he’s been more average, although great besides this than dreadful. The former first round pick will be used more very similar to Eovaldi, and they will be fast to pull him from the game, if he fights.
Joey Lucchesi was hot and cold this year for San Diego. At times he seems excellent, other times, not too much. Right now, he’s looking quite fair as from the month of August he 1-2 with a 4.57 ERA in four starts. And it may be worse for Lucchesi since he has nine walks this month and has done a great job of working into and back from jams.
1 thing that has been constant for Lucchesi this year is that when he’s still on the mound, the Padres tend to eliminate a lot. The Padres have lost nine from the past twelve begins, and they are when Lucchesi starts.
This is another number that is terrible. Yeah, Brian Johnson has been weak this season. However, he’s been somewhat better since returning from injury, and if he’s ever going to seem great, it will be tonight against a Padres team that can’t reach the ball. And we saw the Red Sox are keeping their starters and are enjoying playoff-style baseball. If Johnson struggles early, expect him to have pulled ahead of the Padres may do actual damage.
When you look at Joey Lucchesi, isn’t not like he is a few world-beater. The guy is averaging only over one winning a conclusion a month. Yeah, he’s looked ok against the likes of Seattle Mariners and the flying Tampa Bay Rays.
However, when he has faced teams which could hit the ball like this Red Sox team has, he has not been great. He’s confronted the Dodgers two and has since given up a joint seven earned runs. And against the Cubs he has blasted for six runs. I believe Boston finds out a way to place upward multiple runs on the plank against Lucchesi today.
This series has been mastered by Even the Red Sox thus far. They came as the far superior team, and it has shown in both these games. Yeah, perhaps you are able to give a small nod to Lucchesi over Johnson on the mound, but that isn’t likely to frighten me off the fact I get to back the defending world champs, that are on fire at this time, getting dog cash against an out of contention Padres team.
I have preached it all season long, quit making every one your bets based on just the starting pitching matchup! Yes, the starting pitching matchup matters, a whole good deal. But where the obviously talented team is becoming dog cash, when you find a number, it must be exploited by you. And that’s precisely what we will do now. Give the Boston Red Sox today as they finish the sweep of the Padres off in sunny San Diego to me!
