Red Sox Look to Snap 7 Game Losing Streak with Game Against Tigers Thursday Afternoon
Maybe the Red Sox are just getting us ready for a repeat of 2018, and wouldn't that be great? In 2018 the Red Sox went 1-6-1 in games from March 3rd through 11th before winning 14 of their remaining 15 Spring Training games en route to a World Series Championship!
The Red Sox have lost 7 in a row, after losing to the Twin 9-5 on Wednesday. Despite the loss there was good news for the Red Sox. Nathan Eovaldi made his Spring Training debut, starting the game and throwing 3 strong innings. He threw 41 pitches, 24 of which were strikes. He walked 1, struck out 1 and allowed 1 hit, a solo homer.
Blake Swihart doubled twice in the game, driving in 2 runs. In 7 games this Spring, Swihart is hitting .412, 7-17 with 3 doubles, 3 runs scored and 5 runs batted in. His .444 on base percentage leads the Red Sox (minimum 10 plate appearances).
Eduardo Rodriguez is scheduled to make his 4th start of the day at 1PM. Last Saturday, the 9th in his start against the New York Mets, he allowed just 1 earned run in 4 innings.
Heath Hembree is scheduled to make his 2019 Spring debut. Last year he appeared in 67 games for the Red Sox.
You can hear today's game, and every game on AM 1370 WDEA. The Red Sox will play the New York Yankees Friday at 1PM and then the Atlanta Braves Saturday at 1, with Chris Sale scheduled to start.
