Red Sox headed for eighth win in a row as Phils aim to stop the slide


Two teams with opposite tendencies meet again on Saturday when Boston Red Sox face the landlord Philadelphia in the second game of a series of three games

The Red Soxwho traveled to Philadelphia to beat the Toronto Blue Jays four games, extending their winning streak to seven games with a 5-3 win over Phillies on Friday

Philadelphia received its fifth consecutive loss.

A big part of Boston’s recent success is down to leftist Masataka Yoshida, when the 29-year-old rookie from Japan hit .476 (10 to 21) in May and hit a record 15. He helped Red Sox completed the Toronto sweep with a 11-5 win on Thursday, winning 3 to 5 with three RBIs and a 400-foot homer to the triangle at Fenway Park in his first game.

Designated hitter Justin Turner also enjoyed a big run against the Blue Jays, 8 to 18 (.444). He and Yoshida are the new additions that helped propel Boston to a surprisingly successful start.

The Red Sox is also proving successful on baselines, having stolen 21 bases in 22 attempts

“I love this offense,” said Boston coach Alex Cora. “I like where we are right now. … You just have to run, and put pressure on the opponent. … They’ll make it work, and that’s the goal and so far so good. .”

Corey Kluber (1-4, 6.44 ERA) will receive the ball for Red Sox on Saturday. He got off to a good start in his final game, allowing for three runs in five and a half innings and a seven-point run in Boston’s 6-5 game against Toronto on Monday.

In two career starts vs. Phillies, Kluber is 1-0 with 3.46 ERA. However, he hasn’t opposed them since 2016. Among Philadelphia players, Josh Harrison is 4 to 10 (.400) against Kluber with a homer, while Nick Castellanos is 13 to 48 ( .271) with 18 hits and one walk

Philadelphia in the opposite form as Red Sox. The Phillies was wiped out by the home team Los Angeles Dodgers three games to open the week

Bailey Falter (0-5, 5.01 ERA) will get the nod for Phillies on Saturday, looking to finish an individual slide he’d lost in all four previous starts

The left-hander struggled in his most recent game, when he let four runs with eight hits in just four thirds against the Houston Astros on Sunday. He threw the ball better in the previous game, when he hit seven and dropped four runs (three earned) in six innings against the Seattle Mariners on April 25.

Falter won the only time before he faced Red Soxwhen he threw two halves without scoring with relief on July 10, 2021

Bryce Harper arrives for reinforcements in time Phillies‘ receded, making his season debut Tuesday in Los Angeles after recovering from off-season elbow surgery. Two-time National League MVP is hitting a ball of 0.364 (4 to 11) in the first three games back

Philadelphia could use a revival from left-hander Kyle Schwarber, who drew 0-5 with three strikes on Friday and a first-round foul that led to a run. Schwarber is 0 to 14 with six goals in the past three games.

“I’ll keep working,” Schwarber said. “I have to keep working in the cage (balling.) I feel like the cage is the biggest thing and it’s going to settle down, if you just go out there and play.”
