Bottom Line for the Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox get a starting pitcher back, and he will start Saturday’s game against the A’s, which now gives them three healthy pitchers in the rotation. Yu Chang returns and will get the start, batting ninth and playing shortstop tonight. The Red Sox will have Brennan Bernadino on the mound tonight as he makes his second start of his career and second start in the last four days. The Red Sox need to take this series from the A’s as they will look to carry some momentum into the All-Star break, make up some ground in the Wild Card chase, and hopefully have that momentum for what will be a crucial second-half stretch run.
