Pivetta is making his fourth start of the season, and he comes into the Brewers series off his worst start of the season. Pivetta’s first two starts, he was one of the best Red Sox pitchers this season, but when he faced the Angels lineup, he struggled going four innings giving up six runs on five hits; he walked three and struck out four. In his career against the Brewers, Pivetta has struggled, going 0-2 in two starts and giving up 13 runs on 16 hits in ten innings of work; he has struck out nine Brewers hitters.

Game 2: Garrett Whitlock (1-1, 4.50 ERA)

Whitlock is making his third start of the season after turning in the best start of the season by a Red Sox starter, going seven innings which was a great rebound after his first start when he struggled against the Tampa Bay Rays. Whitlock will look to build off his dominance against the Angels as he takes on the Brewers. He is making his first career start against Milwaukee. He has only pitched in relief against them, going two innings and only giving up two hits. He also struck out one in that outing.

Game 3: Brayan Bello (0-1, 16.88 ERA)

Bello is coming off his first start of the season after being recalled from Worchester. Bello struggled against the Angels but also had to battle the elements as it was cold and rainy on Marathon Monday in Boston. Bello pitched 2.2 innings, giving up five runs on eight hits; he walked one and struck out five in that start. Bello did settle in in the third inning after struggling to find his location in the first two innings, he would strike out the first two Angels hitters he faced in the third, but the sky opened up and ended his day. Bello has faced the Brewers once in his young career, coming out of the bullpen pitching 4.1 innings, giving up two runs on four hits; he also walked three and struck out four.

Red Sox Player To Watch vs. Milwaukee:

Alex Verdugo (.338/2/8)


Alex Verdugo has been off to a hot start this year for the Red Sox and has been a solid leadoff hitter for the team, so far, to this point of the season, he has a slash line of .338/.407/.481. In his career against the Brewers, Verdugo has played in ten games, going nine for 30, and he has one home and six RBI in those games.


The Red Sox are coming into this series after picking up a series win over the Minnesota Twins, who lead the American League Central and finish off a homestand 5-2. Now they will face the National League Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers, and it will not be an easy series. They have to face the Brewers ace in Corbin Burnes. I think the Red Sox will pick up another series win, taking two out of the three games against the Brewers.
