Boston Red Sox vs Philadelphia Phillies Predictions 5/7/2023

 

The Philadelphia Phillies‘ attempt to defend their National League Championship in 2023 did not go well.

 

They were losing four consecutive games going into game one of the series with Boston and are now playing below .500 baseball. The Phillies lost the opening game 5-3, striking out fourteen times.

 

Things didn’t get any better. The Phillies lost to the Red Sox 7-4 on Saturday night, marking their sixth straight loss. In the defeat, Bryce Harper had two hits and a single home run.

 

The Phillies’ Taijuan Walker will start the series finale on Sunday. Walker made six starts and is 2-2, although his ERA is 6.91. In 28.2 innings, he allowed 29 hits, including seven home runs.

 

His K/9 ratio is at 9.1. Walker made two starts at home, each of which resulted in a no-decision. In his two home starts, he only lasted 8.2 innings while giving up 8 hits and 7 runs.

 

Walker’s strikeout percentage increased this season but his rate of hard hits decreased. However, his walk percentage, which is now at a career-high 13.2%, was a major problem.

 

  • The total went OVER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 5 matches.
  • The Philadelphia Phillies is 0-6 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 6 matches against Boston.

Boston Red Sox vs Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox will now face Walker, who had control issues all season, after seeing the most 3-2 counts in MLB this year.

 

The Red Sox, who were baseball’s hottest offense over the past two weeks, can be expected to load up the bases with runners and generate lots of scoring opportunities.

 

Houck took a lot of hits this season, but his past two outings saw him pitch better, and he can now hand the ball off to the Red Sox bullpen, which was excellent throughout their current winning run.

 

The Boston Red Sox will win to a predicted score of 6-5.
