  1. With one win officially in the bank, the Sox will now attempt for a double header sweep. On the mound for the Sox will be Michael Kopech, who is expected to pitch 2 to 3 innings depending on his efficiency. Kopech has been insanely good to start this year, putting up a 0.94 FIP and a 99th %tile xwOBA. Not only is he striking out opposing hitting like crazy (15.26/9), but he’s also inducing incredibly weak contact when the ball is put in play. While he’s gotten great results on his 4 seamer, his slider has arguably been the best pitch in baseball this year with an xwOBA of 0.017 and a 73% whiff rate. Simply put, Kopech looks like the real deal and should hopefully put the Red Sox in their place before handing the game over to Crochet for a couple. As for the Red Sox, they are starting veteran innings eater Martin Perez. Normally I’d call this a gift from the baseball gods given he’s a left-handed pitcher with a career 4.78 FIP against RH hitters, but Tony has done us no favors in game 2 with Timmy & Grandal on the bench. Even so, I’m not betting against this team with a lefty on the mound, but it does put a lot of pressure on Abreu & Mercedes to carry the load today. Let’s fucking go!!
