The Indians are going to face the Red Sox in this game, but for the Indians the team is taking to the road in this game and that could make it a challenge for a win to come home. What else is not going to help the Indians out is the fact that they are 1-4 in their last 5 games and in those losses the pitching staff has really failed the Indians as they have allowed two 6 run games and two 7 run games in the losses.
The Red Sox are heading into this game playing great at home with a record that has them sitting 3 games over the five hundred mark. However, what else is impressive for the Red Sox is the fact the team has managed to pick up a lot of the wins they needed at the right time and that holds true with their win on Sunday against the Astros. In the last 5 games the Red Sox have won 3 and lost only 2 of those games.

The Red Sox are playing in Fenway and facing an Indians team that is reeling on the year, but also an Indians team that does not have an offense that is able to hit consistently. With the Green Monster it will help the Red Sox out as any hits the Indians hitters do manage to get will stay in the park and with the weak scoring offense of the Indians it will make it impossible for them to score a lot. Final Score Prediction, Boston Red Sox win 5-2.
