The Red Sox have a 2-3 record. The teams have split the games so far with Boston picking up the most recent win 5-3 on Tuesday. This will be Eovaldi’s second start of the season. In his first game, he pitched five innings and gave up three earned runs on five hits, two of which were home runs. Eovaldi struck out seven and walked one. Through five games, third baseman Rafael Devers has been the team’s best hitter. On Tuesday, it was Devers’ single that scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning.
The Tigers have a 2-3 record and look for their first series win of the season. Eduardo Rodriguez is making his second start of the season. In the first, he pitched four innings and gave up three earned runs on four hits. Rodriguez also had two strikeouts and two walks. Shortstop Javier Baez looks the part of what the Tigers were hoping for when they signed him as a free agent in the offseason. Through five games he is 6/19 with a double, one home run and four RBIs.
