Red Sox’s Struggle: Seeking Redemption on the Road

The Red Sox are looking to turn their fortunes around in their upcoming road game against the Cards. The Boston Red Sox will try to regroup on the road after losing three of their four home games.

That trip begins when they open a three-game series against St. Louis. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

Offensive Highlights: Duran and Devers Shine Despite Recent Setbacks

The Red Sox lost 7-5 to the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night in their best offensive game of the month. Jarren Duran (3-for-5, homer, 2 doubles, 2 runs) and Rafael Devers (2-for-4, homer, 2 runs)) lead the way. Devers has hit back-to-back home runs and Duran is 5-for-8 with four doubles and three runs scored in the past two games.

But since May 2, the Red Sox have scored three runs, or nine times. During that time, they went 4-9, falling behind in the AL East.

Brayon Bello Returns: A Boost for the Red Sox Rotation

The Red Sox open the series with starting pitcher Brayon Bello (4-1, 3.13 ERA), who is coming off the 15-day injury list and is 3-2 in his last start. He allowed two runs on four hits in five innings while striking out one and allowing two hits. “His first season out of Illinois? Good,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “Give me five points, two points. So he is ready for the next opportunity.

The strong right side kept Bello out of the front row for many prizes.

Bello told reporters through the team’s translator: “It’s great to be back, it’s great to help the team win, it’s great to see a lot of good things about ours now.” “A lot of people are coming back, so that’s great.”

It was his first career start against the Cardinals, who have lost 10 of their last 14 games.

Cardinals’ Pitching Challenge: Kyle Gibson Takes the Mound

When St. Louis in favor of Kyle Gibson (2-2, 3.67). He has two no-hitters in his two starts, allowing five runs (4 ERA) on 10 hits in 11 innings.

Gibson scored 11 points and had six in the game. He doesn’t get much support, which is always a problem for St. Louis this time. The Cardinals went 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position in Wednesday’s 7-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. They went 11-for-73 and posted a 3-4 record against the Milwaukee Brewers and Angels.

St. Louis’s Recent Performance: Mixed Results and Optimism from Coach Marmore

However, St. Louis coach Louis Oliver Marmore says he believes his team is in a better position heading into this Boston series after taking two of three from the Angels.

“The trip started out bad,” Malmo said Wednesday in Anaheim, California. . They are not good. Game 3 (lost 5-3 last Saturday) I was so ready to lose. We do not blame ourselves. That’s the twist for the rest of the Milwaukee series and the first two games here. It’s good to be at home. Of course.

“We are in a better position. All aspects of the game are as they are now. The attack has started to work. That’s what was missing. It looks good.

Gibson is 4-4 with a 3.41 ERA in 10 career starts against the Red Sox.
