Runs really could turn out to be at a premium on Sunday Night Baseball, especially knowing that the Angels have struggled so badly at the plate, particularly with runners in scoring position. The pitching matchup in this one is quite favorable. RHP John Lackey for the Red Sox obviously has a score to settle every single time that he is on the mound against his former team. Lackey is 4-1 in his career against the Angels, and he only has one bad start against them in his career. Most impressive is the fact that he is 2-0 with just two runs allowed in 15.1 innings of work while pitching here at Angel Stadium as the visiting starter. Not to be outdone, RHP Jered Weaver is going to be hurling for the Halos. The righty has finally started to get back into the form that we all expected him to be in at the outset of the season, and it is starting to come together for sure. Weaver has thrown seven innings in back to back games, and he has only allowed one run in each of those games. We know that Weaver is going to be asked to do a lot of work after the bullpen was taxed on Saturday, but we aren’t worried about that. In the end, don’t expect to see more than perhaps six or seven runs on the board, as these two pitchers should have this game on lockdown.
Red Sox @ Angels Pick: Under 8
Red Sox @ Angels Score Prediction: Red Sox 4 – Angels 2
