Why you should back the Red Sox

Boston entered Sunday’s series finale in Baltimore tied for the second-fewest homers in the American League with seven but nearly matched that total by bashing six. J.D. Martinez was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday due to cold symptoms but returned to the lineup Sunday and combined with Rafael Devers for five of those blasts. It marked the fourth time in franchise history that one player hit three homers and another went deep twice.

Martinez tied Shea Hillenbrand for the most RBIs (16) by a Boston player through the team’s first nine games and is bidding to become the first player in history with an extra-base hit in nine straight contests to open the season. Devers can extend his home run streak to four games after hitting four and driving in nine runs over the weekend. The Red Sox scored 27 runs in the three-game set and are averaging 8.82 runs during the six-game win streak.

Why you should back the Twins

Byron Buxton continued his season-opening tear by going 3-for-4 with four RBIs in Sunday’s loss, including his team-leading fifth home run. He went 8-for-13 with two homers and two doubles in the weekend series vs. Seattle and his eight-game hitting streak is the second-longest of his career, behind a 12-game run in August 2017. Nelson Cruz has hit safely in six straight games and is batting .444 with four homers and nine RBIs.

Minnesota’s starting pitchers entered Sunday’s game with a 5-0 record and major league-leading 1.88 ERA. Left-hander J.A. Happ (0-0, 2.25 ERA) did not factor in the decision in his season debut, permitting one run on three hits over four innings. The 38-year-old Happ owns a long history of success against Boston with a 13-4 record and 2.79 ERA, which included a 3-0 mark in four starts in 2019 while a member of the New York Yankees.
