Santiago's 5-0 (1.48 ERA) in July but owns a 5.28 ERA in 10 home starts TY...
My free play is on the Bos Red Sox at 9:05 ET.
Drew Pomeranz began his MLB career with the Oak A’s but was traded from Oakland to San Diego during the offseason. He developed a much-needed third pitch (a “cutter”) and he posted a 2.47 ERA in 17 starts for the Padres (he was 8-7 and the team 9-8). His strong first half earned him a NL All-Star team berth but he was traded to Boston on July 14, where in two starts he’s allowed seven ERs on 12 hits in just nine innings (7.00 ERA with an 0-1 record / team is 1-1).
Boston snapped a four-game slide with last night’s 6-2 win in Anaheim and tonight, Pomeranz will face one of the hottest pitchers in MLB. Hector Santiago is 9-4 with a 4.28 ERA on the season in 21 starts (team is 15-6) but he hasn't lost a decision since June 10, winning six consecutive decisions and five straight starts. He makes his final start of the month, already 5-0 with a 1.48 ERA in July. However, let’s NOT overlook that in 10 home starts, Santiago owns a 5.28 ERA or that Boston ranks first in runs scored (5.61 per), as well as in BA (.289) and OPS (.830).
The bet here says that Pomeranz earns his first win as a Red Sox.
