Philadelphia Phillies Odds
The Philadelphia Phillies kick off their first true road trip of the season Tuesday against the slumping Boston Red Sox. Due to a series of postponements caused by team coronavirus outbreaks, the Phillies have only played one true road game this season.
Philadelphia is about to embark on a 10-game trip to face Toronto (playing in Buffalo), Atlanta and Washington after two in Boston. The Phillies enter Tuesday having won three straight, while the Red Sox are mired in an eight-game skid.
Right-hander Zach Eflin (0-1, 3.60 ERA) takes the mound for Philadelphia having struck out a career-high 10 in his last start. He has never faced the Red Sox in his career.
Boston Red Sox Odds
The Boston Red Sox return home looking to snap their eight-game losing streak as they host the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. Boston has been outscored 73-35 during its skid, which was extended by a 6-3 loss to the New York Yankees on Monday night.
Nine straight would be Boston’s longest losing streak since a 10-game rut in May 2014. Right-hander Zack Godley (0-2, 8.16 ERA) will take the mound for the Red Sox looking to rebound from yielding eight runs in his latest start.
He is 1-0 with a 1.53 ERA in four career games (two starts) against the Phillies, all while he was with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
