MLB: Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Rays have gotten the early headlines among the American League East teams for their hot start to the season, but every team in the division entered Monday with a winning record. On Tuesday, the Boston Red Sox slug it out with the Baltimore Orioles in the second game of a three-game series at Camden Yards.

Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles (-165, 9)

The Orioles hand the ball to Kyle Bradish, who has a 4.60 ERA since getting called up to the Majors last season along with 3.4 walks per nine innings. At home, his ERA balloons to 5.00 with 1.7 home runs per nine innings allowed at home.

His counterpart in Corey Kluber has been a disaster since being acquired by the Red Sox, losing all four of his starts while posting an 8.50 ERA and allowing at least four runs in three of his four starts.

Since the 2022 All-Star Break, the Boston bullpen has not lent a lot of support to the starting pitching staff, ranking 28th in the league with a 5.12 ERA, while the Baltimore bullpen is 14th in ERA in this span.

Both lineups have also come out swinging this season, with the Orioles entering Monday sixth in the league in runs per game while the Red Sox are fourth with 5.7 runs per game on the road.

In the Red Sox's first 23 games of the season, the over hit in 16 of them and with the way both starting pitchers have both performed and are supported, that trend will continue on Tuesday.
