Game two of the season series between the Boston Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers continues tonight. Both teams come in with something to prove and grabbing wins early on in the season can help pad a record as the season turns into a long grind. These two teams don’t play each other often but with the new schedule rules in place, will start to see each other at least one every year. With the lack of familiarity, it should provide a fun and exciting matchup to watch as it unfolds for the rest of the series.
Date: Saturday, April 22nd, 2023
Time: 7:10 p.m. EST
Location: American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Team Records: Boston Red Sox (11-10), Milwaukee Brewers (14-6)
Projected Starting Pitchers:
Garrett Whitlock (1-1, 4.50 ERA) vs Wade Miley (2-1, 1.50 ERA)
What to Watch:
This game is going to come down to whether or not the Red Sox can slow down the Milwaukee offense. Boston has the means to pitch effectively but will need to make sure they don’t get lost in this lineup because the Brewers will surely make them pay. Milwaukee has an awesome home atmosphere so the Red Sox will need to come in focused and not allow themselves to get rattled if they want to come away with the win.
The Brewers have been one of the best teams in baseball this season, a surprise to many other than those in the clubhouse. This team has a ton of talent up and down the roster, which has helped lead to the hot start. Despite this, their star Christian Yelich has struggled to start the year. He needs to pick things up for this team to really be contenders as the season goes on.
Game Prediction: Milwaukee Brewers 6, Boston Red Sox 4
Within this game, I see Boston taking a lead into the late innings but Milwaukee rallies. They come back and snatch the victory here.
