MLB | Boston 5 @ Pittsburgh 3 | 08/16 | 11:05 PM UTC
ANALYSIS: Pittsburgh put third baseman Ke'Bryan Hayes on the IL today. Boston gets back leadoff man Enrique Hernandez from the 60-day IL (although he may not hit leadoff immediately). However, All-Star shortstop Xander Bogaerts is sitting in a surprise, so I've just changed my mind mid-sentence and will take Pittsburgh on the runline (-140) because it's cheaper than the Sox ML (-145). Mitch Keller was once a very touted pitching prospect for the Bucs. His career ERA is 5.32, but Keller has a 2.23 ERA over his last six outings since July 11. He has allowed three or fewer earned runs in 11 of his last 13 starts since returning to the rotation on May 31. (Note: It's not Roansy Contreras on the mound -- he's starting Wednesday). Boston's Nick Pivetta is 0-4 with a 7.97 ERA in eight starts since the beginning of July.
