Coming into this matchup, the Red Sox are just 1/2 a game ahead of the Seattle Mariners for the second AL wild-card spot. A loss to the bottom dwellers of the AL East could very well put them on the outside looking in.
In Tuesday's matchup between these two teams, the Orioles were able to play the role of spoiler beautifully, getting a 4-2 win over the Red Sox. Baltimore was led by first baseman Ryan Mountcastle, who hit his 32nd home run of the year. Boston saw Hunter Renfroe and Kyle Schwarber both hit solo home runs in the loss.
Boston is in as close to a must-win scenario as it can possibly get without it being an elimination game.
With a huge game on the line, the Red Sox are scheduled to start Nathan Eovaldi (10-9, 3.88 ERA). For the Orioles, Zac Lowther (1-2, 7.66 ERA) will get the starting nod.
