Boston Red Sox Form


Boston are in great form as they look to complete this three game sweep of the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

The Red Sox dropped their first couple of games last week, losing back-to-back home meetings with Atlanta.

They rebounded though with a 4-3 win against Baltimore, and then knocked off the New York Yankees 3-2.

Boston lost the next matchup 3-2, but their response has been to embark on a three-game win streak.

The Red Sox beat the Yankees 3-0 before registering 5-3 and 8-3 wins in Pittsburgh to start this six-game roadtrip.

Pittsburgh Pirates Form


Pittsburgh continue to stack up losses as they try to avoid a series sweep at home to Boston.

The Pirates won their first three games of the month, but it has been downhill since with 10 defeats coming in their last 12 games.

They go into this matchup on a six-game losing skid.

Their slide started with a 9-3 defeat in Arizona and continued as they lost all three meetings with the Giants in San Francisco.

Pittsburgh then started this week by suffering back-to-back defeats at home to Boston, losing 5-3 and 8-3.
