Hanley Ramirez Channels David Ortiz In Celebratory Tweet After Red Sox's Win

The Baltimore Orioles will be taking on their AL East nemesis Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Boston has covered the spread four times in its last seven games and the total has gone over in five of those seven.

Mitch Moreland also had three hits for the Red Sox, who completed a three-game sweep of the shortened series and improved to a major league-best 13-2 under new manager Alex Cora.

"It doesn't even really seem like we're 11-2, it just seems like each day is a new day and a new game", Mookie Betts said after Friday night's 7-4 victory, the team's 11th in its last 12 games.

Pitching in short sleeves with a game-time temperature of 34 degrees and a wild chill in the mid-20s, the lanky Sale gave up hits to two of first three batters of the game when Trey Mancini reached on an infield hit and scored on Machado's double.

The Orioles (5-8) find themselves 5.5-games behind the 'Sox after their incredible start to the 2018 campaign, so to pull a few of those back right away would be ideal. On the other hand, the Red Sox have netted 7.3 units and are 6-6 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher.
