Bos vs Bal: Beckett vs Guthrie

Beckett (17-6) goes for the major league lead in wins at 18 and pushes towards his first Cy Young award. Beckett going into today is 4-1 in his last six starts.

After Boston’s awful blow up last night with Matsuzaka, any edge today to get Boston back on track is needed. Beckett starting is a nice first edge. Next good hope is Boston has the best day game record at 30-13 (.698 W%).

Guthrie (7-5) is having a very nice year with the Orioles. He has a 3.65 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. His biggest weakness has been giving up the long ball. He’s allowed 23 HR’s this year in 165.1 innings. He is 23rd in baseball in HR’s allowed. In his opponent batting stats Guthrie has a .245/.297/.415 line.

Note:

-Dice-K’s 2.1 innings pitched last night was the shortest outing by a starter this year.
