The Red Sox (46-22) look to sweep the Orioles (19-47) behind Chris Sale (5-4. 2.83 ERA) as they wrap up a three-game series in Baltimore this afternoon, weather permitting (3:05 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-market).
About today’s game: The nicest game of the year sees Sale squaring off against righty Yefry Ramirez (NR), who will be making his Major League debut. Even with Sale struggling a little bit, we can safely say the Sox have the advantage. Mookie Betts is back atop the lineup, but Mitch Moreland gets a day off, with hot-hitting Brock Holt playing first.
