Two struggling offenses will take the field in Boston on Friday when the Red Sox (61-56) and Angels (56-60) continue their four-game series into the weekend.
Boston won 3-0 on Thursday on the back of 13 strikeouts from Chris Sale, but they have averaged just 3.9 runs scored per game over a 2-9 stretch since the Yankees demolished sale on the July 28 edition of Sunday Night Baseball.
The Angels have gone into a 2-11 tailspin after sweeping the Dodgers on July 24, scoring a meager 2.3 runs scored per game amid a seven-game losing streak. With the current state of the Halos offense, they’ll need another strong outing from Jaime Barria on a Friday to win at Fenway Park.
