The MLB is back in action on Thursday evening as the Boston Red Sox will clash with the Los Angeles Angels in game three of a three-game series from Angel Stadium of Anaheim in Anaheim, California. The Red Sox were dominant in the first game as they won with a score of 10-1. Boston will start the game with Eduardo Rodriguez and Nick Tropeano will get the nod for the Angels in this game.
Boston Red Sox Form
The Boston Red Sox are enjoying a great start of the season as their early form is 14-2 so far this season. Moreover, the Red Sox are on a run of five wins in a row. Their offensive firepower has been very productive in the last nine games as they have averaged 8.33 runs per game in those games. The Red Sox have dominance can be seen through the stat which shows that they outscored their opponents 36-11 during their winning run. Eduardo Rodriguez will take the nod for the Red Sox who has gone 1-0 with a 3.72 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP in two starts on the season so far. On the offensive part of their game, the Red Sox have been perfect so far as they are placed on the 1st spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 6.19 runs per game, while also ranking 2nd in hitting at .283 and 10th in homers with 19. On the mound, the Red Sox have enjoyed a good form as they are ranked 2nd in the league in ERA at 2.82, while also ranking 4th in WHIP at 1.13 and 7th in K’s with 164.
Los Angeles Angels Form
The Los Angeles Angels started their season with a solid form as they were on a 7 game winning streak with an average of 7.00 runs per game. Shohei Ohtani has been the main force behind this solid start as he impressed at the plate and on the mound in the early stage of the season. Their 10-1 loss at the hands of the Red Sox broke that winning run and have disrupted their good start of the season.
On the offensive part of the game, the Angels have been in a strong form as they are placed on the 2nd spot in the league putting up 6.12 runs per game, while also ranking 1st in hitting at .283 and 2nd in homers with 26.

Los Angeles is ranked 12th in the league in ERA at 3.58, while also being placed at the 15th spot in WHIP at 1.31 and 14th in K’s with 154.
All in all, we can conclude that the Red Sox are the best team in the league at the moment and their offensive firepower has been dominant so far. On the other side, the Angels are also very strong and their recent record is 13-4 in the first 17 games of the season. However, I will go for the Red Sox to win this game. Boston is unstoppable right now and I think that their dominance will continue on Thursday Evening. Go for a Red Sox win.
