Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox were struggling in their last 10 matchups by having won three, yet lost five in a row. The last two defeats to the Los Angeles Angels and the Chicago White Sox have moved their position to be last in the standings.
Boston pitchers haven't been at their finest display too, with 107 earned runs being allowed.
During the meet-up against the Braves, it will be Nathan Eovaldi starting on the mound. The current top starter for the Red Sox is 1-1 with an ERA of 2.94 this year.
Also coming out productive this year is J.D. Martinez, who in the last seven games has hit two home runs and six RBIs while he maintained an average of .323.
Martinez's performance is indeed promising as of late. However, the real task would be how his productivity could result in the team's victory.
The Braves started this season quite inconsistently as well, mainly due to the departure of their star first baseman Freddie Freeman.
The situation has then slowly been contained after the return of Ronald Acuna Jr. to the lineup with some other big bats beginning to show their value within the team.
For Tuesday's game, the Braves will send Ian Anderson as the starting pitcher. He is currently 3-1 with an ERA of 4.01.
In this season, the Braves also have the 28-year-old Matt Olson, who is assigned to cover the hole left by Freddie Freeman. His consistency hasn't been fully proven with him being only a .264 batting average thus far.
Additionally, he currently has three home runs and 13 RBIs, as well as 12 doubles, which is currently the most in baseball.
