Match-Up: Boston Red Sox (Matuszaka) at Seattle Mariners (Fister)

The Red Sox and Mariners will square off in the final game of this three game set. The Red Sox will send out righty, Daisuke Matuszaka (7-3, 4.29 ERA) to the mound. Coming off an impressive 6 2/3 inning, two-hit game against the A’s, Matsuzaka will look to win his second consecutive game in the second half. Daisuke has won four of his last five decisions and has excelled against the Mariners in his career (2-1, 3.99 ERA)

The Mariners will send out the struggling, Doug Fister. Fister (3-6, 3.56 ERA) has fallen victim to one of baseball’s most inept offenses. In his last four starts, Fister has only received seven runs in support. Fister has never faced the Red Sox, but carries a 2-3 record with a 2.56 ERA at home.

I’m going with Bahston here. Daisuke is pitching better and the Mariners just can’t seem to score runs.

The Pick: Boston Red Sox

July Record: 13-10
