The Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox are set to begin a quick two-game series on Tuesday night. With a new schedule in place this season in MLB, there aren’t many two-game series that take place, especially an interleague matchup.
The Boston Red Sox come into Atlanta with an overall record of 21-15, and they are currently sitting in fourth place in the AL East. Boston just had a long winning streak snapped, but they are looking to get things going again quickly.
Atlanta comes into this game with an overall record of 24-11, and they are back on top of the NL East Division. The Braves have won four of their last five games, and they are a team that is loaded with young and veteran talent.
This could be a series in which both teams do some serious damage at the plate, especially in the series opener.

MLB Atlanta at Boston Series: Tuesday, May 9 – Wednesday, May 10, 2023
Red Sox Need Some Pitching
It has been a solid start to the season for the Red Sox, but they are a team that is still looking for more pitching. Boston comes into this game with a team ERA of 4.84, and that’s not going to get the job done as the year moves along.
Nick Pivetta will be on the mound in the series opener, and he has gone just 2-2 with a 4.99 ERA. Boston does have an offense that can make up for a lack of pitching, but the Braves have an offense that can really do some damage.
Rafael Devers is having a huge start to the season for Boston as he has belted 11 home runs and driven in 34 runs. The Red Sox have been better than projected on offense, and they will have to do some damage in this one.
Braves Loaded With Talent
The Atlanta Braves seemingly never run out talented players, and that lineup is easily one of the best in baseball. Atlanta has belted 58 home runs so far this season, and they also have a team batting average of .260.
Matt Olson leads the team with nine home runs, and newcomer Sean Murphy has a team-high 28 RBIs this season. The Braves will be trying to win games on offense, but they also have a great pitching staff.
Charlie Morton starts on Tuesday night, but the Braves will have to find a fill-in starter on Wednesday. Atlanta has a team ERA of just 3.48 this season, and that pitching staff is good enough to win games on its own.
Braves Win Games With Offense
The Boston Red Sox had a great start to the month of May, but they are still a team that has some serious flaws. Boston is not expected to be a playoff team this season, and those flaws are going to be exposed against Atlanta.
The Braves are dealing with some injuries heading into this series, but they should still have a great two days at home. Atlanta will have to find a starting pitcher on Wednesday, but there are some great options out there.
If you are going to be betting on this series, then it’s hard to bet against the Braves as that offense should take complete control and give this team a victory.
