A winning streak will be on the line for the Boston Red Sox on Saturday when they battle the Chicago White Sox at Fenway Park.

The White Sox will trot James Shields out to the mound in this one. Right hander Shields has a 2-3 record and a 6.19 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Drew Pomeranz who starts for the Red Sox. Left hander Pomeranz is 10-4 with a 3.46 ERA so far this season.

Shields is struggling through a stretch of five straight outings without a quality start and was ripped for six runs and eight hits across six innings against Toronto on Monday. The California native served up three homers in that turn and has allowed 15 in 56 ? total innings. Nunez is 13-for-26 with three home runs in his career against Shields.

Pomeranz has allowed two or fewer earned runs in seven of his last nine starts and is coming off a strong start against Kansas City on Sunday. The 28-year-old, who was on the San Diego Padres’ staff with Shields at the beginning of last season, yielded one run in 6 ? innings but did not factor into the decision against the Royals. Pomeranz struck out eight and scattered seven hits and one run over seven frames in a win at Chicago on May 31.

Oddsmakers currently have the Red Sox listed as 285-moneyline favorites versus the White Sox, while the game’s total is sitting at 10.

The Boston Red Sox are taking advantage of their nine-game homestand by opening up a gap on the rest of the field in the American League East. The Red Sox will try to increase their advantage in the division and post a fifth consecutive victory when they host the Chicago White Sox in the third of a four-game series on Saturday.

Boston’s new additions of Eduardo Nunez and Rafael Devers are proving to be a big boost to the offense, but it was a piece off the bench doing the damage Friday when Mitch Moreland, who entered the game in the ninth inning, blasted a walk-off home run in the 11th inning. The offense’s recent success is a nice complement to the bullpen, which looked vulnerable earlier in the week against Cleveland but has turned in 8 ? scoreless innings in the first two games against Chicago. The White Sox might be seeing some signs of promise from top prospect Yoan Moncada, who recorded a pair of hits on Friday against his former team and played strong defense at second base. Moncada will try to keep it going on Saturday against Red Sox lefty Drew Pomeranz, while Chicago counters with veteran James Shields.

Last time out for Boston, they were a 3-2 winner as they battled the White Sox on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Red Sox at -203 were rewarded, while the 5 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Chicago lost its last outing, a 3-2 result against the Red Sox on August 04. Bettors who backed the Red Sox at -203 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
