Wednesday night, the Boston Red Sox will give the ball to Rubby De La Rosa as they square off against the Baltimore Orioles and Wei-Yin Chen. It will be De La Rosa’s 3rd start and Chen’s 13th.
Rubby De La Rosa took the loss his last time out and that evened his record to 1 – 1 with a 2.84 ERA. In that start, he gave up 4 runs on 9 hits (including 2 homers) in 5.2 innings. De La Rosa walked 2 while striking out 5. Last season, De La Rosa worked exclusively from the bullpen and posted a record of 0 – 2 with a 5.56 ERA in 11 relief appearances.
In 2013, De La Rosa lost his only appearance against the Orioles after giving up a run and a hit in just 2/3rds of an inning. In his career, he has only faced 2 of the current Orioles. Steve Clevenger is 0 for 1 against De La Rosa while Jonathan Schoop is 1 for 1.
Wei-Yin Chen pitched to a no-decision in his last start and that kept his record at 6 – 2 with a 4.26 ERA. Chen posted his 3rd no-decision in his last 4 starts after surrendering 2 runs (both on solo homers) on 5 hits in 6.1 innings as he struck out 4 without issuing a walk. Chen already is close to matching last year when he went 7 - 7 with a 4.07 ERA in 23 starts.
In 2013, Chen was 0 - 2 with a 7.29 ERA in 4 starts against the Red Sox. This season, Chen opened the season with a loss against Boston but he rebounded with a win later on in April.
