Red Sox Pitching Actually Has Been Better This Year Than 2019 Season

This may surprise you but the Boston Red Sox pitching staff has been better this season than 2019.

The pitching arguably has been the most talked about topic revolving around this year’s Red Sox team without the likes of Chris Sale, David Price, Eduardo Rodriguez and Rick Porcello coming to the mound each night.

The Red Sox have the same record through 17 games this season as last year (6-11), but the team’s ERA is down almost a full run with 5.93 in 2019 and 5.01 so far this campaign.

Boston even has allowed nine fewer home runs through 17 games in 2020 with 21 allowed as opposed to 30 in 2019.
