Boston is not in-form, but they have faced some stiff competition this month. The Red Sox have been swinging the bats extremely well over the last couple of weeks and they also hit right-handers well. However, the Sox have struggled at the plate on the road all season long.
 
Rodriguez has been battered in three of his last four games. He has not fared well on the road or in night games this year.
 
Seattle is also not in-form. The Mariners have hit better in the second half of the season and have swung the bats better in September. But the Mariners struggle against left-handers and don’t hit well at home at all.
 
Gilbert has pitched well the last two games although he didn’t go over five innings in either game, allowing two runs on 10 hits over 9.1 innings of work. However, Gilbert has been awful at home and during night games this season.
