The Red Sox are a completely different team on the road, as they are in Fenway. While they are winning at an 80% clip at home (28-7), they have been dreadful on the road winning just 40% (14-21). They look alluring as a road dog, but have dropped their last 5 in that role. Edinson Volquez is heading to the All-Star game, and may earn the starting pitching role. He leads the league in ERA at 1.56, and stands at 9-2. He has made all quality starts on the season and has yet to allow more than 3 runs in any game and that was just once. The Reds are a perfect 6-0 in his home starts, and at 21-12 on the season at home, this team plays well in front of the hometowners, and we will take them here.
