A pair of hot hitters are set to face off when the Miami Marlins (46-34) take on the Boston Red Sox (40-40) at Fenway Park on Wednesday, as Alex Verdugo and his 13-game hitting streak host Luis Arraez and his 10-game streak.

The Marlins took Tuesday’s series opener 10-1. Sandy Alcantara went seven innings, allowing one run on six hits, to get the win. Joey Wendle was 4 for 4 with two runs in the win. Jazz Chisholm Jr. went 3 for 4 with a double, two runs, and three RBIs. Verdugo went 2 for 3 with two doubles and one RBI for the Red Sox.


Braxton Garrett (3-2, 3.64 ERA) is in line to take the mound for Miami. The lefty allowed two runs (one earned) over seven innings in his last start, a 6-4 road win over the Pirates on Thursday. He yielded three hits while striking out 13 in the no-decision.
