The Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins have both had their struggles on the field this season. Entering this series, Boston is nine games out of first place in the American League East. The difference between the two teams is the Twins were never expected to do much, while the Red Sox are coming off a World Series victory last season.

Now the Twins are on the Red Sox schedule for a three-game series to start the week. Red Sox tickets are averaging $65.52 for the series, a drop of 54 percent from the season average.

6/16 MIN Kevin Correia vs. BOS Rubby De La Rosa| Avg. Price: $63.53 | Get-in Price: $20

Youngster Rubby De La Rosa gets the first start of the series for the Red Sox. De La Rosa had a great first start, but has failed to make it out of the sixth inning his last two times out, giving up four runs in both. The get-in price for the Red Sox vs. Twins tickets is the cheapest of the series at $20. The average price is also on the lower end of the series at $63.54.

6/17 MIN Phil Hughes vs. BOS Jon Lester | Avg. Price: $62.79 | Get-in Price: $23

Game two of the series has the cheapest average price at $62.79. It also features the two team’s best pitchers. Phil Hughes has been outstanding in his first season in Minnesota. He’s walking less than a batter per nine innings, while striking out close to eight, and has the highest WAR on the team by far at 2.3. Jon Lester leads the Red Sox in WAR with 2.6 and is striking out over a batter per inning. The get-in price for the game is at $23.

6/18 MIN Kyle Gibson vs. BOS John Lackey | Avg. Price: $70.23 | Get-in Price: $23

There was a time when John Lackey looked like a huge free agent bust for the Red Sox. Now he is one of their best pitchers. He leads the staff in wins, innings pitched, and is second on the team with a WAR of 2.4. He takes the mound for the final game of the series and the most expensive game. The average price is $70.23 and the get-in price is $23. Kyle Gibson is pitching for the Twins, and he has been good in his first full season for the twins. The 26-year-old groundball pitcher is pitching better than expected with a 2.55 ERA and a WAR of 1.2.
