The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees face off on Saturday in game two of their series at Fenway Park.
The Boston Red Sox were unable to hold onto their lead on Friday as they fell to the Yankees. Allen Craig hit a home run, Pablo Sandoval had two hits, and Dustin Pedroia had a hit as the Red Sox scored two runs on eight hits. Starting pitcher Justin Masterson allowed six hits and two runs over 6.0 innings to not factor in the decision as Junichi Tazawa took the loss. For Saturday’s game the Red Sox start Wade Miley who has allowed 17 hits and 15 earned runs while striking out 10 over 15.2 innings for a 1-2 record and a 8.62 ERA.

The New York Yankees came from behind to beat the Red Sox on Friday at Fenway. Alex Rodriguez hit a home run and Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran had two hits as the Yankees scored three runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia allowed seven hits and two runs while striking out three over 6.0 innings to not factor in the decision as Esmil Rogers got the win and Andrew Miller earned his ninth save. For Saturday’s game the Yankees start Nathan Eovaldi who has allowed 31 hits and 10 earned runs while striking out 20 over 21.2 innings for a 1-0 record and a 4.15 ERA.
Boston is 4-9 in their last 13 Saturday games, 0-4 in game two of a series, and 7-19 in their last 26 home games against a team with a winning record. New York is 7-1 in their last eight road games, 8-2 in their last 10 games, and 1-4 in their last five Saturday games. New York is 5-1 in their last six games in Boston.
The total is set at 9.5 but I like the over in this one as I see both of these pitchers getting hit hard. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
