The New York Yankees look to sweep the Boston Red Sox in their three-game series Sunday night.
The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Yankees have allowed seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Yankees have won seven of their last eight games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Jacoby Ellsbury leads New York with 30 hits and three RBI while Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira have combined for 32 RBI. The New York Yankees have won five straight games on the road. Adam Warren gets the ball, and he’s 1-1 with a 4.35 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. Warren is 1-2 with a 3.86 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.

The Boston Red Sox need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Red Sox have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Red Sox have split their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. Pablo Sandoval leads Boston with 28 hits and 11 RBI while Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts have combined for 37 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have lost five of their last eight games on their home field. Joe Kelly takes the hill, and he’s 1-0 with a 4.94 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Kelly is 3-0 with a 3.43 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. American League East and 5-1 in Warrens last 6 starts. The Red Sox are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 6-1 in Kellys last 7 starts. The Yankees are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Boston.
The Yanks have owned th Red Sox in this series and recently in Boston overall. I see no good reason to turn down the plus money with the way the Yanks are playing right now.
