The New York Yankees look to remain hot after winning six of their last nine games. The Yankees have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Yankees have lost five of their last eight when scoring three or less runs. Chase Headley leads New York with 147 hits and 62 RBI while Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius have combined for 119 RBI. The New York Yankees have won four of their last five home games. Masahiro Tanaka takes the hill, and he’s 12-7 with a 3.38 ERA and 136 strikeouts this season. Tanaka is 4-2 with a 4.84 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 8-3 in their last 11 during game 1 of a series and 0-4 in Rodriguezs last 4 road starts. The Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 games on grass and 5-2 in their last 7 Monday games. The Red Sox are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings.
The AL East is all but out of reach for the Yankees. Also, Rodriguez has been solid against the Yankees this season and these games are usually close. I'll take a shot with the sweet plus money.
