Wednesday MLB action features the Boston Red Sox visiting the New York Yankees.
The Boston Red Sox saw their one game lead in the AL East disappear after a 3-2 loss at the Yankees on Tuesday. Boston starter Drew Pomeranz allowed two runs on solo jacks through six frames with Heath Hembree absorbing the loss with a run scoring in 1/3 of an inning.

The Red Sox banged out eight hits with Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi driving in runs with Eduardo Nunez scoring twice. Left hander David Price draws Wednesday’s start versus the rival Yankees. Price has suffered three straight defeats after an 11-5 loss at Texas with nine runs plated over 3.2 frames.
The New York Yankees moved in to a first place tie atop the AL East following their narrow 3-2 win versus Boston in the series opener Tuesday. New York starter Luis Severino allowed both runs and struck out eleven over six innings while three relievers tossed scoreless baseball.
The Yankees offense did their damage on six hits and five free passes with Giancarlo Stanton clubbing a pair of homers with Aaron Judge driving in Neil Walker who doubled. The NY Yankees have named Masahiro Tanaka as Wednesday’s starter versus the Red Sox. Tanaka comes in off of a 6-5 win (ND) at Houston with three runs plated on five hits in six innings.
Boston are 12-2 in their last 14 Wednesday games and Boston are 20-7 in their last 27 road games and under is 11-5 in Boston last 16 Wednesday games. Over is 12-4 in NY Yankees last 16 home games and NY Yankees are 38-13 in their last 51 home games and NY Yankee are 44-18 in their last 62 games on grass. Boston are 4-10 in the last 14 meetings in New York.
The Yankees have stood toe to toe with the Red Sox at home and I see no reason to expect anything else on Wednesday…
