The dangerous Red Sox offense was held to six hits and a free pass with Andrew Benintendi driving in Mookie Betts with the lone run. The Red Sox hand the ball to left hander Chris Sale for Saturday’s start at the Yankees. Sale defeated Seattle 4-0 last time out with seven shutout innings where he struck out 13.
The New York Yankees received outstanding efforts on the mound and at the plate in a series opening rout of Boston on Friday. New York starter CC Sabathia improved to 5-3 with the only run allowed on five hits over seven innings.
The Yankees racked up eleven hits and walked twice with Aaron Judge cracking a two run bomb while Miguel Andujar went 3-4 with a homer and three RBI’s followed by Greg Bird who went deep two times.
The Yankees have named Sonny Gray as the starter for Saturday’s game versus Boston. Gray comes off of a 4-0 loss at Tampa Bay with all four runs plated on six hits in 6.2 frames.
Boston are 13-4 in their last 17 Saturday games and Boston are 55-26 in their last 81 overall. Under is 21-4-1 in NY Yankees last 26 overall and under is 20-5-1 in NY Yankees last 26 on grass and under is 12-3-1 in NY Yankees last 16 home games. Under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in New York.
I think the edge on the mound belongs to Sale and that means the Red Sox will have some success at the plate…
