The Line: New York Yankees +150 / Boston Red Sox -180 -- Over/Under: 10
The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox meet Sunday in MLB action at Fenway Park.
The New York Yankees need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Yankees have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The New York Yankees have won seven of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 130 hits and 71 RBI while Gleyber Torres and Luke Voit have combined for 202 hits and 109 RBI. Domingo German gets the ball, and he is 12-2 with a 4.03 ERA and 98 strikeouts this season. German is 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Boston Red Sox look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Red Sox have scored 38 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 12 of their last 16 games. The Boston Red Sox have won eight straight games when scoring four or more runs. Rafael Devers leads the Red Sox with 137 hits and 82 RBI while Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts have combined for 243 hits and 136 RBI. Chris Sale gets the ball, and he is 5-9 with a 4.00 ERA and 182 strikeouts this season. Sale is 6-6 with a 2.10 ERA and 146 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 52-22 in their last 74 vs. American League East, 8-2 in Germans last 10 road starts and 19-7 in Germans last 26 starts. The Red Sox are 17-5 in their last 22 during game 4 of a series, 1-4 in their last 5 Sunday games and 3-7 in Sales last 10 home starts. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Boston and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 10-4-2 in Sales last 16 home starts. The under is 5-1 in Germans last 6 starts overall.
German has allowed 21 hits and 11 runs in his last 21.2 innings, and the Yankees have won 11 of the last 13 games he's pitched. Sale has allowed 22 hits and 12 runs in his last 22.1 innings, and he has a 4.26 ERA in 57 innings at home this season. The Boston Red Sox are looking more and more like the team from last year, while the Yankees pitching staff is falling apart before our very eyes. However, the Yankees are still the best team in the AL East and it's likely only a matter of time before things start to turn around. German has been the Yanks best pitcher this season and he's probably going to be the guy to help right this ship, if anybody is... The New York Yankees and the decent sized plus money has some nice value.
