The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Yankees have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The New York Yankees have won 11 straight games when scoring more than two runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 174 hits and 90 RBI while Gleyber Torres and Gio Urshela have combined for 268 hits and 150 RBI. James Paxton gets the ball, and he is 12-6 with a 4.16 ERA and 168 strikeouts this season. Paxton is 4-1 with a 3.32 ERA and 49 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Boston Red Sox need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Red Sox have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Boston Red Sox have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Rafael Devers leads the Red Sox with 178 hits and 107 RBI while Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts have combined for 329 hits and 181 RBI. Eduardo Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 17-5 with a 3.81 ERA and 168 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 6-5 with a 4.03 ERA and 70 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series, 48-15 in their last 63 vs. American League East and 7-0 in Paxton's last 7 starts. The Red Sox are 19-7 in their last 26 Monday games, 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 42-11 in Rodriguez's last 53 starts. The Yankees are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Rodriguez's last 7 starts overall. The over is 15-5-1 in Paxton's last 21 starts overall.
Paxton has allowed 25 hits and 14 runs in his last 42.1 innings, and he has a 4.80 ERA and .286 allowed batting average on the road. Rodriguez has allowed 45 hits and 14 runs in his last 44 innings, and he has a 3.24 ERA and .232 allowed batting average at home. The New York Yankees haven't lost with Paxton on the mound since July 26, and it seems like he's been getting stronger with each start since August. The Yanks have also controlled most of this series and seem like a team that's eager to finish with the best record in baseball, while the Red Sox have been sloppy at times and appear to have accepted their fait. I'll take the Yankees and the cheap price.
