The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox meet Friday in MLB action at Fenway Park.

The New York Yankees look to build on their eight-game winning streak. The Yankees have scored 33 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Yankees have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 57 hits and 23 RBI while Luke Voit and Gio Urshela have combined for 82 hits and 69 RBI. Jordan Montgomery gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 4.76 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season. Montgomery is 1-0 with a 3.42 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.

The Boston Red Sox look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Red Sox have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Red Sox have split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Alex Verdugo leads the Red Sox with 58 hits and 14 RBI while Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts have combined for 106 hits and 62 RBI. Martin Perez gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 4.33 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. Perez is 2-3 with a 9.85 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.


The Yankees are 83-39 in their last 122 games as a favorite, 1-4 in their last 5 games as a road favorite and 1-5 in their last 6 road games. The Red Sox are 10-21 in their last 31 games on grass, 15-36 in their last 51 games as an underdog and 9-24 in their last 33 home games. The under is 4-1 in Yankees last 5 road games. The over is 4-1 in Red Sox last 5 overall. The Yankees are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Boston and 21-5 in the last 26 meetings.

Jordan Montgomery has allowed six earned runs and 15 hits in his last 9.2 innings while Martin Perez has allowed seven earned runs and 13 hits in his last 16.2 innings. Montgomery isn't a pitcher I'm looking to lay these big numbers with, but the Yankees are playing their best ball of the season with a red hot offense, and that offense could remain hot with them finally healthy. Not stepping in front of the Yanks. Give me the Yankees and the RL.
