The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Yankee Stadium. In the first game of this series it was the Yankees that won 6-5 in the 11th inning.
The Boston Red Sox jumped out early to a 3-0 lead in the first inning but couldn’t hang on and ended up losing in extra innings. Rafael Devers was the guy who helped them jump out to the lead with a two run home run. Xander Bogaerts also had a big game finishing with three hits, two runs and one RBI. The bullpen wasn’t awful against the Yankees and it was more the offense in extra innings that let them down.
The New York Yankees didn’t get the best start from Gerrit Cole but the offense kept chipping away at the lead and then in extra innings it was newcomer Josh Donaldson that sent the fans home happy. Anthony Rizzo hit a home run that drove in two runs. Giancarlo Stanton also hit a home run. The Yankees finished with nine hits and they are going to lean on the longball plenty in this game.
Getting the start for the Red Sox will be Nick Pivetta and last season with the team he finished with a 9-8 record and an ERA of 4.53.
On the mound for the Yankees will be Luis Severino and he is coming back from injury and he has dealt with some soreness during spring training. During his career Severino has a 43-26 record and an ERA of 3.43.
The Red Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. the American League East. The Red Sox are 8-2 in their last 10 games vs. a right-handed starter.The Red Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 road games vs. a right-handed starter. The Red Sox are 1-6 in their last seven games against the Yankees. The under is 10-3-1 in the last 14 meetings between the two teams.
I expect there is going to be a little rust from Severino and the REd Sox should find some offensive success against him. Nick Pivetta also had some issues during the 2021 season and the Yankees should hit a few out of the park against him. Look for this to be a higher scoring game and for the over to cash.
