The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Fenway Park.
The Red Sox sit with a 45-37 record overall and on Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Rays the offense only managed to score one run. Overall this season the Red Sox offense has been strong averaging 4.67 runs per game which is 7th best in the league. Trevor Story has been the story with this offense hitting 14 home runs and driving in 54 RBIs. In this game, the Red Sox needs to get the bats clicking.
On the other side of this matchup is the Yankees who sit with a 59-23 record overall but they have lost two of their last three games. The offense really struggled in the two losses and that was a bit odd with how good the offense has been this season. Overall the Yankees are averaging five runs per game which is second-best in the league. Aaron Judge is having a big season hitting 29 home runs and driving in 60 RBIs.
On the mound for the Yankees is Gerrit Cole who sits with a 7-2 record and an ERA of 2.99. In his last start against Cleveland, he went six innings, giving up three hits and two runs.
On the mound for the Red Sox will be Josh Winckowski and he sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 3.12
The Red Sox are 5-2 in their last seven home games. The Yankees are 7-1 in Cole’s last eight road starts. The over is 4-0 in Cole’s last four Thursday starts. The under is 6-1 in the Yankees last seven on grass.
The Yankees have won seven of Cole’s last eight road starts, and I expect they will improve on that number here. Cole sits with an ERA of 2.99, and the Red Sox only managed one run on Wednesday. The Yankees might not run up the score, but they will score a few runs, and that will be enough for the Yankees to secure the victory. Back the Yankees on the money line.
