The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Fenway Park. On Thursday it was the Yankees that were able to secure the 6-5 victory. There were zero runs scored by either team after the 5th inning. 

The Yankees sit with a 60-23 record overall and they have won two games in a row. Two games ago against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Yankees offense had quite the game scoring 16 runs. The Yankees are averaging 5.15 runs per game which is the best in baseball and it’s going to be important the offense is good again in this game. Aaron Judge has hit 30 home runs and driven in 64 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Red Sox who sit with a 45-38 record overall and have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games they are giving up an average of 6.5 runs and they are going to need to get better pitching in this game. Overall the Red Sox are giving up 4.05 runs per game which is 11th in the league. Trevor Story is having a big season hitting 14 home runs and driving in 54 RBIs.

On the mound for the Yankees is Nestor Cortes Jr who sits with a 7-3 record and an ERA 2.44. In his last start against Cleveland, he went six innings, giving up three hits and one run.

The Red Sox are 4-1 in their last five games on Friday. The Yankees are 7-1 in their last eight games on Friday. The over is 6-1-1 in the Red Sox's last eight games on Friday. The under is 4-1-1 in the Red Sox last six home games. The under is 5-1-1 in the Red Sox last seven games against a right-handed starter. 

Cortes got back on the right track in the last game, and I just trust this Yankees offense more than I do the Red Sox. The Yankees are averaging 5.15 runs per game and they will find enough scoring here to win their second game of this series. Back the Yankees.
