The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Yankee Stadium. The Red Sox were able to knock off the Yankees 5-4 in extra innings in the first game. 

The Red Sox sit with a 48-43 record overall and after a slow start to the season they have been playing better the last few months. The Red Sox have leaned on the offense to turn around the season and they are currently averaging 4.69 runs per game which is 6th best in baseball. Trevor Story is having a big season for the Red Sox hitting 15 home runs and driving in 58 RBIs so far this season.

On the other side of this matchup is the Yankees who sit with a 62-28 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. In each of the last two games the pitching hasn’t been lights out, and they couldn’t get timely hits ate. The Yankes offense and pitching are both the tops in the MLB. Aaron Judge is earning himself an even bigger contract having hit 31 home runs and driving in 66 RBIs.

On the mound for the Boston Red Sox is Nick Pivetta who sits with an 8-6 record overall and an ERA of 4.08. In his last start against the New York Yankees, he went 3.1 innings giving up eight hits and six runs. 

On the mound for the Yankees isJameson Taillion who sits with a 9-2 record and an ERA of 4.01. In his last start, he went five innings giving up seven hits and six runs. 

The Yankees are 4-0 in Taillion’s last four Saturday starts. The over is 6-0 in the Yankees last six games against the American League East. The over is 5-0 in Pivetta’s last five games overall. 

These are both pitchers that are coming off bad starts and all the trends for both of these teams point towards the over. Pivetta gave up six runs in his last start and there will be no shortage of scoring here. It wouldn’t shock me if both teams go over eight runs, and the over cashes with ease.
