The Boston Red Sox will host the New York Yankees for a divisional doubleheader this Thursday from Fenway Park.

Yankees Preview & Projected Starter

New York moved to 73-72 after defeating Boston. The Yankees good stretch of late-season play continued on Tuesday with a pair of wins, and they’ll attempt to steal a few more here. The New York offense is scoring 3.87 runs per game, while batting .230, with a .300 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.87 ERA, with a 1.25 WHIP. 

Michael King (4-5, 2.92 ERA, 100 Ks) is set to open for New York. The fifth-year pitcher has served as a reliable arm out of the Yanks bullpen this season, and he’s found himself a role as a spot starter as of late. King has held teams scoreless in eight of his last thirteen appearances, while pitching five innings of one-run ball in back-to-back starts.

Yankees Player Trends & Props

Gleyber Torres has produced runs in both matchups with Boston, and he’s leading NYY in hits (141), while posting splits of .271/25/65.

Aaron Judge has recorded a hit in six of the last nine games, and he’s leading the Yanks in homers (31), with 58 RBI.

Giancarlo Stanton homered in the game three win, and he’s tallied 23 home runs and 57 runs batted in for the season. 

Anthony Volpe is posting similar totals of 20 home runs and 58 RBI.


Red Sox Preview & Projected Starter

Boston moved to 73-72 after falling to New York. The Red Sox dropped both contests on Tuesday, and they’ll look to get back into the win column during this doubleheader. The Boston offense is 4.18 scoring runs per game, while batting .264, with a .331 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.89 ERA, with a 1.34 WHIP. 

Tanner Houck (4-9, 5.28 ERA, 80 Ks) will get the ball for Boston. The fourth-year pitcher struggled with Baltimore at home last week, allowing five runs in 5.1 innings pitched en rough to his ninth loss of the season. Houck has been a mixed bag since returning late last month, and after allowing three runs or more in three of those four starts, he’ll attempt to turn things around here against the Yanks. 

Red Sox Player Trends & Props

Rafael Devers has doubled in five of the last eight games, and he’s is first on the team in HR (29) and RBI (93). 

Justin Turner has produced a run in four of the previous seven games, and he’s posting strong splits of .285/23/94, with 142 hits. 

Masataka Yoshida had three hits in the game one defeat, and he leads the Sox in hits (134), with splits of .295/13/62. 

Corey’s Free Pick G1:

The Yankees are going to have a chance to steal the first contest with Tanner Houck set to go for Boston. Houck has been very inconsistent this season, and if the Yanks come in swinging the way they have been, they can win this contest. NYY’s team total may be more in play, but back the Yankees for game one.

Corey’s Free Pick G2:

With neither club set to name a starter for the night spot in game two, I like both sides finding their way to production in the series finale. Both teams find themselves on the outside looking in, in regards to the playoff picture, but this Red Sox/Yankees, and I believe their final matchup of 2023 gives us some good baseball. Back the Over for game two.

Corey’s Pick G1: Yankees ML/ G2: Over
