The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees will play the 3rd game of the series at the Fenway Park on Sunday. The Yankees took the win 3-2 in the second game of the series. Isiah Kiner-Falefa drove in the go-ahead run with a safety squeeze in the ninth inning and hit his first career homer with New York.
New York Yankees
The Yankees get here with a 72-42 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 5.28 runs per game. They're batting for .244 AVG, 591 runs scored in 919 hits and 190 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league, behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Aaron Judge leads the team and is batting for .301 with 45 home runs and 99 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.47 runs per game and rank #3 in the league. All-Star Nestor Cortes leads the pitching staff with a 2.67 ERA, 125 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded with the Yanks.
Probable Pitcher: Jameson Taillon (11-2, 3.95 ERA)
Taillon will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for New York. Taillon allowed three runs on three hits and three walks over seven innings Monday, striking out six and earning a win over the Mariners. He is 3-0 with an ERA of 2.78 and 24 strikeouts in 6 appearances against the Red Sox in his career.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox get here with a 56-59 record and have lost 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.50 runs per game. They're batting for .253 AVG, 504 runs scored in 977 hits and 111 home runs, ranking #12 in offense in the league, behind the Minnesota Twins. Rafael Devers is leading the team with 24 home runs and 60 RBI, batting for .306 AVG.
Defensively they are allowing 4.82 runs per game and rank #25 in the league. Nick Pivetta leads the team with 8 wins recorded with a 4.51 ERA and 124 strikeouts.
Probable Pitcher: Michael Wacha (6-1, 2.69 ERA)
Wacha will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Red Sox. Red Sox manager Alex Cora said there's a "good chance" Wacha (shoulder) will be activated from the 15-day injured list Sunday against the Yankees. He is 1-1 with an ERA of 3.35 and 42 strikeouts in 8 appearances against the Yankees in his career.
NY Yankees are 4-13 SU in their last 17 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of NY Yankees' last 6 games when playing on the road against Boston.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Boston's last 9 games against NY Yankees.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Boston's last 9 games at home.
The Yankees have struggled lately as they have lost 8 of their last 10 games and 13 of their last 17 games on the road but they're 7-4 vs Red Sox this season. Jameson Taillon will start for the Yankees who has had his up and downs this season but dominated the Red Sox the last time they met. The Red Sox will send Michael Wacha to the mound who has been out of the rotation since June 28 but was good in his 2 rehab games. Taillion was pounded by the Red Sox with 6 runs earlier this season and It's uncertain con Wacha can perform so I think both offenses will score many runs on this game. Take the over.
PICK: Over 9 (-110)
