Probable Pitcher: Gerrit Cole (7-2, 2.99 ERA)
Cole will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for New York. Cole (7-2) earned the win in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Guardians, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out six batters. He has a record of 5-3 with an ERA of 4.00 and 73 strikeouts in 11 appearances versus the Red Sox in his career.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox get here with a 45-37 record and have lost 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.72 runs per game. They're batting for .261 AVG, 383 runs scored in 740 hits and 77 home runs, ranking #6 in offense in the league, behind the NY Mets.

Probable Pitcher: Josh Winckowski (3-2, 3.12 ERA)
Winckowski will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the A's. Winckowski took the loss against the Cubs on Saturday, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts in six innings. He hasn't pitched against the Yankees in his career.
NY Yankees are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games against Boston.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of NY Yankees' last 8 games when playing on the road against Boston.
Boston Red Sox are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Boston's last 14 games against NY Yankees.
The Yankees destroyed the Pirates in their last game scoring 16 runs while allowing none. They're the 2nd best offense in the league and #1 defense. Gerrit Cole will get the ball for this game and he's been dominant on the mound in his last 4 starts allowing 4 runs in his last 26.1 innings pitched. The Red Sox have struggled lately as they have 4 of their last 6 games and are 1-2 against the Yankees this season. Winckowski has done a decent job so far but hasn't faced an offense like the Yankees. The Red Sox are no rivals this year for the bombers so take the Yankees to win.
