Preview

The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees will play the third game of the series at the Fenway Park on Saturday. The Yankees outscored the Red Sox 12-5 in the second game of the series to take the lead 2-0. Josh Donaldson hit a three-run homer in a four-run first inning, Matt Carpenter homered among three hits

New York Yankees

The Yankees get here with a 61-23 record and have won 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 5 runs per game. They're batting for .242 AVG, 421 runs scored in 658 hits and 139 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Aaron Judge leads the team and is batting for .287 with 30 home runs and 64 RBI.

Defensively they are allowing 3 runs per game and rank #1 in the league. Nestor Cortes allowed 4 runs against the Red Sox and still leads the pitching staff with a 2.74 ERA, 95 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded with the Yanks.

Probable Pitcher:  Jordan Montgomery (3-2, 3.19 ERA)

Montgomery will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for New York. Montgomery allowed one run on three hits and three walks in five innings against Cleveland, striking out eight. He has a 1-2 record with an ERA of 3.97 and 54 strikeouts in 12 appearances against the Red Sox in his career.

Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox get here with a 45-39 record and have lost 6 of their last 8 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. Rafael Devers is leading the team with 19 home runs and 51 RBI, batting for .327 AVG while Trevor Story leads in RBI's with 54. 

Defensively they are allowing 4.02 runs per game and rank #11 in the league. Nick Pivetta leads the team with 8 wins recorded with a 3.68 ERA and 95 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:  Kutter Crawford (2-2, 5.04 ERA)

Crawford will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the A's. Crawford served as a bulk reliever Monday against Tampa Bay and struck out eight in 5.1 innings. Since Boston's starters continue to deal with injuries, the right-hander will make his third major-league start of the season Saturday. He has a 1-1 record with an ERA of 0.00 and 3 strikeouts in 2 appearances versus the Yankees in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

NY Yankees are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games against Boston.

NY Yankees are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Boston.

Boston Red Sox are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Boston's last 7 games against an opponent in the American League.

Prediction

As I predicted the Yankees destroyed the Red Sox and they will continue to dominate them. The Red Sox are dealing with injuries in their rotation so they'll send Kutter Crawford to the mound who had a great performance in his last start against the Rays but the it will be tough to hold on 5 innings against the bombers. Montogomery will get the ball for the Yankees and he has been effective against the Red Sox. Take the Yankees again.

PICK: Yankees ML (-160)
