Boston Red Sox
Garrett Whitlock, who is taking the mound for the Red Sox, has been struggling this season. His ERA stands at 5.61, and WHIP at 1.29 in 25.2 innings pitched. The right-hander needs to improve his control to keep the Yankees' hitters at bay.
Rafael Devers leads the team with 13 home runs and 50 RBIs. Masataka Yoshida has been impressive at the plate with a .318 average. However, the Red Sox batting lineup has struggled recently, and they need to be at their best to challenge the Yankees’ pitching.
The Red Sox have some injury concerns. Wilyer Abreu and Mikey Romero are day-to-day, while Adam Duvall and Trevor Story are on the 60-day injured list. Yu Chang is also sidelined with a 10-day IL.
New York Yankees
For the Yankees, Gerrit Cole will be the starting pitcher. He boasts a commendable 7-0 record with a 2.82 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over 79.2 innings. However, Cole has historically struggled against the Red Sox. His ability to navigate through their lineup will be critical.
Aaron Judge has been the standout player for the Yankees with 19 home runs and a .291 average. However, the Yankees will miss his services as he is on the 10-day injured list. The Yankees will need others to step up in his absence.
The Yankees have significant injury worries. Aaron Judge, as mentioned, is on the 10-day IL. Carlos Rodon and Ryan Weber are on the 60-day IL, and Nestor Cortes and Ian Hamilton are on the 15-day IL.
With Gerrit Cole’s historical struggle against the Red Sox and Garrett Whitlock's lackluster season, it's likely that there will be a decent number of runs scored in this game. Taking into account the recent performances and injuries of both teams, the best bet for this game seems to be the over of 8 runs.
