Preview

It's derby time again as the Yankees are back at Fenway Park for a three-game tilt against their old rivals the Boston Red Sox.  Both teams are still in the hunt for a Wild Card spot to sneak into the postseason and they're only separated by 2 games.  The Yankees are on a 3 game-winning run after sweeping the Rangers.  Those results keep them within touching distance of Boston in the AL East and in the Wild Card race.  The Red Sox have won their last 7 in a row where they're averaging 8.43 runs per game which keeps them in the lead for an AL Wild Card position.  The Rays have already clinched a playoff spot from this division but both the Yankees and the Red Sox are still in a good position to earn the AL Wild Card spots.  The stakes are high for both clubs at this point, both playoff position and pride are at stake. 

Pitching matchup

Yankees

Gerrit Cole (15-8, 3.03 ERA) Gerrit Cole will be back on the mound for the Bronx Bombers.  One of the best pitchers in the league, Cole is a career 3.17 ERA pitcher and has gone 3.03 this season.  Now in his second year as a Yankee, the former Astro leads the league in wins and complete games in 2021.  He's faced the Red Sox 3 times this season and has a 1-2 record.  In those games, he pitched for 16 innings surrendering 19 hits for 9 ERs and claimed 25 strikeouts as compared to 6 walks.

Red Sox

Nathan Eovaldi (10-8, 3.58 ERA) Nathan Eovaldi will take the mound for the Red Sox tonight.  The veteran pitcher now in his 10th season is a career 4.16 ERA pitcher with a sub 4.00 this year going at 3.58.  He leads the league in games started and has pitched 173.2 innings giving up 171 hits resulting in 69 Ers.  Eovaldi in 31.1 innings against the Yankees this season has given up 31 hits for 7 ERs and walked 2 batters while striking out 34.

Prediction

The last time these teams met in New York, the Yankees were swept and the last time they came to Fenway they lost 3-1.  The Red Sox bats have been unstoppable recently and the Yankees themselves are averaging 6 runs per game in their winning streak.  The way the Red Sox have been recently, its hard to imagine this one going under.

PICK: Over 9 (-108)
