MLB FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest MLB trends, the Yankees are 10-4 in their last 14 games versus an American League East and 9-4 in their last 13 games after scoring two runs or less in their previous contest.
The Yankees are looking to bounce back from a terrible performance on Saturday from Hughes and the bullpen. Even though they went a combined 1-for-7 on Saturday, Kevin Youkilis and Mark Teixeiraare back healthy for the Yankees, while Boston is playing with Jackie Bradley Jr. in centerfield because Jacoby Ellsbury has a strained groin. While both teams have their injury issues, the Yankees are getting healthier. They are also sending their most consistent pitcher to the mound in Hirkoki Kuroda. The Japanese right-hander has allowed just eight run in his last four starts against the Red Sox. He is 6-3 with a 2.39 ERA this year and shut out the Mets in seven innings in his last start on May 28, though he got a no-decision as the Mets won 2-1. Clay Buchholz is 7-0 this year but hasn't pitched since May 22. He was scratched due to a shoulder issue and is expected to start. He has allowed 14 runs in his last three starts against the Yankees, including eight on October 1 of 2012. Expect the Yankees to rebound from Saturday's performance with a win on Sunday night.
