Red Sox drops third
The Red Sox lost its third straight game on Friday, suffering a 4-1 loss at New York. Boston is now 29-28 on the season, 15-16 on the road and 32-23 with the over. The Red Sox have Rick Porcello on the mound today. He is 4-4 on the season with a 4.41 ERA.
Chris Sale took his seventh loss of the season on Friday night. He gave up four runs over six innings and had 10 strikeouts with one walk. Rafael Devers drove in the lone run for Boston on a solo home run, his eighth of the season. Jackie Bradley Jr. had two hits for Boston in the loss.
Yankees take the opener
New York picked up the 4-1 win at home over Boston for a second straight win and eighth win in 10 games. The Yankees are now 37-19 on the season, 20-11 at home and 29-24 with the over. Domingo German gets the start for the Yankees today. He is 9-1 on the season with a 3.43 ERA.
J.A. Happ got the win for the Yankees on Friday. He improved to 5-3 on the season, allowing just one run on three hits. Aroldis Chapman earned his 16th save of the season by pitching a perfect ninth. DJ LeMahieu had a double, a home run and two RBI to lead the Yankees at the plate. Aaron Hicks also drove in two runs in the victory.
MLB Betting Trends
The Red Sox have won seven of Porcello’s last eight starts and 5-2 in their last seven division games.
The Yankees are 20-8 in their last 28 games following a win and 6-1 in German’s last seven starts.
German was on a tear early, but has struggled lately. He gave up seven runs to the Royals in his last start and has allowed three runs or more in four of his last six starts. Porcello has been chipping away at his ERA and leading Boston to wins over the last six weeks. He is getting deep into games and I think he can cause a lot of problems for New York tonight. The Yankees are still without a lot of powerful hitters and German is trending backwards. I like Boston to get the upset today.
MLB Prediction: Boston Red Sox +120
