Red Sox lose fourth straight
The Red Sox lost a fourth straight game on Saturday night in a 5-3 loss to the Yankees. Boston is now 29-29 on the season, 15-17 on the road and 32-24 with the over. The Red Sox have David Price taking the mound today. He is 2-2 on the season with a 2.83 ERA.
The Red Sox had 11 hits on Saturday, but stranded 10 runners in the loss. Rick Porcello struggled on the mound, giving up five runs in 4.2 innings of work. The bullpen then pitched 3.1 innings of scoreless ball, but Boston couldn’t find any runs. Xander Bogaerts had a solo home run for Boston and finished with three hits and two runs. Sandy Leon had three hits and drove in two runs.
Yankees looking for sweep
New York has won three straight games following Saturday’s win over the Red Sox. The Yankees are now 38-19 on the season, 21-11 at home and 29-25 with the under. CC Sabathia is taking the mound today. He is 3-1 on the season with a 3.48 ERA.
Gary Sanchez had a two-run home run in the fifth inning to break a 3-3 tie. Sanchez now has 18 home runs with 35 RBI. DJ LeMahieu also drove in a pair of runs while Kendrys Morales had three hits. Domingo German didn’t pitch very well, giving up three runs over 3.2 innings, but the New York Bullpen pitched 5.1 innings of scoreless ball. Aroldis Chapman earned his 17th save of the season with a scoreless ninth.
MLB Betting Trends
The Red Sox are 2-8 in their last 10 against winning teams, but they have won Price’s last five Sunday starts.
The Yankees have won eight of their last 10 Game 3’s in a series and 6 of Sabathia’s last 8 starts.
Sabathia isn’t getting deep into games, as he usually levels out around five innings. He has given up multiple runs in five of his last six starts. Price hasn’t allowed an earned run over his last 11.2 innings. The Yankees had to use a lot of arms last night, which could be a problem tonight with Sabathia starting. New York is going to have to either run him long, or go deep into their pen, which I think will be a problem. Boston has a lot of potential on offense, just hasn’t had a lot of breakthrough hits lately. I think Price will keep this game close and then Boston will find the key hits later in the contest.
