Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin

J.D. Martinez accounted for all of the offense for the Red Sox on Friday against the Yankees with a two-run homer. Martinez continued to torture James Paxton by taking him deep in the first inning, but the Yankees took the lead on a grand slam from Gleyber Torres in the bottom of the frame and both sides traded zeroes after that. In fact, the Red Sox had just three hits on the night. While the club’s playoff hopes are fading, Martinez is in the midst of one of his best stretches of the season.

New York Yankees Fantasy Spin

Gleyber Torres launched a first-inning grand slam to lead the Yankees to a 4-2 victory over the Red Sox on Friday. Eduardo Rodriguez gave up a leadoff single to DJ LeMahieu and walked Aaron Judge and Edwin Encarnacion before Torres made him pay. The Yankees wouldn’t score again after that, but neither would the Red Sox. Torres finished 1-for-4 with a walk on the night. This was the second grand slam of his career, the other one coming on June 19 against the Rays. Torres is now up to 21 homers and 60 RBI on the year to go along with a .288/.355/.505 batting line.

MLB Betting Trends

Boston

The Red Sox are winless in their last five games and have dropped four of five when facing a right-handed starter.

New York

The Yankees are 61-29 in their last 90 games overall and are 41-19 in their last 60 games coming off a win.

Prediction:

The Red Sox have now dropped five of six in the Bronx and are 1-5 in Sale’s last six starts versus a team with a winning record, which includes a loss last Sunday night to these same Yankees at Fenway. The Bombers, meanwhile, are 20-6 in Domingo German’s last 26 starts, are 11-1 in his last 12 outings versus divisional rivals and are 5-0 in his last five home starts.

The Pick: New York Yankees -125
