Luke Voit was a perfect 4-for-4 with two home runs, four runs scored and three RBIs. Luis Severino picked up the win as he surrendered one earned run on six hits with six strikeouts and one walk.
Martinez has three-hit night
J.D. Martinez was a perfect 3-for-3 in Wednesday night's loss at New York. Eduardo Nunez was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. David Price suffered the loss as he allowed six runs (four earned) on five hits with two strikeouts and four walks over 5 1/3 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The under is 5-1-2 in the last eight Red Sox games overall. Boston is 2-8 in its last 10 meetings in New York.
The Yankees are 70-29 in their last 99 home games. New York is 46-21 in Tanaka's last 67 home starts.
Tanaka has been excellent this month, throwing 14 shutout innings in his last two starts and giving up only one earned run in 21 September innings. Look for him to continue that success tonight as he is typcailly strong at home and backed by a Yankees squad that wins way more often than it loses in the Bronx.
