Baseball’s all-time rivalry is about to say goodbye to one of the most prolific players in its history, Alex Rodriguez.
The Yankees will look to say bye to A-Rod in his last series with the team.
The Red Sox will stay out of the A-Rod farewell and worry about the playoff run they are looking to make.
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees lineup has now dropped since letting go of Carlos Beltran. They are now led by Didi Gregorius.
Gregorius is hitting .285 on the season with 22 doubles and a now team high 49 RBIs. Jacoby Ellsbury is hitting .272 on the season with 25 doubles and 35 RBIs.
Brian McCann is leading the team in home runs with 15; he also has 45 RBIs to go with a .231 average. The Yankees will look to send A-Rod off on a good note in the rivalry.
The Yankees have Michael Pineda on the mound Thursday against the Red Sox. Pineda is currently 6-10 on the season with a 5.17 E.R.A. and 149 strikeouts.
He last pitched against the Cleveland Indians where he was victorious. Pineda pitched in 6 innings where he gave up 4 earned runs on 6 hits.
He walked 1 batter and struck out 6 in the win last week.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox lineup has been very strong for most of this season. They are led by shortstop Xander Bogaerts is hitting .317 on the season with 25 doubles and has driven in 68 runs on the season.
Mookie Betts is hitting .310 to go along with 60 extra base hits and 74 RBIs. David Ortiz is having a fantastic final season where he is hitting .309 with 25 dingers and 88 runs batted in.
The Red Sox look to ruin A-Rod’s farewell.
The Sox have Steven Wright on the bump Thursday and he has looked real good. Wright is currently 13-5 on the season with a 3.01 E.R.A. and 123 strikeouts.
He was victorious in a very good last start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Wright pitched a complete game shut out where he only gave up 3 hits.
He struck out 9 and walked only 1 in the big time win; he looks to continue his pitching success.

Free New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
This matchup will always be interesting due to the rivalry that comes with it. Look for the Red Sox to continue to win this series for this season.
The Red Sox lineup is head and shoulders better than the Yankees and I see that being the difference. I look for the Sox lineup to take care of Pineda early and often in this one.
Wright will do enough to pick up the win, but the Yankees lineup won’t be much of a threat.
