Matchup | Preview

The Red Sox are starting to get healthy, but they’ll have to make a major charge to get into the playoffs this season. Let’s take a look at the first game of this series.

Boston has lost five of their last six games coming into this key matchup. Boston has gotten Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford back in the lineup in the past couple weeks. The Red Sox did lose David Ortiz though right around the same time, so they aren’t completely healthy. Ortiz was the team’s best hitter so far this season, and they need him back as soon as possible. Though they have been short-handed, the offense ranks third in the majors in runs scored. Boston’s pitching staff has really let them down this year. The Red Sox top starter this season has been rookie Felix Doubront, and his ERA is a pedestrian 4.54.


New York only went 2-5 in their seven game trip to the West Coast. Still, the Yankees great play over the last couple months has put some serious separation between them and the rest of the AL East. The Yankees lead the majors with 153 home runs. Curtis Granderson leads the team with 27 long balls. Robinson Cano started off the season slowly, but he is all the way up to a .319 average and 22 home runs on the year. Alex Rodriguez is on the disabled list and will this series. Ichiro Suzuki will get his first taste of the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry after being traded to the Yankees earlier this week. Ichiro’s trade to the Yankees caught a lot of people off guard, but he should be a nice acquisition for the Yankees.

Phil Hughes has pitched much better of late, and Aaron Cook just doesn’t have the type of stuff to shut down this Yankees lineup. Look for New York to pile up the runs here.
