Boston Red Sox
I expected the under to come in on Wednesday night, just not in an 8-0 Yankee win.
CC Sabathia shut Boston down for eight innings and 95 pitches. He was perturbed when Joe Girardi offered him a handshake after setting the Sox down 1-2-3 in the eighth, having allowed only five baserunners to that point.
Rick Porcello had one rough inning again in an otherwise good outing. He pitched into the seventh and gave up four of his five runs in the fourth inning, three of them on one mighty swing by Chris Carter.
David Price starts the rubber match.
He was good in his first start of the season a couple weeks ago now and he was even better in his last. Price gave up three hits and just one solo home run in seven innings against the Orioles.
New York Yankees
The Yankees’ lineup, especially on lefties because of Gardner’s and Gregorious’ abilities to handle the lefty-lefty matchup. Gregorious has been impressive this season. He’s hitting .319, which is more than 50 points above his career average.
Based on the ABs he’s putting together, he may sustain something above .300 all season.
I also love the way Michael Pineda is throwing the ball this season. He got knocked around a bit in his last start up in Toronto but was on a five-game quality start streak prior to that.
He’s seemed to find the right balance between pitching to contact and trying to strike guys out.
He still has that dominant stuff that can make hitters miss but he’s more economical with his pitches this season and is getting deeper into games as a result.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: Pineda and Price get into a pitcher’s duel but you just never know.
My gut says this one is probably going low but both offenses can have their moments and I have to stay disciplined here. I have the Yankees -115 with a total of 8.5, which leaves no room for anything.
