I look for the Red Sox to play well in this one. They need to keep winning if they wish to stay atop their division.
The Red Sox have played like the better team this year and they have had success against the Yankees head to head. I look for that to continue on Friday.
If Perez is on, he should be able to keep the Yankees in check. The Boston offense should be able to hit around the Yankees starter enough to get a win.
I like the Red Sox on the moneyline in this one.
