The Bronx Bombers host the most powerful offense in the league Sunday evening.
The Red Sox continue to lead the league in runs per game with 5.6 per game and show no signs of slowing down.
The Yankees score just 4.2 runs per game but have been a bit hotter as of late by scoring 21 over their last 3 games.
David Price takes the mound for the visiting Sox who is now 9-6 with a 4.34 ERA and 1.19 WHIP.
Masahiro Tanaka takes the mound for the Yanks and is 6-2 with a 3.23 ERA and 1.11 WHIP.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox are red hot again, they slowed down just for a short while but have now won 7 of their last 8 games.
They’ve scored 54 runs during this 8 game stretch. They’ve averaged almost 7 runs per game!
The Red Sox not only lead the league in runs per game but lead in team batting average, slugging percentage and on base percentage!
David Price has pitched excellent for the Red Sox after a slow start to the season. Since May 24th he’s allowed 3 or less in all of his outings except 2.
He had one very poor outing against the Rangers on June 24th where he allowed 6 over just 2.1 innings but has since bounced back.
In his most recent outing against the Rays, he pitched 8 innings of shutout ball. It’s the Rays though, so nothing to get too excited about.
He’s contained a lot of the better offensive teams during this stretch, including the Orioles, Mariners, and Jays.
The Yankees have found their bats for a little bit but it hasn’t been their season norm and will likely not continue.
They’ve won 3 of their last 5 games but their season has been a mirror of their record, win one then lose one.
The Bronx Bombers are very capable of putting up big runs any given game, which they have proved to do multiple times this month and especially at home but the Red Sox just dominate them in run production regardless.
Tanaka has been outstanding this season. Whenever he is on the mound, the team has a real shot at winning.
He’s been roughed up a few times in his last 6 outings though.
He’s given up 7, 6, and 5 runs in 3 of those 6 starts. His worst of those three outings came in his most recent outing, giving up 7 in 4.2 innings and 10 hits to the Indians.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
Red Sox vs Yankees I am taking Red Sox almost every game this season.
This game is no different, Red Sox hold the edge in both run production and pitching.
The pitching is arguable but Price has been more consistent than Tanaka and it’s an even match up at best with Red Sox owning the offense.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Red Sox ML
I don’t expect this to be super high scoring just because you have two quality pitchers on the mound who can shut the offense down any game.
However, both teams are hitting well right now and Red Sox are basically always hitting well.
The line might be 7.5 so I would consider taking over 7.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Red Sox 5-4
