Boston Red Sox
Recently on the cusp of Wild Card contention, but now amid a five game winless drought, Boston sits four games behind Tampa Bay for the AL’s final postseason slot. After suffering bookend losses vs. tonight’s opponent New York while being swept by the D-Rays, the defending World Champs are up against it.
In need of a win tonight, Boston sends lefty Brian Johnson (1-1, 6.43 ERA) out to open in the Bronx. Most recently, Johnson pitched five innings of one-run ball before Toronto struck late, winning 8-7. The Red Sox are 2-5 this season when Johnson appears.
Fading as the Autumn months approach, Boston is a team facing crossroads challenges. Obviously, playing in New York opposite the AL’s odds-on World Series favorite only makes life more difficult for a Red Sox group which has struggled all year to find sustained momentum.
New York Yankees
Those AL darling Yankees are 3-1, including a Friday night win over tonight’s opponent Boston, since suffering three straight losses vs. the Red Sox. Gleyber Torres’ first inning grand slam provided all the offense needed for the Yankees to cruise past a skidding Red Sox unit in their latest series opener.
After starting 2019 6-1 opposite division rival Boston, New York is just 1-3 since against the Sox. Though, Friday’s win offers a bit of motivation coming into this evening’s encounter for Aaron Boone’s men.
With a banged up pitching staff, usual middle reliever Chad Green (2-3, 5.06 ERA) opens tonight for the AL East leading Yankees. New York is a perfect 8-0 this season when Green starts and 24-12 when the RHP appears.
However, when they last faced on July 27, Boston reached Green while earning five hits and four runs through two innings. The Sox exited that contest a 9-5 winner.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
Anytime New York and Boston face, the baseball world’s eyes are transfixed on the outcome. And though tonight’s meeting features marquee names, the opening pitchers are obscured by anonymity.
That stated, New York’s offensive roll will continue as Boston adds runs but struggles to keep pace with a Yankees squad which is currently a step ahead.
