This HUGE rivalry late in the season means a lot to the Yankees, how are in the playoff race while the Red Sox are out of the playoff picture. With 7 games left
the Yankees are 4 games back of the Toronto Blue Jays in the AL East, but are 4.5 games up on the Houston Astros for the top AL Wild Card slot.
The Red Sox have to finish strong to be above .500 for the season and they are coming off a 3-game sweep over the Baltimore Orioles. New York has won 2 straight and 6 of their last 10 games.
The Yankees have won 10 of their last 13 games facing the Red Sox.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox have had a solid season at the plate ranking 3rd in runs scored, but their pitching has been the issue this season ranking 25th in team ERA. However,
the pitching has been solid as of late and they have a 29 scoreless inning streak going.
Eduardo Rodriguez takes the hill for the Red Sox and in his last outing he gave up 3 earned runs in 6 innings in a 8-7 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Yankees rank 2nd in the Majors in runs scored and 14th in team ERA. New York starter Ivan Nova was out of the rotation after struggling, but is back since Ace Masahiro Tanaka out of commission with an injury.
In his last outing he gave up only 1 earned run in 5 innings, but the offense did not help him out in a 4-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.
