New York Yankees
New York out-hit Boston on Friday night but ultimately dropped its fourth in a row against the Red Sox this season, 5–3.
Most all the scoring game early, with Boston scoring three times in the bottom of the first and New York coming right back with three in the top of the second.
Neither starting pitcher made it more than four innings. Both bullpens settled things down the rest of the way until the Red Sox scored in the eighth and New York threatened in the ninth.
Zack Britton suffered what looked like a leg injury and left the game immediately. Luis Cessa came on and gave up the insurance.
Jordan Montgomery is quietly having a nice season for the Yankees. New York is 11–3 in the 14 games he has started this season and he’s pitched at least into the sixth inning in all four of his starts this month.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox didn’t see Montgomery in the first series between these two teams that they swept at Yankee Stadium earlier this month.
That sweep came in the middle of a five-game winning streak. Since then, Boston has been up and down. It lost the final two games in a series against Tampa Bay this week to relinquish first-place in the AL East.
But moving to 4–0 against the Yankees this season after Matt Barnes escaped a ninth inning jam will get Boston feeling good again.
Xander Bogaerts made a costly error at short in the Yankees’ big second inning but the bullpen really picked up the rest of the club.
The three guys who led up to Barnes combined to give up exactly one hit and one walk each in 4.1 innings (Sawamura, Whitlock, Ottavino).
Hunter Renfroe reached base three times and twice drove in a run in addition to throwing out yet another runner on the bases when he gunned down Gio Urshela at the place for the first out of the second inning.
Nathan Eovaldi did not miss the Yankees in the first series between these two teams this season. He gave up eight hits but didn’t walk a batter and got through six innings with just one earned run allowed.

New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: New York evens the series.
Boston won as a small underdog on Friday night. New York will do the same on Saturday.
Gary Sanchez had a quiet enough game on Friday but he’s been hot of late and it doesn’t feel like he’s cooled yet.
With him and the return of Luke Voit padding the middle of the lineup, the Yankees are as dangerous on offense as they have been this season.
4* Free MLB Pick: New York (Even Money)
Of course, as the underdog, New York is getting the run-and-a-half on the runline. A savvy move here may be the lay 1.5 with New York, if possible. The Yankees may open this one up.
