New York Yankees
The Yankees would be in the postseason if the playoffs were to start today, but not by much. New York is five back of the Red Sox in the AL East, and above the Angels and Twins by 3.5 games for the first wildcard spot in the AL. The Yankees don’t need another loss like the one they took in game one, 9-6.
Sonny Gray (7-7, 3.37 ERA) will make his fourth start for the Yankees this season. Gray has pitched decent in his first three start with the Yankees. He is 1-2 with a 3.00 ERA since becoming a Yankee. In his last start, he got the 5-4 win against the Mets at Citi Field. Earning his first win in pinstripes.
Boston Red Sox
Boston controls their own destiny as far as playoff seeding. The Red Sox would have to fall off a cliff in order to lose their five game AL East lead over the Yankees. Winning game one, only helped the Red Sox chances at the division crown.
Rick Porcello (7-14, 4.59 ERA) will be making his fourth start of the year against the Yankees. Porcello is 0-3 with a 3.79 ERA in those three starts against the Yankees. The New York bats have averaged .278 against Porcello over 19 innings pitched this season.
