There’s never a dull moment between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankess, is there?
After the Yankees took game one of the series on Friday night with a 7-4 win, the Red Sox rallied back and held off the Yankees, coming away with a 6-5 victory that was crucial on a day that saw them extend their AL East lead once more.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox should make the postseason and it will be quite hard for them not to. With just 14 games remaining on the season they are 2.5 up in the AL East and should be slated for a Wild Card slot as well.
On Sunday they’ll send Drew Pomeranz to the hill. So far this season he has compiled a 10-12 record with a 3.25 ERA in 160.2 innings pitched.
Unfortunately since joining Boston he has seen his ERA rise .78 points and recently gave up five runs — all earned — to Baltimore on September 13 in a loss.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are on the cusp of elimination in the playoffs as they sit 7 games back in the AL East and 4 games back in the AL Wild Card.
They’ll look to C.C. Sabathia in order to secure a win on Sunday and see their playoff hopes increase. In 2016 Sabathia has been serviceable but definitely not the same as in years past.
He’s lost a bit of luster on his pitches and last faced the Red Sox on July 16, giving up five runs — four earned — in a loss.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- C.C. Sabathia’s last win came on August 23rd in a win over the Seattle Mariners where he surrendered just one run over seven innings of work.
- Pomeranz last won a game on August 20th, a win over Detroit. He has gone 0-3 since in four starts.
- The Yankees have a team BA of .239 against Pomeranz
- The Red Sox have hit .346 collectively against Sabathia in 2016
Free New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
What a game this one is turning out to be, yet alone great series. The difference for me in this one is the potential for Pomeranz to have a dominant start on the hill with extended innings.
It will be a close game but the Red Sox will come away with this one.

The Yankees need this one, it’s as simple as that. They have had a tough time putting together wins as of late and need some momentum as they leave Boston.
I’ll look for this to be a good game early on but Boston’s bats will eventually get the better of Sabathia and Pomeranz will be dominant on the hill.
It’ll be a tough loss for the Yankees and likely all but end their chances of an appearance in the 2016 playoffs.
