New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox Preview

1. The Yankees had their 3-game winning streak snapped in their last game.
2. The Red Sox rank 2nd in the Majors in runs scored.
3. The Yankees are 0-7 in Sabathia’s last 7 starts.

This season the Red Sox are 6-4 at home and the Yankees are 7-3 on the road.

[dfads params=’groups=63744&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

In their last games the Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1 and the Yankees lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2.

The Yankees are in first place in the AL East, but in a clogged division early in the season they are only 1 game up on the Rays, Red Sox, and Orioles. They head to Fenway tonight in the biggest rivalry in baseball and are a slight road underdog.

The Yankees have won 4 of their last 5 games against the Red Sox in Boston.

Sabathia is in the middle of the longest losing streak of his career and in the last 7 games he has started the Yankees have not won once. His ERA is close to 6 this season, but he has been pretty good on the road in his 2 starts, but has failed to get run support from the offense.

In his last outing Sabathia was at home and got shelled facing the New York Mets giving up 7 earned runs in 5 innings of work in a 8-2 loss.

In Sabathia’s 2 road starts this season the Yankees have only combined to score 4 runs.

The Yankees are 5-11 in Sabathia’s last 16 starts as a road underdog.

Justin Masterson goes for the Red Sox tonight and they had won their first 3 games on the season with him getting the starting nod, but lost their last one. In that game Masterson went 7 innings and gave up 3 earned runs in a 5-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

These 2 teams met in the 2nd series of the season where the Yankees lost 2 of 3 games. Masterson did not get a start in this series and he is 0-2 in his last 2 starts against them where he has given up 12 runs in only 8 innings of work.

The Red Sox are 8-1 in Masterson’s last 9 home starts.

In the early part of the season the Yankees have been all around solid ranking 6th in the Majors in runs scored and 5th in team ERA.

I don’t look for a pitcher’s duel tonight, but with the offense that the Red Sox have I think they will tag up Sabathia and Boston will take Game 1 of this series.
