Yankees, Red Sox Open Last Series Of Season Thursday

The New York Yankees get their last best opportunity to make up ground in the AL East when they open a four-game set with the Boston Red Sox on Thursday. The two rivals have already met 10 times since the all-star break, with the Red Sox winning six of those affairs.

Shark Bites
  • The Red Sox are 4-1 SU in their last five games against the Yankees.
  • The Red Sox are 7-2 SU in their last nine games on the road.
  • Xander Bogaerts is 4-for-25 with 10 strikeouts in his career against CC Sabathia.

Eduardo Rodriguez will hope to put his struggles behind him when he takes the bump in this one. Rodriguez has a 5.08 ERA since returning from the DL on July 17. However, the southpaw did pitch a gem against the Yankees in that span, allowing just two hits and no runs in 6.0 innings.

Unlike his counterpart Thursday, CC Sabathia has actually looked better since a short stint on the DL. The big southpaw has allowed three runs in 13.0 innings across his past two starts. Sabathia has struggled mightily at Yankee Stadium this season with a 5.08 ERA at home.
