Offense Hard To Come By In Red Sox-Yankees Rivalry

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees close out their last series before the all-star break at Yankee Stadium on Thursday. If history continues, expect a low-scoring affair, with the total going UNDER 5 in each of the past six games between the BoSox and Bronx Bombers.

Shark Bites
  • David Price had an 8.10 ERA in 3 starts at Yankee Stadium last season.
  • The Red Sox are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last 6 games on the road against the Yankees.
  • The Yankees are 0-4 SU in their last four games against left-handed starting pitchers.

David Price looked good in his second start back from the DL, as the lefty pitched 7.0 innings of one-run ball. However, Price struggled mightily against the Yankees last season with the Bronx Bombers lighting up the Sox pitcher for a 7.89 ERA in five starts.

Michael Pineda has been one of the most consistent arms in the Yankees rotation but he had a rough outing in his last start. Pineda gave up 10 hits and five runs against Toronto, which was the most he has allowed in either category all season long.
