Yanks Look For Series Sweep Vs BoSox

The New York Yankees will be trying to make up some ground in the competitive AL East when they aim to sweep the Boston Red Sox Sunday. The Yanks took the first two games of the weekend series while holding the BoSox to just two runs per game.

Shark Bites
  • Luis Severino has only faced the Red Sox once in his career allowing just two earned runs over 5.0 innings.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Yankees past five games.
  • The Red Sox entered the series as winners of six of the previous seven meetings with the Yankees.

Steven Wright, who will take the mound for the Red Sox, has looked like the best pitcher on the staff so far this season. The knuckleballer has a 1.67 ERA through his first five starts this season and has only allowed one home run. The Yankees were far from the Bronx Bombers when they faced Wright last season, as the pitcher allowed just three runs in two starts.

The Yanks will counter with potentially the most fade worthy pitcher in baseball this season. Luis Severino has a 6.31 ERA and has struggled with keeping the ball in the park, but the Yankees have only supplied 1.2 runs of support in his starts.
