Home-field Advantage Has Been Critical Between BoSox, Yanks

*This game has been postponed due to rain. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader on July 16.

One of the fiercest rivalries in all sports writes another chapter when the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox take to Fenway Park on Tuesday. With the teams separated by just a half-game, this upcoming three-game set could be a tone-setter moving forward. Keep in mind the home team has won the past seven games between the rivals, which gives the Red Sox an edge.

Shark Bites
  • The Yankees are 5-0 against the runline in their last 5 games against the Red Sox.
  • The Red Sox are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games at home.
  • The Red Sox are 5-13 SU in their last 18 games against teams with winning records.

Rick Porcello takes the bump with the Fenway faithful hoping he can look like the pitcher he was last season. Porcello has been wildly inconsistent through his first four starts this season with a 5.32 ERA, which includes an embarrassing outing in which he surrendered eight earned runs and four home runs against Tampa Bay. Porcello pitched remarkably well against the Yankees last season (2.05 ERA in three starts) but this is undoubtedly a different Bronx Bombers squad.

The Yankees will counter with their own inconsistent starter in Luis Severino. The young righty has been rather underwhelming and has allowed a home run in each of his first three starts but does have a stellar 27/2 K/BB ratio. The BoSox banged around Severino last season as he went 0-2 with a 7.30 ERA in three appearances against Boston.
