Aces Set To Face Off At Fenway Park Thursday

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees send their staff aces to the mound when the teams continue their series Thursday. Chris Sale, who has been every bit as good as advertised since being traded to Boston, looks to continue his dominant pitching while Masahiro Tanaka looks to maintain his progress after a poor start to the season.

Shark Bites
  • Masahiro Tanaka has a 4.34 ERA and a 1.241 WHIP in 5 career starts at Fenway Park.
  • The Yankees are 6-0 against the runline in their last 6 games against the Red Sox.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Red Sox' last 6 games.

Sale, who has posted a phenomenal 0.91 ERA in his first four starts, is coming off his most dominant performance of the season. The lefty went eight scoreless innings with 13 Ks and just one walk while throwing 78.4 percent of his pitches for strikes. Sale has lit up the Yankees during his seven-year career, as he has a 1.17 ERA with a 0.820 WHIP in 10 career appearances against the Bronx Bombers.

Tanaka is coming off his best outing of the year in which he went 7.0 innings while allowing just one run – though that outing was against the terrible bats of the Chicago White Sox. The right-hander has been getting better in every one of his starts this season, which can be attributed to his splitter rounding into form.
