Yankees Relishing Their Trips to Fenway

One of the biggest rivalries in sports gets renewed this weekend when the Boston Red Sox host the New York Yankees for a three-game series. You’d think playing in front of the Fenway faithful would give the BoSox a boost, but they are just 2-8 in their past 10 games hosting the Bronx Bombers.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 6-3 in the past nine meetings between the Red Sox and Yankees.
  • Nobody in the Yankees projected lineup has hit a home run against Henry Owens.
  • The Red Sox are 2-7 in their past seven games at Fenway Park.

The Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound to start the series. Tanaka has been solid so far this season with a 2.92 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP while allowing two earned runs in each of his four starts. However, Tanaka has struggled against the Red Sox with a career 5.13 ERA in seven starts.

Henry Owens will get his second start of the season since getting the call to fill in for an ailing Joe Kelly. Owens, who allowed three earned runs in 3.1 innings in his first start, was decimated in his two starts against the Yanks last season. Owens posted a 13.50 ERA while giving up 10 earned runs across 6.2 innings against the Bronx Bombers last year.
