Big Matchup on Tap at Fenway Park

The Boston Red Sox are doing a great job of securing their lead in the American League East and dashing the playoff hopes of the arch rival New York Yankees in the process. Next up is a contest at historic Fenway Park on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Yankees are 1-5 in their last 6 road games.
  • The Red Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 home games.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in Sabathia's last 5 starts.

CC Sabathia and Drew Pomeranz will take the hill. Sabathia (8-12, 4.10 ERA) last saw Boston on July 16 and was reached for five runs on nine hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings to suffer the loss.

Pomeranz (10-12, 3.25) is winless in his last four starts and was lit up for five runs on four hits and a pair of walks over two innings in a loss to Baltimore on Tuesday. The 27-year-old held New York to one run over 5 1/3 innings but did not factor in the decision in his first start against the Yanks on August 10.
