The Boston Red Sox got a huge boost by acquiring Drew Pomeranz, which will hopefully bolster a beleagured pitching staff that’s struggled to get the job done lately. Boston is set to invade Yankee Stadium on Saturday.
- The Yankees are 1-6 in their last 7 vs. American League East.
- The OVER is 6-2-1 in the Yankees last 9 games.
- The UNDER is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Eduardo Rodriguez and CC Sabathia are slated to get the ball for the Sox and Yanks, respectively. Rodriguez (1-3, 8.59 ERA) has struggled since coming off the disabled list in June, highlighted by a nine-run, 11-hit effort in 2.5 innings against the Rays on June 27.
Sabathia (5-6, 3.77) was ripped for 21 earned runs in 23 innings while going 0-2 in his last four outings. The big left-hander was 1-0 with a 2.12 ERA against the Sox last year.
