Boston Has Struggled To Protect Leads In This Series
An Alex Verdugo home run gave the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning on Saturday, but that would be the only offense the team would produce in a 4-2 loss to the Yankees. Boston also got off to a hot start with a 3-0 lead in Friday’s game against New York, and that lead too was eventually lost in a 6-5 loss in extra innings.
Trevor Story is off to a 1-for-8 start through his first two games with the Red Sox. Story was the team’s top offseason acquisition as the recipient of a six-year, $140 million deal.
New York’s Lineup Looks Stacked
The Yankees had an uncharacteristically poor year on offense last season, finishing 19th in the majors in runs scored with 4.39 runs per game. Offense doesn’t look like it will be a problem in New York this season.
Giancarlo Stanton and Anthony Rizzo each hit two-run home runs in New York’s 4-2 win over Boston on Saturday. Newcomer Josh Donaldson hit a walk-off RBI on Friday. Despite a somewhat quiet offseason outside of the Donaldson acquisition, this offense looks poised for a bounce-back year in 2022 and to be a solid Red Sox vs Yankees prediction on Sunday.
