Yankees Deemed Dogs in First Half of Doubleheader

The day before a doubleheader probably isn’t the best time to play an epic 16-inning game but that’s exactly what the Yanks and Red Sox did last night. By the end of Sunday, the two clubs will have played 34 or more innings of baseball against each other in just over 24 hours. Boston is favored in both halves of the doubleheader today but as we’ve seen, nothing’s going to come easily in this series.

  • The Yankees are 3-1 SU in their last 4 games as the underdog at Fenway Park.
  • Rick Porcello has allowed 9 runs in 13 innings of work against the Yankees this year.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 9 of CC Sabathia’s last 10 starts against the Red Sox.

CC Sabathia (7-3, 3.81 ERA) has seen his share of the Red Sox over the course of his long-tenured career and his 14-13 all-time record against them is a good indicator of how close this series has been the past two decades. With the extra-innings win last night, however, the Yanks improved their record to 8-2 straight up in their last 10 against the BoSox and they’ve got a chance to steal another one tonight.

Last year’s surprise Cy Young winner will handle the pitching duties for Boston and it’s doubtful the visiting team is feeling much anxiety about the matchup. Rick Porcello (4-11, 4.75 ERA) has been a shell of the man he was in 2016 and it looks like last season’s breakout was nothing more than a flash in the pan.
