Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox 6/7

The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox are back at it again tonight with the second of their three-game set this week in the Bronx. Rivalry renewed. In the middle game of the series the Yankees will send their big lefty CC Sabathia to the mound to square off with Rick Porcello, the 2016 American League Cy Young Award Winner, taking the mound for the Red Sox.

Sabathia has found his cutter once again and is seemingly enjoying a good string of starts lately because of it. Sabathia has won each of his last four starts for New York while posting a 1.48 ERA in that span. This will be the first time the southpaw will face the Boston Red Sox in 2017.

Porcello was sharp in his last start against the Baltimore Orioles despite two first inning solo home runs. Porcello finished the night with six innings pitched and three runs allowed in a loss but that was due in large part to his offense not giving him enough run support, he pitched well enough to win. Winning is something Porcello hasn’t done against the Yankees in five career starts at Yankee Stadium though as the right has posted a 1-3 record with a 4.78 career ERA in the Bronx.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB Network and MLB TV. You can also watch the game if you are behind enemy lines on NESN. Finally, you can follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Rivalry renewed a second time. Enjoy the game. Go Yankees!!
