Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox 6/8

For the third and final time this week the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox will make the trip to the Bronx to square off head-to-head inside Yankee Stadium. In the finale of the three-game set each team will send one of their best pitchers to the mound as the Yankees send Michael Pineda to square off against David Price. Even though it was years ago what do you think the over/under is on how long before the NESN broadcast fills time with “Pine Tar Gate” mentioning Michael Pineda having pine tar on his palm and neck? Two innings? Leave your thoughts below in the comments section.

Pineda has been easily one of the Yankees best starters this season although you couldn’t tell it in his last start against the Toronto Blue Jays. In the start Pineda allowed five runs on ten hits in five-plus innings of work snapping a nine start streak Pineda had allowing three earned runs or fewer. Time for a new streak.

Price will be making just his third start of the season tonight after starting the season on the disabled list with an elbow injury. Price was not great against the Yankees last season posting a 1-3 record with a 7.89 ERA in five starts. Meanwhile Price has been decent inside Yankee Stadium throughout his career posting an 8-5 record with a 3.98 ERA. Which Price will we see tonight? Who knows?

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network, ESPN, NESN if you’re behind enemy lines and MLB TV wherever you and your device are. You can also tune in on the radio and in your cars by giving John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman’s WFAN broadcast a listen.

Enjoy the game, renew the rivalry and as always… Go Yankees!
