Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox 8/12

The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox are back at it again today with the middle game of their three game set this weekend in the Bronx. This is going to be a very tough and challenging, but hopefully rewarding, week for New York as they face Boston this weekend, the Mets next week and the Red Sox again next weekend inside Fenway Park. This week will definitely be the week, either way, we as fans look back on at the end of the season and say that this was the turning point in 2017. We can’t worry about the end of the 2017 season just yet today as we have plenty of baseball still to go including today’s matchup that will include Luis Severino taking the mound for the Yankees and Drew Pomeranz taking the mound for the Boston Red Sox. Rivalry Renewed.

Severino has become the Yankees ace this season and looks to secure his fifth straight victory this afternoon in the Bronx. In his last four starts the Yankees right-hander has allowed just two earned runs over 25.2 innings pitched which is good for a 0.70 ERA. During that stretch Severino has struck out 32 and walked just seven batters.

Pomeranz dominated the Chicago White Sox last time out to the tune of one run allowed and eight strikeouts in 6.1 innings pitched. That start marked the eighth time in Pomeranz’s last ten starts that he went at least six innings. During that same span Pomeranz is pitching to a 2.24 ERA.

The game will be played at 4:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on Fox Sports One and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into the WFAN broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. Also as a reminder for tomorrow that the game is showcased on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball so get your naps in now, it could be a late one tomorrow. Oh, and it is Chris Sale tomorrow for the Red Sox so it could be a frustratingly late one tomorrow. Either way, go Yankees!
