Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox 5/8



Good morning Yankees family and welcome back to baseball tonight as the New York Yankees face off with the Boston Red Sox. I have to think that the worst thing a red-hot team like the New York Yankees could do while they are streaking is to take a day off, but with a team this deep, young and talented the “norm” may very well be thrown out the window at this point. Looking to keep the good times rolling for the Yankees is Luis Severino who will toe the rubber against Drew Pomeranz for the Red Sox. Let’s get to it here in the Bronx.

Severino heads into this start tonight with the Red Sox fresh off the first complete game shutout of his career limiting the Houston Astros to just five hits on Wednesday. Severino has made four starts since seeing the Red Sox earlier this season and is sporting a 1.24 ERA with five walks and 32 strikeouts in 29 innings of work during that span.


Pomeranz has made three starts for Boston since coming off the disabled list and will make his fourth start since the DL trip tonight in the Bronx. Pomeranz has a career 3-2 record inside Yankee Stadium with a 3.12 ERA, a trend that hopefully worsens tonight in the Bronx.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium in the Bronx and can be seen on the YES Network locally, MLB Network nationally and on NESN if you are living behind enemy lines. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Enjoy the game, renew the rivalry, and go Yankees!!
