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

The New York Yankees have seemingly had their way with the Boston Red Sox this series and as much as it pains me to say it tonight will mark the final time these two teams play this week inside Yankee Stadium. We have seen the Major League debuts of Henry Owens for Boston on Tuesday and Luis Severino for the Yankees on Wednesday so who knows what is in store for the contest tonight. We do know this, the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound looking to secure another victory for New York while the Red Sox counter with Eduardo Rodriguez. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Sabathia left his last start against the Texas Rangers battling signs and symptoms of dehydration, a bout that forced him into a Texas hospital. Sabathia is back and presumably filled with fluids and looking to not allow five earned runs or more like he has in each of his last two starts. The last time Sabathia faced the Red Sox he allowed two runs over six innings in a no decision inside Fenway Park on May 1st.

  • Rodriguez has possibly been the team’s most consistent starter since Clay Buchholz went down with an injury while facing the Yankees before the All-Star break. The left-handed starter has had his rough outings along with his good outings but overall he has been solid allowing three runs or fewer in none out of the 12 starts he has made this season.

The Yankees finish their series with Boston tonight before staying home to welcome Troy Tulowitzki, David Price, Russell Martin and the Toronto Blue Jays for a super important series for both clubs. As long as the Yankees keep winning it doesn’t matter how many prospects the Blue Jays trade away and how many players the team acquires, they can’t make up the ground. Let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves though, the Yankees still have to blow out Boston once again tonight. Go Yankees!
