Game Thread: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox 5/6

The New York Yankees have returned home to the Bronx with some fresh blood and new faces in James Pazos and Ben Gamel to add to the rivalry between themselves and the Boston Red Sox. These two teams went toe-to-toe last night in the Bronx and they are right back at it again some 14 hours later with a great pitching matchup for the fans. The Yankees will send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound this afternoon in the Bronx to face off against David Price of the Boston Red Sox in a rematch of last Sunday’s ESPN televised game. This game will be played at 1:05 pm ET inside of Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

To see tomorrow night’s encore in the Bronx between these two clubs you can either watch it at home on ESPN or you can see it live by clicking the Yankees Tickets link at the top of the blog. That link will take you to our friends over at Ticket Monster who give Greedy Pinstripes readers cheap premium tickets without attaching any sort of fees or shipping costs to the price of the tickets while allowing you to sit in those seats you are “unworthy” to sit in according to some in the Yankees organization. If you choose the former rather than the spiteful latter then you can at least following along on twitter with us by giving @GreedyStripes a follow as we discuss each and  every Yankees game this season.

Nathan Eovaldi is ready to take the mound, the Yankees offense looks ready and David Ortiz is in the house. It’s going to be another great Yankees and Red Sox game, I just have that feeling. It’s always a good Yankees and Red Sox game though when New York wins so Go Yankees!!


  1. Eovo has done it! He has learned to change his arm slot and get movement on his fastball. Now he has A fastball (no movement), fastball (cuts to the right), cutter (cuts to the left), sinker and a curve ball (somewhat). That ain't bad people, for a guy that had a Fastball (no movement) and a half assed curve and sinker just last year, which improved over the year.

    1. He's definitely taking a step forward that's for sure. A little slow to come out of the gates but has pitched well since.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
