Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox 9/17

The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox are back at it again today in the third of their four-game set this weekend inside Fenway Park. What a start to the series we were treated to on Thursday night although Yankees fans everywhere were left shaking their heads at the end of the night. Friday night we watched two young guns go at it head-to-head and today we see a pesky old friend named David Price. Happy, happy. Joy, joy. Or as I like to say; sarcasm, sarcasm. Opposing the Red Sox ace on the mound today for the Yankees will be Bryan Mitchell.

Mitchell will be making his third start of the season this afternoon inside Fenway Park after a great debut followed by some struggles last time out against the Dodgers. Mitchell allowed six runs, although only two of them were earned runs, on eight hits in just 2.1 innings pitched.

Price on the other hand is red hot posting a 7-0 record in his last seven starts with a 2.16 ERA. Price is pushing the Red Sox to the postseason and to an AL East Division title but he will have to improve on his 1-2 record and 7.79 ERA against New York this season to do so.

The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET inside Fenway Park, let’s make sure all the doors are closed this time fellas, and can be seen on FOX. It might also be able to be seen on MLB TV but I doubt it. Blackout rules still confused me, I’ll admit it.  Another thing I’ll admit is despite the season and career statistics the Yankees have against David Price I never feel truly comfortable or confident. We need a win Yankees family, let’s not mince words, so let’s get a win against Price and the Red Sox this afternoon. Go Yankees!
