Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox 6/29

Good morning and welcome back to the Bronx where the rivalry is about to be renewed one more time between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. In the first of this three-game weekend set between the top two teams in the American League East Division the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound to face off with Eduardo Rodriguez for the Red Sox. Let’s get to it here in the Bronx.

Sabathia has been the loser of his last two starts, both at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays, despite pitching well enough to win in both of his starts. In the two starts combined Sabathia allowed just five runs total, four of them earned, with 14 strikeouts in 13 innings of work. Sabathia will look to limit the damage against Boston tonight and hopefully will hand the bullpen a lead.

Rodriguez has been solid as of late with just one blip on the radar, a tough start against the Seattle Mariners last time out where the Red Sox lefty allowed five runs in four innings of work. Rodriguez has pitched to a 2.97 ERA in his past seven starts and will look to build on a strong outing against the Yankees last time out on May 10th where he hurled five shutout innings with eight strikeouts.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network locally, NESN behind enemy lines, and on MLB Network if you are out of the regional market like I am. 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 on WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

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