The Red Sox and the Yankees will meet tonight for the conclusion of their series from Fenway Park. MLB odds are at Bovada sportsbook.
The Red Sox would love to play the role of spoiler again tonight as they dropped the game yesterday to the Yanks. Aaron Cook took the loss on the mound as his record fell to 3-10 on the season. Tonight the Red Sox will send Felix Doubront to the mound who has lost his last four decisions. On the year Doubront has allowed 146 hits in 134 innings of work.
The Yankees delivered a win yesterday when they needed it the most when they beat the Red Sox in a close one yesterday. Rafael Soriano closed the door in a 1-run game to earn his 37th save of the season. Tonight the Yankees will start Phil Hughes who has won two of his last 3 starts. He is pitching to a 4.13 ERA in 167 innings of work.
Boston is 4-10 in their last 14 home games, 1-5 in their last six games against the AL East, and 1-4 in Doubront’s last five starts. New York is 1-4 in their last five games as a favorite, 10-4 in their last 14 games against a team with a losing home record, and 1-5 in Hughes’ last six road starts. New York is 7-2 in their last nine games in Boston.
The Yankees seem to almost always rise to the occasion no what it sees to be and they rise to it here as well and get the win. Take them on the moneyline at best sports books.
