Heading into game one of this doubleheader the Yankees have won six of their past seven meetings with the Boston Red Sox and the Yankees are looking to make that seven of eight wins as they held a 4-0 lead in game one at press time. The New York Yankees will send right hander Phil Hughes on the hill in game two to face the Boston hitting lineup. Hughes has hit good form lately as the New York hurler in eight of his past ten outings have allowed two runs or less to his opponents. Hughes has had much better control as he has limited his bases on balls which has greatly impacted his turnaround. It has been well documented for years how well the Yankees hit left handers. Heading into game one the club pushes across 5 ½ runs per game and has a team batting average of .277 against southpaws. In game one the Yankees were facing a lefty starter for Boston and pounded the Red Sox for four runs in the first inning. Over their past seven contests the Yankees have a team batting average of .288 and the team resides in first place in the AL east division. Countering for the Red Sox in game two is Felix Doubront a lefty starter. Doubront has struggled in recent outings as the Red Sox hurler has an ERA over 5 ½ runs and a WHIP approaching two base runners per inning over his past three starts. He lasted just 4 1/3rd innings in his last start on Sunday giving up five walks as the Red Sox starter had trouble with control. The Red Sox hitters have struggled with a team batting average of just .230 over their past seven games. During that span the Red Sox have scored two or less runs in six of those seven games. The edge is squarely on the Yankees in game two and you get them at an underdog but before betting read sportsbook reviews.
