Boston Red Sox

Boston Red Sox were terrible with the Yankees as they lost both games. In fact, the Red Sox have been terrible against other opponents this year. Boston will need to strike back soon.

In this series alone, the Red Sox gave up 10 runs in total and scored just three. Kevin Pillar was the only player to contribute from the plate for Boston. Austin Brice will be delivered to the mound as their starting pitcher in this game.  Brice has only five strikeouts against the Yankees.
