Red Sox and Yankees Clash on Tuesday

Yankees-Red Sox MLB

Red Sox Can Clinch AL East Against Yankees

The Yankees host the Red Sox as the MLB regular season nears conclusion. Every game goes toward clarifying the playoff picture. It’s a foregone conclusion that Boston will take the AL East title. The Red Sox will have the opportunity to rub it in the Yankees face.

They can officially celebrate clinching by winning two of three from the Yankees this week. Beginning on Tuesday, New York will welcome the Red Sox to Yankees Stadium for the first of a three-game set.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Red Sox RH Nathan Eovaldi (5-7, 4.22 ERA) vs. Yankees LH J.A. Happ (16-6, 3.75)

Odds: Yankees are -165-moneyline favorites. Total is 9 Under -115.

Should be a Good Pitching Matchup

JA Happ will take the mound for New York to open the series. The veteran lefty has arguably been the Yankees’ best starter since his acquisition from the Toronto Blue Jays in July.

He’s a perfect 6-0 with a 2.70 ERA over his brief stint with the Bronx Bombers. Happ will look to further improve upon his already impressive 16-6 season record with an important game against the AL East rivals.

Boston will tap starter Nathan Eovaldi to counter against Happ. Eovaldi hasn’t won a game since August 4 when he faced these same Yankees at home. Since then, he’s 0-3 over seven starts. He has failed to get out of the fifth innings in five of those appearances.

While Eovaldi is a depth starter for Boston, they’ll be expecting him to improve upon his recent performances. Especially in a playoff-like atmosphere in New York.

PREDICTION: Yankees 7, Red Sox 3
