MLB Preview: Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees

August 5, 2010

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox look to renew their storied rivalry on Friday, Aug. 6 with a four-game series in the Bronx. The Boston Red Sox are struggling as of late having fallen 7.5 games out of first place in the AL East. Injuries have played a large role in Boston’s demise this year with Victor Martinez, Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Lowell, and Dustin Pedroia all having spent time on the DL recently.

Boston is hoping to get a few of these players back this week, when they play the reeling Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians, who are in last place in the AL Central, so that they can make up a few games in the standings before facing the Yankees.

As is it always seems when the Yankees and Red Sox square off, the games next weekend will feature some quality pitching match ups. Scheduled starters for the Red Sox include MLB lines stars, Clay Bucholz, John Lackey, Josh Beckett, and Jon Lester, while the Yankees will counter with Javier Vazquez, C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, and Dustin Moseley.

The Yankees lead the season series 5-3, and will be looking to improve upon their AL best 34-16 home record. The Red Sox are a pedestrian 28-24 on the road this year, which would lead one to believe they will have their hands full next week against the Yanks.
