Analysis

These are 2 teams headed in opposite directions. The Yankees are coming off being swept in a 3-game series at home by the Reds and are now a terrible 4-13 in their last 17 games. During that 17-game funk, the Bronx Bombers allowed an average of 6.9 runs scored per outing and were outscored by an average of 1.8 runs per game. Conversely, Boston has won their last 4 and is now 17-8 over their last 25 games. That includes the Red Sox going 10-3 in their last 13 away games.

Nestor Cortes is slated to be on the mound tonight for New York. Cortes is 1-4 during his last 5 team starts. AS a matter of fact, the Yankees are 7-11 this season in games which Cortes has been their starting pitcher, and 47-24 in all games not started by Cortes.

Tanner Houck is coming off his worst start of the season in a home loss to San Diego. However, Houck has been brilliant in 7 away starts this season with a 1.85 ERA/0.89 WHIP and allowed just 1 homer over 43 ⅔ innings pitched. Houck also has a career 2.06 ERA versus the Yankees Give me the Red Sox as a money line underdog.
