Red Sox vs Yankees Predictions

Red Sox vs Yankees Moneyline Analysis

When you think of baseball, you usually think of clear skies and perfect weather. Unfortunately for New York City, the wildfires in Canada have created a mess in the sky with smoke and an endless skyline or orange. Fortunately, the effect is not harmful to everyday life, which makes going through life events normal. Sports is a great distraction from the mess of life. What better way to distract fans than one of baseball’s biggest rivals; the Boston Red Sox (31-31) and the New York Yankees (36-26).

Both the Red Sox and the Yankees are in the middle of a brutal AL East Division as their batting teams have been keeping them in the mix. Outside of the tough skies conditions, the game will be hampered by the Yankees having star outfielder Aaron Judge on the IL due to an injured toe.

The Yankees come into this game ranked seventh in the AL in the runs accounted for (289), ninth in hits accounted for (480), second in home runs (96), and 10th in batting average (.234). Without Judge in the lineup, the Yankees need serious production from second baseman Gleyber Torres, first baseman Anthony Rizzo and shortstop Anthony Volpe.

Rizzo might be arguably the second-best batter for the Yankees this season by accounting for 32 runs, a team-high 63 hits, 11 home runs (second only behind Judge), 32 RBIs, 20 walks, 59 strikeouts, a batting average of .289, an on-base percentage of .363 and a slugging percentage of .477. Rizzo might not be the powerful hitter that Judge is, but he can be just as consistent at the plate and make the clutch hits when needed.

Torres is another batter that will be tasked to help make up for the overall productivity that Judge brings to the plate. In 61 games, Torres has accounted for 37 runs, 58 hits, nine home runs, 25 RBIs, six stolen bases, 26 walks, 33 strikeouts, a batting average of .253, an on-base percentage of .328, and a slugging percentage of .415. Finally, Volpe is a rookie that is giving a significant spotlight for the team but has seen up-and-down performances at the plate.

The Red Sox is one of the most consistent batting teams in the league as their goal is to get their players on base and develop a solid rhythm. Through 62 games this season, the Red Sox ranks third in the AL in runs accounted for (313), fourth in hits accounted for (551), first in double-hits bases accounted for (140), fifth in walks encountered (209), third in fewest strikeouts encountered in the AL (495), fourth in batting average (.260), fourth in on-base percentage (.332) and fifth in slugging percentage (.425).

Among some of the biggest attributes that make the Red Sox highly efficient at the plate are the power-hitting of third baseman Rafael Devers (13 home runs), a loaded lineup of batters, and the rise of a young set of stars.

27-year-old rightfielder Alex Verdugo has accounted for a team-high 42 runs, 66 hits, a team-high 19 double-base hits, five home runs, 24 RBIs, 25 walks, 25 strikeouts, a batting average of .286, an on-base percentage of .364, and a slugging percentage of .450. Leftfielder 

Masataka Yoshida is the current frontrunner for the AL Rookie of the Year due to his reliability at the plate since the start of the season. Through 54 games this season, Yoshida had accounted for 34 runs, a team-high 67 hits, 15 double-base hits, seven home runs, 33 RBIs, three stolen bases, 23 walks, only 24 strikeouts, a team-high batting average of .318, a team-high on-base percentage of .391 and a team-high slugging percentage of .498.

Red Sox vs Yankees Over/Under Analysis

The over/under for Friday’s game is set at eight runs, likely due to the projection of starting pitchers going into the first matchup. Throughout the series, the pitching and fielding from both teams are going to be tested. The Yankees and the Red Sox have too much depth and talent in their lineups to not score consistently.

The Yankees are ranked fifth in the AL in ERA (3.68) through the first 62 games this season. The Yankees are also ranked second in the AL in hits allowed (468), fifth in runs allowed (248), eighth in home runs allowed (68), and sixth in strikeouts accounted for (556). The average age of the bullpen in New York is 28.9 years old.

The Red Sox rank 12th in the AL in ERA (4.64) through the first 62 games of the season. They have also ranked 12th in the AL in hits accounted for (535), 12th in runs accounted for (306), 12th in home runs accounted for (77), seventh in walks encountered (187), and 10th in strikeouts accounted for 535). The average age of the bullpen for Boston is 30.5 years old.

In Saturday’s matchup, the Yankees are set to Domingo German (3.69 ERA in 61 innings) while the Red Sox will be starting be Tanner Houck (5.46 ERA in 57.2 innings). Both are competent and efficient to hold great batting teams to limited scoring situations.

On Sunday, the Yankees are going with Clarke Schmidt (4.96 ERA in 61.2 innings) while the Red Sox will have Bryan Bello (3.97 ERA in 45.1 innings) at the mound. This game will be one of the tightest matchups of the series based solely on the pitching.

The Yankees will have the edge at the mound in Saturday’s game with German while the Red Sox will have the edge in Sunday’s game with Bello.
