Last weekend at Fenway Park, the Yankees and Sox split a four-game series. The Yankees are running away and hiding from Boston and their competition in the AL East. They hold a 14-game lead in the division as of July 13.

The standings are meaningless however for the Yankees and Red Sox in regards to their disdain for each other. The teams have met three times in the postseason this century, with Boston coming out on top twice. In some ways, Red Sox Nation is now more impressive than the Yankee dynasty. Boston has four titles this century, while the Bombers haven’t won it all since 2009. The 12-year drought between titles is the longest since the franchise went 18 years between World Series wins from 1978 to 1996.

Even though the Red Sox are staring up at the Yankees, Boston sits in one of the three wild card spots as the season nears the All-Star break. Last season, the Red Sox defeated the Yankees in the wild-card game to eliminate their bitter foes.

Yankees Trends Entering Red Sox Series

According to Baseball Reference, the Yankees have a 99.9% chance to win the AL East, and a 28.8% chance to win the 2022 World Series. But the games have to be played, and this month the team is 5-5, which might cut it in Pittsburgh or Cincinnati, but not under the bright lights of New York.

  • Each season a bullpen will go through a few stretches that show strain from excessive use. The Yankees might be in one of those phases. The pen has allowed 17 earned runs in its last 33 innings, which is a 4.64 ERA. Yankee relievers have blown two leads and allowed the lead to change five times in their last 10 games.
  • How long can Joey Gallo get playing time? He’s hitting .168, which would be the lowest batting average ever by a Yankee regular since the franchise moved to New York in 1903. Back then they were known as the Highlanders.
  • Anthony Rizzo has two home runs and eight RBI against Boston in five games in 2022.
  • Last weekend at Fenway, Giancarlo Stanton hit a home run off Nick Pivetta, who could start one of the games this weekend.
  • Don’t sleep on Matt Carpenter, who has four homers and nine RBI in eight games in July. The veteran’s confidence is soaring since signing a deal with the Yankees in late May. If he’s in the lineup, especially against a right-handed pitcher, he’s a nice choice to yank a baseball into the right-field seats. The former Cardinal is slugging a Ruth/Gehrig-like .859 since donning pinstripes.

Pitching Matchups: Red Sox at Yankees, July 15-17

Friday, July 15, 7:05 p.m., Nathan Eovaldi (4-2, 3.16) vs. Jordan Montgomery (3-2, 3.19)

How to watch: NESN, Amazon Prime Video, MLB Network

Notes: Boston star Xander Bogaerts is hitting .484 in 31 at-bats against Montgomery … Giancarlo Stanton leads NY hitters with three home runs off Eovaldi … Boston DH J.D. Martinez is struggling against the Yanks in 2022, and he’s only 2-for-23 against Montgomery in his career.

Saturday, July 16, 7:15 p.m., Nick Pivetta (8-6, 4.08) vs. Jameson Taillon (9-2, 4.01)

How to watch: FOX

Notes: In a combined 38 at-bats against Pivetta, Yankee sluggers Giancarlo Stanton and Josh Donaldson have six home runs … Anthony Rizzo has two homers off Pivetta in 16 at-bats … Pivetta may be showing signs of tiring. He’s allowed 13 ER and 16 hits in nine innings over his last two starts … Taillon has never lost to the Red Sox. He’s 2-0 with a 3.03 ERA in five starts.

Sunday, July 17, 1:35 p.m., Chris Sale (0-0, 0.00) vs. Gerrit Cole (8-2, 3.05)

How to watch: YES, NESN, MLB Network

Notes: Sale will be making his second start in 2022 since returning from a stress fracture in his right rib cage that sidelines him in spring training. Not since Roger Clemens was getting tossed from playoff games and throwing pieces of broken bats at opposing players have we seen a pitcher as maniacally intense as Sale. That means, in a rivalry game against the Yankees, we might get just about anything. Let’s just say it’s a good thing Fenway Park has a screen protecting fans seated near the infield. Sale could do anything … Cole has one of MLB’s best pitches in a high-octane, ultra-spinning slider. He’s shutting down hitters recently; 44 K’s in 33 1/3 innings over his last five starts.
