Red Sox vs Yankees Free Pick July 27 2012

The New York Yankees are leading the American League East with an overall record of 59-39 and will host the Boston Red Sox this weekend, who have a record of just 49-50. The two teams have a fierce rivalry that dates back more than 100 years. The teams’ records and statistics can be thrown out when these two meet.

Bobby Valentine, the Red Sox manager, will make his first visit to New York since 2002 when he was fired by the National League’s New York Mets. Also appearing for the first time in the Bronx wearing a Yankees uniform is Ichiro Suzuki. The veteran will start for the Yankees after being traded by Seattle earlier in the week for two pitching prospects.

The Yankees will send Phil Hughes to face Boston in the first game of the series. Hughes has a season record of 9-8 and a 4.09 ERA. The right-hander is 2-2 with a 2.25 ERA in his last five starts. In nine starts over his career against Boston, Hughes is just 1-5.

Boston will counter Hughes with Aaron Cook. Cook is 2-3 this season with a 3.50 ERA. He pitched last weekend against Toronto in Boston and let in five runs in 6 1/3 innings to suffer the loss. He has pitched only once against New York in his career. Last year, while with the Colorado Rockies, Cook lost to New York 8-3 after giving up six runs in only 5 2/3 innings.

The Yankees will get Nick Swisher back for tonight’s game. The outfielder has been out for five games nursing a strained hip flexor. Alex Rodriguez the Yankees third baseman will miss tonight’s contest.

The most recent line has the Yankees favored -162 to the Red Sox +152. The total is resting at 10.5. The Yankees will win this game to open the series and the total will winners of those who take the UNDER.
