9* Saturday MLB BOS/NYY
NY Yankees vs. Boston,
07/20/2013 16:05 EDT,
Score: 5 - 2
Total: -110/+9½ Under
Boston v New York under 9.5
The Boston Red Sox host the New York Yankees on Saturday afternoon in game two of a three-game set. Boston won game one in the series on Friday, 4-2.
It didn’t feel like things could get any worse in New York, but now Robinson Cano is dealing with a balky knee, Derek Jeter is back on the disabled list, Alex Rodriguez won’t return to the lineup until Monday, and Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, and Kevin Youkilis all remain out, seriously hindering the team’s ability to generate offense.
John Lackey gets the nod for the Red Sox in this one. Lackey has been lights out at home this season. Through six starts at Fenway this season, Lackey has a 1.32 ERA and 0.95 WHIP.
He’s also been solid in day games, posting a 2.08 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in five contests.
The under is 5-0-1 in Lackey’s six home starts this season.
Hiroki Kuroda counters for the Yankees. He has posted a respectable 3.25 ERA versus Boston in his last six outings against them.
The under is 17-4-1 in Kuroda’s last 22 road starts.
The under is 13-4-2 when Kuroda takes the mound this season, and 13-2-1 when Lackey takes the hill.
Take the UNDER.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
