Game details: New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox, Tue 10/5
There’s an epic MLB wild-card game showdown on Tuesday night at Fenway Park. The Boston Red Sox will host the New York Yankees in an elimination game, and our play is on the under. Needless to say, the stakes are high, and runs should be at a premium.
New York will start Gerrit Cole. Cole had a rough last month of the season but is still one of the best pitchers in baseball. He also thrives in these big-game situations. In three playoff starts with the Yankees last year he had a 2.95 ERA, and in five playoff starts with Houston the year before he had an ERA of 1.72.
The Red Sox will start Nathan Eovaldi, who was mostly very good against the Yankees this year. In five of his six starts against New York, he gave up two or fewer runs. Boston certainly didn’t hit their best down the stretch, and the Yankees are 15th in the league in OPS over the last 15 days.
Don’t expect a shootout in this intense environment between bitter rivals.
