Free MLB Postseason Prediction Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees
The Yankees backs are against the wall as they trail the Boston Red Sox 2-1 in the series. The Yankees will have to find a way to beat the red-hot Red Sox’s team.
The Red Sox put Rick Porcello on the mound for game four with a chance to advance to the ALCS. Porcello was (17-7, 4.33 ERA) in the regular season. Boston exploded in game 3 and rolled over the Yankees 16-1, on Monday night in Boston. Can the Red Sox continue their big-time hitting in a trip to Yankee Stadium? Brock Holt was on fire, as he was able to hit the first cycle in the history of the MLB in the postseason. He wasn’t going to be denied. He also drove in five runs. Porcello’s last appearance came in game 1 where he only played for 0.2 innings and allowed one hit. First baseman Mitch Moreland is listed as day-to-day for Boston.
The Yankees were completely dominated in game 3 on Monday night, they will have to find a way to not replicate their bad performance. They will go with C.C. Sabathia on the mound for game 4. Sabathia is (9-7, 3.65 ERA) this season. His last appearance came on September 27, in a win against the Rays, where he went five innings, allowing one hit, and threw five strikeouts. Offensively their only run in game 3 was registered by Luke Voit. The Yankees will look to big hitters Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Andrew Mccutcheon to get some runs tonight if they want to survive.

It’s elimination time for the Yankees isn’t it, after Monday night’s 16-1 loss the Yankees are in a hole. However they are at home for game 4, and that spells a win for Yankees as they 7-1 in their last 8 home playoff games. But the Red Sox are on fire, and they have Rick Porcello on the mound tonight. It will definitely be a slugfest, and I like the Line at 1.5 runs. Yankees will put up a fight, but I’m not sure how much they have left after being beaten so bad in game 3.
