Today’s matchup is between the Boston Red Sox (34-23) and the New York Yankees (31-27). The Red Sox have won 2 of their last 5 games & the Yankees have won 2 of their last 5 games.

The Red Sox are starting Eduardo Rodriguez (LHP), on the mound who is 5-4 on the season pitching a 5.64 ERA, 3.70 FIP, .357 wOBA, K% of 25.6%, BB% of 5.7%, 87.7 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.44 WHIP in 52.2 innings pitched.

The Yankees are starting Jameson Taillon (RHP), who is 1-4 on the season with a 5.10 ERA, 4.62 FIP, .332 wOBA, K% of 27.1%, BB% of 7.4%, 90.1 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.26 WHIP in 47.2 innings pitched.

The Red Sox are 7th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Yankees are 4th.

On the hitting side, the Red Sox have a .326 wOBA and a .317 OBP. The Yankees have a .305 wOBA and a .315 OBP. The Red Sox have 70 HRs this season while the Yankees have 67 HRs.

Not a game I'll be betting but I give the Yankees the slight nod to win. At -125 though I don't see any value in the line as both starting pitchers are unreliable, though Jameson Taillon is the slightly better pitcher, and relieving/hitting of the teams are nearly identical.
