NY Yankees vs Boston Red Sox Prediction

I’ll stay with the Red Sox. Winckowski is doing well over his last couple of outings, posting 11.0 combined innings with two earned runs on 10 hits and two walks. Winckowski is 1-0 in that pair. As for Cole, he had six earned in 4.0 innings versus the Mets on June 25 but did better in his last start (5.0 innings; one earned in a win).

On Friday the Sox gave New York another embarrassing loss, surging to a nice win with a late push. All the Boston RBI came on homers (from Romy Gonzalez, Masataka Yoshida and Ceddanne Rafaela). It’d be nice to see a little more offensive variety Saturday, but the Sox should be in good shape no matter what.
