Schule's MLB GRIM REAPER B-L-O-W-O-U-T!
Boston vs. NY Yankees,
08/04/2015 19:05 EDT,
Score: 3 - 13
Money Line: -190 NY Yankees
This is a 7* play on the NYY.
The Yankees return home after winning 6-of-10 on a long road trip to host rivals Boston in a three game series in the Bronx. New York is leading the major leagues in scoring, batting .290 since the All Star break. The Red Sox on the other hand are 0-7 on the road since the break.
Henry Owens will toe the slab for the Sox, filling in for the injured Rick Porcello. Owens is making his major league debut, and the 23 year old southpaw posted a 3.16 ERA at Triple-A. This is a tough spot for the rookie, facing a Yankees lineup that leads the majors in scoring in night games batting .270 under the lights.
The Yankees hand the ball to Masahiro Tanaka, who has been rather hit or miss lately. Tanaka (7-4, 3.80 ERA) allowed four runs on nine hits over six innings in a loss at Texas his last time out. He had won four straight at home prior to that, and he's 5-2 with a 4.20 ERA in eight starts in Yankee Stadium this season.
The Yankees have won six of their last seven home games, and six of those seven games went over the total.
