The New York Yankees will look to get in the win column as they face the Boston Red Sox at 7:10 p.m. ET. Check out the live stream as the game will feature two teams in the A.L. East looking to prove critics wrong.
The Red Sox took the first game between these two clubs in an 8-2 routing of the Yankees. Jon Lester looked like the true ace of the club as he controlled the Yankee bats who are missing their top sluggers who are currently on the disabled list.
Because the Yankees have Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter on the shelf, many analysts believe they will not have enough hitting in their lineup to battle until the get these guys back.
Currently, the Yankees are depending on Kevin Youkilis, Ichiro and their soon to be free agent, Robinson Cano, who should provide the power in that lineup.
On the mound today for both teams, it'll be HIroki Kuroda versus Clay Buchholz. The Red Sox are hoping Buccholz can repeat his Spring Training performance while the Yankees hope Kuroda can give them a more solid outing than C.C. Sabathia.
During Spring Training, Buccholz went 3-0 in six starts allowing just 2 ER on solo homers in 22.2 innings pitched for a 0.79 ERA and 22 strikeouts. He was remarkably unhittable and displayed controlled as he walked only six hitters.
Kuroda will look to back Sabathia in the pitching rotation. The 38-year-old righty went 16-11 last season with a 3.32 ERA and 219 innings pitched for career highs in wins and innings pitched. He accompanied these numbers for another career high in strikeouts (167) and complete games (3). Over the spring, he was lights out though goin 1-2 in four starts. He pitched 17.2 innings allowing just three earned runs and one home run while striking out 15 and walking three.
From the looks of it, it will be a pitchers duel, but you'll have to follow the game to see what happens.
