Advantage Boston

Sale was pretty good last night and Alex Cora made two smart bullpen moves to take the pressure off of Boston and place it squarely on the Yankees. They need to win tonight.

The key to tonight will be which Tanaka shows up. If it’s the good one, the Yankees should win. If it’s the bad one, we could be in for a five hour slugfest. The Yankees will be at a disadvantage if Hicks can’t play. He said his hamstring felt like a cramp, but he is headed to a MRI and the Yankees don’t have any additional outfielders on their 40-man roster.

Back tonight.
