The Yankees will look to rebound tonight after being obliterated 19-3 in the first game of the series. New York’s pitching has really struggled of late as they own a 15.59 ERA as a starting staff over the last six games. James Paxton will be on the mound tonight to try and turn things around. The lefty is 3-0 with a 1.89 ERA in five career starts vs. the Sox, but it will be his first career appearance at Fenway Park.
Cameron Maybin will play in his first game since June 21ST as he has been reinstated from the IL. He’s starting in left, Mike Tauchman is in center, and Aaron Judge will patrol right field.
Boston will have the newly-acquired Andrew Cashner on the hill to make his third start for the Red Sox. He’s faced the Yankees three times in 2019, and hasn’t had much luck. The Bombers have roughed him up for an ERA of 6.19 in 16 innings. Here’s who will be behind him:
The game can be seen on WPIX or MLB Network, streamed on fuboTV or MLB.tv, and heard on WFAN or WADO. First pitch is at 7:10 EST.
