After taking three of four games against the Cleveland Indians, The New York Yankees (44-44, 4th AL East) head home to host division rival Boston Red Sox (49-38 2nd AL East) this weekend kicking off tomorrow evening at 6:05 in Yankee Stadium.
Taking the mound for the Yankees will be Michael Pineda (3-8, 5.38 ERA) while Eduardo Rodriguez (1-3, 8.59 ERA) will take the mound for the Red Sox.
“It’s really important,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. ” … I think it’s really important because of who we are playing. You are playing two teams in the division who are ahead of you [and] playing San Francisco, who is playing extremely well.”
