Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees 6/10/2023 Picks, Tips and Previews

The Boston Red Sox will go against the New York Yankees in MLB action in Yankee Stadium, NY, on Saturday, June 10, 2023, at 7:35 PM ET. Boston was the only AL East team without an undefeated record entering this series after losing five of its previous six games. They are thus 5.0 games away from the last AL Wild Card spot. Their pitching staff ranks 26th in ERA this season, which is the root of their problems. Although nothing exceptional, the bullpen changed from a year ago. This club will succeed or fail based on its starting rotation, and Tanner Houck will start on Saturday. On the 2023 Red Sox, he pitched the second-most innings, yet his ERA is 5.46. Boston lost his previous five outings, and since the month of May began, he has given up 22 runs in 31.2 innings. If there is a silver lining, it is that in 27.2 career innings against the Yankees, he has a 2.28 ERA. 

Boston was always associated with batting, and this year did not change that. Despite entering this series in a slump, the team ranks sixth in runs scored per game this season. They only scored a total of 15 runs over the aforementioned 1–5 span that came before this series. Although this club ranks sixth in strikeout rate, fifth in OBP, and seventh in slugging percentage, they are still a strong unit. They have the ability to snap out of this slump at any time. 

Over the season, the Red Sox sent 191 relievers to the mound. This season, the bullpen pitchers gave up 50 runners, and 34.0% of them scored a run for their club. In spite of having had 23 opportunities to get a save, they only succeeded in 16 of them this season. The Red Sox relief pitchers entered 54 save situations and recorded a save percentage of 69.6%. The relief pitchers are 16th in the league with 31 holds this season. 

  • The total went under in five of Boston’s last seven matches.
  • The Boston Red Sox are 2-5 SU in their last seven matches.
  • The Boston Red Sox are 1-6 SU in their last seven matches against the NY Yankees. 

Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees 6/10/2023 Picks, Tips and Previews

This Yankees squad, which did not even come close to playing at full strength this season, is still in the cycle. A major blow to New York’s lineup was caused by the recent acquisitions of Aaron Judge, Harrison Bader, and Nestor Cortes to the IL. The Yankees have been hitting well lately, reaching seventh in runs scored per game this year. Of course, Aaron Judge’s return from injury helped with that upswing. This time, a lineup that ranks 10th in slugging percentage will need reinforcement from Giancarlo Stanton and Josh Donaldson. This team has the talent to keep hitting home runs and winning games as they compete for another playoff spot. 

This year, New York’s Bronx bullpen was its savior. There isn’t a group of relievers with a lower ERA, much less one with a combined ERA under 3.00. That team also struggled with numerous injuries. Although Domingo German emerged as a surprising rock in the rotation, starting pitching was not as reliable. Through 11 starts, he has a 3.69 ERA, and the Yankees won his previous three starts. After 53.1 innings against Boston, German has a 3.88 ERA, including a close-to-no-hitter in 2021. He and the bullpen need to take the initiative, with the offensive production currently being a big question mark. 

Out of 100 inherited base runners, New York relievers have a 39.0% success rate. Their relief pitchers entered the game 71 times with base runners and 68 times in high-leverage situations. The Yankees have 50 save opportunities, 50 holds, and seven failed saves. They used 190 relievers this season and are ranked 8th in the league with a save percentage of 70.8%.

  • The total went under in four of the New York Yankees’ last five matches.
  • The total went under in six of the New York Yankees’ last eight matches at home.
  • The New York Yankees are 6-1 SU in their last seven matches at home against Boston.

Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees. The MLB pick for this game is the New York Yankees. The Red Sox had a 2-13 record in their previous 15 visits to Yankee Stadium, dating back to July 17, 2021, when this series started. This game’s pitching matchup should cause that losing streak to continue into Sunday. German has been pitching great recently, and New York’s bullpen has been unreal this year. Tanner Houck of Boston and a large portion of the Red Sox relievers both had a difficult season. The Yankees’ offense may be without the AL MVP again, but they will still manage to win this game. The New York Yankees will win by a predicted score of 7-3.
