Yankees vs Red Sox in September Baseball

The last meeting the Boston Red Sox (89-58) and New York Yankees (83-63) had was in August when the Yankees swept three games from Boston in NY. Now its September and the Yankees are in Boston. Boston is 5.5 games ahead of New York for the division lead. But New York sits 3.5 games up over Detroit in the wild card standings. So this weekend isn’t much about a playoff spot, as it is about pride and confidence.

Game 2 Starters Record HR BB K ERA WHIP
Josh Beckett 18-6 14 36 173 3.27 1.14
Chien-Ming Wang 18-6 8 52 91 3.69 1.27

Game 3 Starters Record HR BB K ERA WHIP
Curt Schilling 8-7 18 23 93 3.93 1.28
Roger Clemens 6-6 9 28 64 4.45 1.34

My Prediction:

  • Red Sox take two of three. Pettitte over Dice-K, Beckett over Wang and Schilling over Clemens.

Notes:

  • The Red Sox are 7-9 in this year against the Yankees.
  • Unless the Red Sox sweep the Yankees, neither team is in risk of missing the playoffs. There are about 15 games left for the Red Sox whose magic number is 11 for the AL East. The Yankees have 16 games left and their magic number is 13 for the Wild Card.
