Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineup: David Price Looks To Continue Dominance On Mound


BOSTON — The Red Sox already have won two of their four games against the New York Yankees this series, and David Price will be trying to make it three.

The left-hander is starting for the Red Sox on Saturday against the Yankees at Fenway Park, and he has a chance to extend his own winning streak to eight games.

Price has a 2.16 ERA and 51 strikeouts over 50 innings in his last seven outings. However, he hasn’t fared as well against New York this season, with a 1-2 record and a 7.79 ERA in three starts against the Bronx Bombers.

The rest of the Red Sox’s lineup remains pretty much unchanged from Friday, save for the addition of Andrew Benintendi. The left fielder will start after getting Friday night off and bat ninth.
