Red Sox Vs. Yankees Lineup: David Price Starts Game 2 Of Doubleheader

2,556

The Boston Red Sox offense has scuffled to start the second half of the 2017 Major League Baseball season.

The Red Sox scored just six runs in the first three games of their four-game series against the New York Yankees, including being shut out in Game 1 of their doubleheader Sunday.

John Farrell tweaked the lineup for Game 2 of the twin bill as Dustin Pedroia, who sat for the first game, will hit third and play second base. Mitch Moreland also returns to the lineup for Game 2, hitting cleanup and playing first base.

David Price looks to snap the Red Sox’s two-game losing streak when he takes the hill Sunday night against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka. Price hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in a start since the last time he faced the Yankees when he was tagged for six earned runs in five innings.

Tanaka, on the other hand, has struggled all season, posting a 5.47 ERA during the first half of the campaign. He has had mixed results against Boston, however, as the righty tossed a complete-game shutout in his first start versus the Red Sox at Fenway Park but surrendered five runs in five innings in a loss at Yankee Stadium.
