Red Sox hope Price is right, vie for sweep of Yankees

The Boston Red Sox will aim to wrap up a four-game sweep of the New York Yankees on Sunday night, and if they do, some baseball experts - such as the analysts on ESPN - say that the American League East pennant race will be effectively over.
"I'm not paying attention to the amount of pitches that I have", Chapman said through an interpreter, downplaying his high pitch count as a reason for his struggles. "We kind of stole this one".
One night after Rick Porcello threw an 86-pitch, one-hit complete game, Eovaldi started with three no-hit innings and left after eight with a 4-0 lead.
Boston won the opener 15-7, a game that had 27 hits and seven homers.
Betts, who had to move to the outfield coming up through the system because the Red Sox had a second baseman in Dustin Pedroia, was happy to return. The Yankees hold a slim four-game lead over the rest of the American League for the top Wild Card spot, but they must end their recent skid if they want to retain this lead. Martinez ripped a hard line drive up the middle, just out of the reach of a leaping Gleyber Torres.
The Marlins had tied the game in the seventh on a two-run homer by Derek Dietrich and a solo shot by Justin Bour two outs later. Judge, who suffered a chip fracture of his right wrist bone, was expected to be back swinging a bat this weekend and in a "game situation" three weeks from the initial injury.
Porcello got defensive backing in the ninth when Jackie Bradley Jr. made a leaping grab at the center-field wall of a Neil Walker drive for the second out.
After basically going silent in the previous two-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Sox hitters woke up in a major way against the Pinstripes with the 15 runs.
Nationals slugger Bryce Harper was forced to leave soon after being hit by a pitch, then Cincinnati Reds star Joey Votto went wild when he got drilled Saturday night as Washington won to split a doubleheader.
Manager Aaron Boone said Happ is no longer contagious. With 52 games remaining that will give NY plenty of opportunities to beat up on some weaker opponents, even though it has a tendency to play down to lesser teams. NY will be a familiar opponent, and not just because Eovaldi was with the Rays.
Of the 30 Major League Baseball franchises, the Yankees have the second-easiest remaining schedule as their opponents average a measly.465 winning percentage. "Now it's just getting the strength back that's the biggest thing". But no, Cashman decided it was a great time to poke the best team in baseball with his bravado, as the Yankees rolled into town with superstars like Shane Robinson and Luke Voit anchoring a squad completely confused about how to actually play baseball.
John Ryder tries to figure out if it is World Series or bust for this Red Sox team after theior performance of late and the claims by the fans that this is one of the best Red Sox teams they've ever seen.
