Game 151: Don’t Let Them Clinch Tonight

The Yankees look to push back the Red Sox celebration as long as they can, as they look to take the first two of three from Boston on Wednesday. Luis Severino, who left his last outing after just 83 pitches with two outs in the sixth inning, looks to get over a significant bump in his season. He’s given up a 6.43 ERA in 11 starts since July 12. His counterpart is frequent Yankee opponent David Price. Price has a 1.56 ERA and five wins in nine starts since the All-Star break. But, he’s 0-5 with a 10.44 ERA in five Yankee Stadium starts since joining the Red Sox. One of these streaks will have to give, and the Yankees are hoping for the latter.

Pre-Game Notes:

  • Austin Romine was unavailable off the bench because of a sore neck. He reported feeling better today, and will be available off the bench.
  • Aroldis Chapman has been activated from the disabled list after missing 28 days with tendinitis in his left knee.

Red Sox Lineup:

  1. Mookie Betts – DH
  2. Andrew Benintendi – LF
  3. J.D. Martinez – RF
  4. Xander Bogaerts – SS
  5. Mitch Moreland – 1B
  6. Ian Kinsler – 2B
  7. Eduardo Núñez – 3B
  8. Sandy León – C
  9. Jackie Bradley Jr. – CF
