The New York Yankees have been abysmal on the mound in this series.
CC Sabathia was on the hill for New York, as he gave up five runs on nine hits over 4.1 innings pitched.
Yankees' starting pitching has given up 52 runs on 52 hits over 26 innings over the past seven games. As a team, the Yankees have allowed 73 runs, 64 of them coming in the last six games, which is the most over a six-game stretch in the franchise history.
The Yankees are desperately in need of a win on Sunday night.
Yankees @ Red Sox Run Line
The Boston Red Sox are giving the Yankees 1.5 runs in this baseball game.
The Red Sox have outscored the Yankees by a 38-13 margin to win the first three games of this series.
Boston is rolling both offensively and defensively and I don't see it slowing down. With a win, the Red Sox will only be 7 games behind the Yankees in the American League East with two full months of baseball left to be played.
Roll with Boston here.
Yankees @ Red Sox Over/Under
The over/under total in this one is set at 10 runs.
My final score prediction: Boston Red Sox 6, New York Yankees 2.
Take the under in this matchup.
Where the game will be won or lost
Boston will have its ace on the mound on Sunday night.
Chris Sale will be on the hill for the Red Sox. He has a 5-9 record with a 4.00 ERA so far this season. In his last start on July 23, Sale allowed two runs on four hits and struck out 10 batters over six innings in a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
In his last two starts combined, Sale has allowed two total runs over 12 innings and has 22 strike outs.
Opposing Sale will be Yankees starter Domingo German.
German has a 12-2 record with a 4.03 ERA this season. He allowed a career-high eight runs over 3.2 innings in his last start, which came against the Minnesota Twins in a 14-12 victory for the Yankees.
Look for the left-hander Sale to stay hot and bring the Red Sox to a four-game sweep of the Yankees.
