Divisional Dominator - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #969 Saturday 10* Top Play OVER the total in New York Yankees vs Boston Red Sox @ 7:15 ET - The Red Sox are starting Zack Godley as an opener in this one. I am aware of the fact that he struck out 7 in 4 scoreless innings in his first appearance this season and that the Yankees do tend to strike out a lot. However, I am not sold on Godley after just one outing. This is still a guy whom had a 6.39 ERA in 2016, 4.74 ERA in 2018, and 6.39 ERA in 2019 with the Diamondbacks. That is an NL team and now he is pitcher in the tougher AL and facing the Yankees in the Bronx. I look for him to get tattooed here. Keep in mind, behind him is a Red Sox pitching staff that has helped lead to Boston having one of the highest ERAs in the league so far this season. So the Yankees should score plenty here and I also expect the Red Sox bats to come back to life too after yesterday's 5-1 loss. Boston will take advantage of facing a pitcher who could be struggling a bit with the mental aspect of pitching in this one. Masahiro Tanaka gets the start here and he took a vicious line drive off the head in early July from one of his own teammates as the Yankees were preparing for the season. Also, Tanaka will be facing a Red Sox team that crushed him for 22 earned runs in 8 innings last season. You read that right...22 earned runs...8 innings! Look for a slugfest in the Bronx. 10* OVER the total in New York Yankees
