It’s a cool, breezy evening here in the Bronx, and we’re just about ready to get underway with tonight’s game. The Yankees are taking on the Red Sox, and we should see a great match-up between these two teams.
Who is starting?
The New York Yankees are set to take on the Boston Red Sox tonight in the Bronx, and we want to know who is starting on the mound for the Bombers.
According to the Yankees’ official Twitter account, it will be Masahiro Tanaka getting the start. The right-hander is 11-5 on the season with a 3.22 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 23 starts. He has also struck out 155 batters in 143 innings pitched.
Tanaka will be looking to continue his strong season against a Red Sox team that he has had success against in his career. In seven starts against Boston, Tanaka is 4-2 with a 2.55 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. He has also struck out 50 batters in 47 innings pitched against them.
The Red Sox will counter with left-hander Chris Sale, who is 9-4 with a 2.11 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 21 starts this season. He has also struck out 193 batters in 133 innings pitched.
Sale has had some success against the Yankees in his career, but he will be looking to turn things around tonight after struggling against them earlier this season. In four starts against New York this year, Sale is 1-2 with a 5.06 ERA and 1.38 WHIP. He has also struck out 28 batters in 22 innings pitched against them this year.
Who is in the bullpen?
The bullpen is the area in baseball where relief pitchers warm up before entering the game. It is typically located in foul territory down the right or left field line. A team’s roster of relief pitchers is often referred to as its bullpen.
The term “bullpen” can also refer to the group of relief pitchers on a team. For example, a manager might say that he needs to “go to his bullpen” in order to make a pitching change.
Some bullpens have an enclosed area for pitchers to warm up in; others simply have an open area near the dugout.
Who is not available?
The following Yankee pitchers are not available tonight:
-Aroldis Chapman (closer)
-Zack Britton (setup)
-Tommy Kahnle (middle relief)
-Chad Green (middle relief)
-Luis Cessa (long relief)

How are they doing?
The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City; the other club is the National League (NL)’s New York Mets. One of baseball’s first expansion teams, the Yankees began play in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the modern Baltimore Orioles). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City; they renamed the team the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed as the “Yankees” in 1913.

Who pitched well?
The Yankees had a great game last night, and their pitchers were a big part of the reason why. Let’s take a look at some of the top performers from last night’s game.
Starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was lights out, pitching seven innings of shutout baseball while allowing just four hits and one walk. He struck out eight batters, and he looked like the ace that the Yankees signed him to be.
Relief pitcher Dellin Betances continued his dominant season, pitching one inning of scoreless relief while striking out two batters. He has been one of the best relievers in baseball this season, and he showed why last night.
Finally, closer Aroldis Chapman came in for the ninth inning and recorded a save while striking out two batters. Chapman has been lights out since joining the Yankees, and he has been a huge part of their success this season.
Who pitched poorly?
There were a few bad performers on the mound last night. Starter Sonny Gray only pitched three innings, giving up three earned runs on four hits. He also walked two batters and struck out four. The bullpen wasn’t much better, with Chasen Shreve and Domingo German each giving up a run in their one inning of work. Shreve also allowed two hits and struck out one batter.
Who got the save?
The save (abbreviated SV or S) is the final statistic in a baseball game. A pitcher earns a save by entering the game in a save situation with their team ahead and finishing the game without giving up the lead. These situations typically arise in the late innings of close games, when a team’s best relief pitchers are entrusted to protect a narrow lead. A pitcher who finishes a game for his team but who was not pitching when his team took the lead may be credited with a hold.
