I like this matchup and the injury depleted yankees need an emotional boost going into June. Red Sox lead the season series 3-1, and I would like to see NYY spanking Schilling.
(I am putting my unbeaten GT streak on the line for this. )
NYY: RHP Chien-Ming Wang (4-1, 3.79 ERA)
Wang is 0-1 with a 4.41 ERA in three career games against the Red Sox. The Yankees are 5-4 in Wang's nine games started this season, averaging 5.1 runs per outing.
BOS: RHP Curt Schilling (6-2, 4.17 ERA)
During Schilling's recent four-game win streak, the right-hander has given up only five earned runs and four walks while striking out 23 in 28 innings pitched.
Player to watch
Alex Rodriguez (4-for-22, .182) and Jason Giambi (5-for-18, .278) may have just nine hits combined against Schilling, but five of those hits have been home runs.
