Behind a stellar yet controversial pitching performance from RHP Michael Pineda (6.0 IP, 4 H, R, ER, 2 BB, 7 K), the Bronx Bombers took the series opener, 4-1 over their hated rivals Thursday night. However, Beantown’s LHP Jon Lester returned the favor last night, pitching 6.2 innings of solid ball, allowing 6 hits and 2 earned runs, while walking 2 and punching out 6 batters.
With the series even at one win apiece, Boston skipper John Farrell sends battle-tested RHP John Lackey (2-0, 1.38 ERA) to the mound to face Joe Girardi’s veteran Yankee starter RHP Hiroki Kuroda (1-1, 2.92 ERA). Who will have the edge in a clash that features two of the most durable right-handers in the game today?
