Red Sox, Yankees clear benches over slide into second

Red Sox Journal: Despite 2-hit night on Monday, Benintendi sits on Tuesday

If the roles of Tuesday's game were reversed and it was the 5-5 Red Sox hosting the 8-1 Yankees, perhaps there'd be fewer smiles in the press room as Cora reflected on a gaffe that cost his team a win. Most of the flash that the Red Sox have is in their pitching [VIDEO] staff with ace Chris Sale, David Price and closer Craig Kimbrel.

While all the talk heading into the season was about Sanchez, Judge, and Stanton, it was a Red Sox trio that stole the show Tuesday. This information is subject to change, however, so be sure to check out our MLB Public Betting Page for updated figures on this game. They outscored the Yankees by 13 on Tuesday night, 14-1.

Luis Severino may have tipped his pitches vs.

Hopefully, with their past history against the left-hander, the Yankees offense can wake up on Wednesday night and finally start to get things going. Sale pitched six innings and allowed just one earned run on eight hits with no walks, striking out eight.

The Mets got two home runs from Asdrubal Cabrera and a serviceable start from Jacob deGrom who finished six innings while allowing four runs. The Sox were up 4-0 after two. After dropping the opener after blowing a four run lead in the eighth inning, the Red Sox have won nine in a row. He struck out eight without a walk.

Boston's high-priced slugger, J.D. Martinez, has been not tearing it up, yet - although his two-run double was encouraging. He allowed just three hits over seven shutout frames last Thursday in the Red Sox' extra-innings win over the Rays. Boston will look to supply Price with more run support tonight than they did for him last week. The Los Angeles Dodgers are a distant second at $3 billion, followed by the Chicago Cubs ($2.9 billion), San Francisco Giants ($2.85 billion) and Boston Red Sox ($2.8 billion). With the Red Sox getting off to such an impressive start, there's plenty of credit to go around. Stanton did manage to single off Sale and then double off reliever Joe Kelly for his first two-hit game since he homered twice on opening day. The problem for Price is that before that outing last July, he had been very bad against the Bombers. Porcello has been strong in his first two starts of the year while Gray has struggled against the Red Sox in his career. Tanaka is 1-1 through two starts with a 2.92 ERA, losing his last start to the Orioles. I'll take the Yankees to rebound.
