Red Sox-Yankees: How to Watch, Stream & Bet Apple TV's 'Friday Night Baseball'

Aaron Judge will continue his chase to break the American League home run record on Friday night when the New York Yankees host the Boston Red Sox.

Long-time rivals will square off with the teams headed in different directions ahead of October. The Yankees are looking to lock up the AL East and the number two seed in the American League, while the Red Sox will primarily hope to spoil the party and pull off a Friday night upset. 

The Bronx Bombers are set to send right-hander Gerrit Cole to the bump, while the Red Sox will be countering with lefty Rich Hill. Cole has posted a 12-7 record, paired with a 3.41 ERA and 236 strikeouts, while Hill is 7-7 with a 4.70 ERA and 90 punchouts.

Will the Red Sox Play Spoiler Over Rival Yanks?

It’s no secret that defeating the Yankees always gives the Red Sox and their fans joy, even more so when their biggest rival is competing for the AL East crown. Cole has started four games against the Red Sox this season, which has seen him struggle immensely, owning a 5.48 ERA. All four starts haven’t been entirely poor, but it’s clear that the Red Sox lineup has fared well against the Yanks ace in 2022. 

Red Sox Projected Lineup:

LF Tommy Pham

3B Rafael Devers

SS Xander Bogaerts

RF Alex Verdugo

DH J.D. Martinez 

1B Triston Casas

CF Rob Refsnyder

C Reese McGuire 

2B Enrique Hernandez

Starting Pitcher: Rich Hill

Will Cole’s Polarizing Starts vs. Red Sox Continue?

It hasn’t been an easy season for Gerrit Cole when he’s gone head-to-head with the Boston Red Sox. In saying that, some Yankees hitters, including Aaron Judge, have found success against Hill in a limited sample size. The Yankees should also be able to do damage offensively in this matchup, meaning a high-scoring game could be on tap. 

Yankees Projected Lineup:

RF Aaron Judge

1B Anthony Rizzo

2B Gleyber Torres

3B Josh Donaldson

DH Giancarlo Stanton

LF Oswaldo Cabrera

CF Harrison Bader

SS Isiah Kiner-Falefa 

C Jose Trevino 

Starting Pitcher: Gerrit Cole
