Red Sox take on rivals in the Bronx after disappointing last two series

Mass.live
Adrian Gonzalez, Cody Ross and Jarrod Saltalamacchia have been bright spots for the Red Sox as of late.

Tonight the Boston Red Sox visit their rivals, the New York Yankees, in the Bronx. The match-up tonight pits Aaron Cook (2-3, 3.50 ERA) against Phil Hughes (9-8, 4.09 ERA). Unfortunately, the Boston Red Sox are not doing too well since their series against the Chicago White Sox, where they won three out of four games. Since then the Toronto Blue Jays swept the Red Sox and the Texas Rangers took two out of three before this weekend series. Buchholz was stellar in the only win in the last six games. Buchholz threw 105 pitches over seven innings and allowed just one run on four hits. He also walked three and struck out one in the 2-1 Red Sox win. It’s absolutely a shame that many of the starting pitchers cannot seem to stop giving up runs in the 1st inning. Felix Doubront managed to not give up any runs in the 1st on his start this past Monday, but regardless the Rangers still pounded on his pitches in the first game of the series. Lester got beaten up by the Blue Jays in yet another horrible start. His woes continue to hurt the Red Sox and the offense is not consistent at all. It’s there or it’s not. Hopefully the rivalry will spark some fire for this weekend to help the Red Sox bring themselves up past .500 baseball again.

The game will begin at 7.05pm from Yankee Stadium. It will be viewable on NESN and MLB Network.
