The New York Yankees continued their lackluster performance against the rival Boston Red Sox, as a Rafael Devers home run helped Alex Cora once again take down the Bombers and move up the AL East standings.
With the trade deadline approaching, that game appeared to be as close to a must-win as possible for the middle of July. Instead, the Yankees once again came up short thanks to some clutch hitting from their rivals up north.
The Yankees will have one more crack at it taking down Boston once again, as a loss and a Blue Jays will have a World Series favorite relegated to fourth place in the division.
Will the Yankees finally overcome their hex at Fenway, or will yet another tally be chalked up in an ever-growing loss column?

Yankees vs Red Sox Odds Today
The Red Sox are again the moneyline favorites at -165 (bet $165 to win $100), whereas the Yankees are expected to lose again at +152 (bet $152, get $100). The Yankees are +1.5 against the spread.
The over-under for this game is 9.0, and with the way the Yankees finished last night, Boston might get all of those runs by themselves.
Yankees vs Red Sox Pitching Matchup
The consistently inconsistent Jameson Taillon will get the ball for the Yankees today. After returning to the starting rotation following some encouraging performances, Taillon is still running out of chances to prove he can be a long-term starter for this team.
The Red Sox will counter with Nathan Eovaldi today, who has made a habit of dominating the Yankees. If we’ve learned anything about the Yankees this year, it’s the fact that they rarely put up a fight against players on a hot streak like this.
Yankees Starting Lineup
Yankees vs Red Sox Prediction Today
The Yankees were almost gifted a win yesterday, as Eduardo Rodriguez lasted just one inning with Cole on the mound, and they still ended up taking the L in that game. With Perez likely going to carve up the depleted lineup, don’t expect the Yankees to turn it around anytime soon.
Red Sox 5, Yankees 3.
