New York Yankees Series Preview: 10-Game Home Stand Begins With The Red Sox

Players To Watch:

Dustin Pedroia:

Boston’s second baseman is red hot as he’s coming off a three-hit performance with a solo homer in a 7-3 win over the White Sox on Thursday. In the past two weeks, he is hitting .369.

Not only are his numbers against the Yankees impressive (.303/.366/.432) but he absolutley tears it up when the bright lights of New York are shining.

In 49 games at the New Yankee Stadium, Pedroia owns a .279/.358/.392 slash line with three home runs and 18 RBI and is 4-for-10 in his last two games in the Bronx. On Sunday against the Bombers, the laser show went 3-for-5 with a run scored.

Jacoby Ellsbury:

Ellsbury had two doubles out of his three hits versus the team he used to suit up for in last weekend’s series. In his last seven games, Jacoby is 7-for-21 (.333) with three doubles, three runs scored, and four walks.

Against Saturday’s pitcher (Price) he owns a career .348 batting average including one home run, two triples, and six doubles.

Brock Holt:

Although he doesn’t particularly hit the Yankees well, in last weekend’s series in Beantown, Holt went 4-for-10 with four runs scored and two RBIs.
