Game 142: Knock their Sox off

Didi at Fenway (MLB.tv)

After a 4-2 homestand, the Yankees head out on a 10-game road trip, beginning with a four-game rivalry series in Boston.

Just 11 months removed from a World Series title, the Red Sox are on a downswing. Their playoff odds are minuscule. Reports have Dave Dombrowski on the hot seat. J.D. Martinez could opt out, leaving the team with a hole to replace in their lineup, let alone the holes to fix in their pitching staff.

The Yankees, therefore, can put away the Red Sox for 2019. Three wins, and Boston’s non-existent division hopes are magic number’d away. If Boston does anything less than win three of four or sweep, they’ll continue to lose ground on the postseason chase.

Tonight, it’ll be the Yankees’ most consistent starter and possible 20-game winner, Domingo German, taking on the Brewers’ Opening Day starter and a cavalcade of relievers. Let’s get to the lineups:

Yankees (92-49)

DJ LeMahieu, 3B
Aaron Judge, RF
Didi Gregorius, SS
Gary Sánchez, C
Edwin Encarnación, DH
Gleyber Torres, 2B
Brett Gardner, CF
Luke Voit, 1B
Mike Tauchman, LF

RHP Domingo German

Red Sox (75-65)

Mookie Betts, RF
Rafael Devers, 3B
Xander Bogaerts, SS
J.D. Martinez, DH
Andrew Benintendi, LF
Brock Holt, 2B
Mitch Moreland, 1B
Christian Vázquez, C
Jackie Bradley Jr., CF

RHP Jhoulys Chacin
