Gerrit Cole calls as the Yankees open series in Boston

Article author:



New York Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole circled the date on the calendar, but instead of facing the Pittsburgh Pirates, the organization that drafted and developed him, his skills against the club's top rivals. Use the.

The Yankees, the leader in the American League East, will start a four-game series with host Boston Red Sox on Thursday night. Cole nods at the series opener.

But that shouldn't have happened.

The scheduled start rainout in Cleveland last Friday forced a doubleheader on Saturday and returned to the start one day. After that, Cole (7-2, 2.99 ERA) missed pitching for the first time in Pittsburgh.

The Yankees finished the Series Finale 16-0 on Wednesday and split the two-match set with the Pirates over the last two days.

"I'm not really back to absorbing it all and thinking about it and how this feels," Cole said in Pittsburgh. "Super cool. I have to take care of Boston (Thursday), but one day I'd like to sell it again here. It's really exciting."

Instead, he's one of baseball's most fierce rivals. Get another turn with one.

At the start of 11 career regular seasons with Boston, Cole holds a 5-3 ledger with ERA 4.00. In two postseason starts vs. Red Sox, including last year's AL Wild Card Game, he is 7.86 ERA at 0-2.

At the finale in Pittsburgh, the Yankees hit the season's best six home runs as part of the season's best 22-hit attack. They scored 11 times in the last two frames. Luis Severino released a shutout ball with 6 innings.

New York first baseman Anthony Rizzo has 22 RBIs and 52 RBIs and was unable to play both against Pirates due to his stiff waist.

Boston started the 2022 season by dropping two of the three games against the Yankees. Since August last year, the Red Sox have suffered eight defeats out of the last nine regular meetings between bitter enemies.

Rafael Devers, who started 78 of Boston's first 81 games in 2022, missed the last two games of the Road Series with the Tampa Bay Rays. Third baseman was seated due to a mild back and hamstring illness as the Red Sox fell to 8-4 on Tuesday and 7-1 on Wednesday.

"He was fighting there, but we have to be smart about it," Boston manager Alex Cora sits in Devers, hitting .327 with 17 home runs and 46 RBIs. Said that.

Boston's Hansel Robles, a shutdown relief leading up to last season's playoffs, will be assigned Wednesday to accommodate the arrival of Brayan Bello, the organization's top pitching prospect. Was specified for. Bello was defeated in his major league debut and allowed Raise 4 innings, 6 hits and 4 runs.

Boston's Josh Winkovsky (3-2, 3.12) will start his sixth career on Thursday, making his first appearance with the Yankees.

The 24-year-old right-handed player has scored victories in three of the last four starts and made a strong start when he lost to the Cubs in Chicago on Saturday. He walked 1 and hit 6, allowing 2 runs, 1 win and 6 hits in 6 innings.

He allowed only one long ball in 26 innings while the opposition batter hit an impressive .290 against Winkowski.
