Who is starting for the Yankees?
RHP Domingo German (12-2, 4.03 ERA), who returned from the IL with three straight strong starts before a setback in his last outing against the Twins. The right-hander allowed just three runs in 18 innings, collecting wins in all three starts before Minnesota tagged him for nine runs (eight earned) on July 23. In his only appearance against the Red Sox this season, German lasted just 3.2 innings, yielding three runs on six hits.
Who is starting for the Red Sox?
LHP Chris Sale (5-9, 4.00 ERA), who has been searching for consistency throughout the 2019 season. He's allowed two runs in 12 innings over his last two starts, earning wins in both outings, but surrendered five runs in each of two starts before that. The Yankees have had Sale's number so far this season, scoring eight runs over the 11 innings in which they've faced him.
The Yankees are off Monday before returning to Yankee Stadium for a brief, two-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Yankees have yet to announce a starter for Tuesday's 7:05 p.m. game, but will face Taylor Clarke (3-3, 6.10 ERA).
