Who's Pitching for the Yankees: RHP Michael Pineda (6-10, 5.17 ERA) is coming off two rough outings, having allowed nine earned runs on 12 hits total in his last 12 innings on the mound. While Pineda has struggled with control in his last two starts (five BBs in those starts), he has racked up 14 strikeouts.
Who's Pitching for the Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (2-5, 5.93 ERA) has pitched a lot better in his last five starts than he had earlier in the season, lowering his ERA from 8.59 to 5.93. However he has failed to pitch deep into games, going only 4.1 innings in his last outing and lasting longer than 5.1 innings in only one of his previous four starts.
