Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees Pregame Notes: 9/18/2016

Written by 

The Boston Red Sox (84-64) look to sweep their four-game series against the New York Yankees (77-71) tonight on Sunday Night Baseball. Here is a look at the starting lineups, pregame notes, and daily links for September 18, 2016.

Pitching Matchup:
LHP C.C. Sabathia (NYY, 8-12, 4.10 ERA) vs. LHP Drew Pomeranz (BOS, 10-12, 3.25 ERA)



The Starting Pitchers

CC Sabathia gets the start coming off a dominant outing against the LA Dodgers. The lefty held them scoreless during his 6.1 innings and only gave up three hits.

The last time Sabathia faced Boston on July 16, he allowed five runs on nine hits over 5.1 frames en route to a loss.

On the Red Sox side, Drew Pomeranz had an ugly outing in his most recent start. The lefty only lasted two innings against the Orioles, giving up five runs.

Boston will need Pomeranz to rebound quickly as they remain in a tight race for the division title.

Holt Remains Out

Brock Holt has now gone a week without game action after injuring his shoulder.

The super utility man was said to be available last Thursday as a pinch-hitter, but did not get into the game, and has not played since.

He was also reported to be close to full health, so perhaps the lefty matchup is the main reason why he is not starting tonight. With Ortiz resting, Hanley is at DH and Shaw is playing first base, so there would have been an opening for Holt at third.

Pats Honor Ortiz

The New England Patriots invited David Ortiz to be an honorary captain for their game today versus the Miami Dolphins. The team also put together a video tribute for Ortiz prior to kickoff.

New England went on to defeat Miami 31-24.
