The New York Yankees will play their first home series of the season this week as they take on their rivals, the Boston Red Sox.

Predicted Record to this point: 4-1
Actual Record: 4-1

The past week has been bizarre, to say the least for the New York Yankees after the Marlins’ problems with COVID-19 impacting the Phillies, therefore postponing the Yankees/Phillies series. With that, the Yankees played a two-game series in Baltimore against the Orioles, which they managed to win 9-3 and 8-6.

With those two wins, the Yankees improved their record to 4-1 on the season, and will now face the Red Sox for a three-game series in the Bronx.

Unlike the Yankees, the Red Sox got off to a horrendous start to their 2020 season with a 1-4 record, but they have since bounced back after two straight wins over the Mets and now hold a 3-4 record.

As for the Yankees, they have put together three straight wins, including a win on Thursday night where they entered the ninth inning down 6-5 to the Orioles, but managed to win 8-6 thanks to an Aaron Judge three-run home run.

This was the second time we saw the Yankees come from behind late in a game to get a win this season, and it shows the resilience they have. The first was a 3-2 win over the Nationals after they trailed 2-0 going into the seventh inning.

The Red Sox are a much different team in 2020 than they were in 2019 after losing Mookie Betts and David Price, and because of it, they have struggled quite a bit. But even against a better team in 2019, the Yankees still went 14-5 against Boston while sweeping them multiple times as well.

If they can do that against a Red Sox team that included one of the best players in the MLB in Mookie Betts, why can’t they do it against a team without him?

So far I have been spot on with my predictions as I have predicted the Yankees would hold a 4-1 record at this point which has turned out to be true. That being said, let’s see if we can keep it up.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at the Yankees/Red Sox series and give predictions for each game!
