What happened at Red Sox Yankees game?

The game between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium on Saturday was delayed briefly after a fan threw a baseball at Boston outfielder Alex Verdugo in the sixth inning, hitting him in the back, which led Red Sox manager Alex Cora to pull his team from the field.

The league will continue to provide scheduling updates as available. MLB.comRed Sox-Yankees Thursday game postponed

Is Luke Voit injured?

Just off the heels of a COVID outbreak, the Yankees have further roster issues.

Watch: Rougned Odor stares down Nathan Eovaldi after being hit by pitch

Rougned Odor did not appreciate an inside pitch on Saturday.

Odor was facing Nathan Eovaldi in the bottom of the first inning of Saturday’s New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox game. Eovaldi went inside with a 0-2 pitch that grazed Odor’s jersey. Odor stared down the Red Sox starter afterward:

If looks could kill, Eovaldi would have been dead on the mound.

Coincidentally, the next batter was Gary Sanchez, who also was hit on a 0-2 pitch.

The tough-guy display from Odor really shouldn’t be a surprise considering his history.

Boston Red Sox lineup: Christian Arroyo makes first base debut, Xander Bogaerts returns vs. Yankees; Jarren D

MassLive.com 18 July, 2021 - 10:00pm

NEW YORK -- Christian Arroyo is making his first career start at first base and Xander Bogaerts is back in the lineup as the Red Sox face the Yankees in the rubber game of a three-game series on Sunday Night Baseball.

Arroyo has appeared in 134 career major-league games at three positions (second base, shortstop and third base) but has never before seen time at first. He started taking grounders at the position earlier this week and will bat ninth against Yankees righty Jameson Taillon on Sunday.

Bogaerts returns after missing Saturday’s game due to wrist soreness he suffered in Friday’s win. Jarren Duran, in his second big-league game, is hitting seventh and starting in center field; Kiké Hernández is at second base and leading off.

Martín Pérez will make his first start of the second half for Boston. First pitch is scheduled for 7:08 p.m. on ESPN.

Elite Sports NY 18 July, 2021 - 12:00am

It may have been a six-inning, rain-shortened game, but the New York Yankees finally pulled off a win against the Boston Red Sox. Gerrit Cole was stellar, Gary Sanchez and Gleyber Torres each hit clutch solo homers, and all it cost was outfielder Tim Locastro tearing his ACL. Now, the Yankees can take two out of three in the series with a win on Sunday night.

Because the Toronto Blue Jays also won, the Yankees remain in fourth place in the AL East and eight games behind Boston.

Over/Under: 9.5

Yankees: -1.5

Red Sox-Yankees in delay; first pitch now scheduled for 8:05 p.m.

MassLive.com 17 July, 2021 - 06:27pm

NEW YORK -- Saturday’s Red Sox-Yankees game at Yankee Stadium is in a rain delay and will not start at its scheduled first pitch time of 7:15 p.m. ET. According to a press box announcement, the delay is due to “weather in the area.” (UPDATE: The game will start at 8:05 p.m. ET, according to the Yankees.)

As of 7:15 p.m., there is no rain falling in the Bronx and the tarp is off the field but it looks like it could be a while before the game gets underway. The bases have not yet been installed and the starting pitchers have not yet begun warming up in the bullpen.

There is a flash flood watch and severe thunderstorm watch in effect in the Bronx all night. Here’s the National Weather Service forecast:

The Sox and Yankees have already had one game postponed this week, as Thursday’s game was moved to Aug. 17 (as part of a doubleheader) because multiple Yankees players tested positive for COVID-19. The Sox won, 4-0, in Friday’s series opener; the clubs are scheduled to play Sunday night in the series finale.

Here’s what is -- tentatively -- on tap for Saturday night:

PITCHING PROBABLES: RHP Nathan Eovaldi (9-5, 3.66 ERA) vs. RHP Gerrit Cole (9-4, 2.68 ERA)
