The Yankees and Red Sox go under the lights live on ESPN once again tonight as they wrap their latest series.
The Red Sox look to finish off the Yankees tonight as they close out their latest series against their long-time rivals live on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell. The Red Sox already already took the first two games in the teams’ weekend series 4 – 2, 8 – 0 Friday and Saturday respectively. Nathan Eovaldi is expected to get the start for the Yankees tonight. Eovaldi’s last time on the mound was April 25th against the Rangers. He was impressive in that game, facing 24 batters and striking out 6 over the course of 7.2 innings. He also kept the Rangers’ bats relatively quiet over that time, allowing only 2 hits but not one run, no home runs, and only 2 walks.
On the other side of the ball David Price is expected to take the mound for the Red Sox. Price has been perfect for Boston so far this season going 3 – 0 in his starts so far. His last time on the mound was April 26th against Atlanta. Price struck out 14 of 33 batters over 8 innings allowing only 2 runs and 2 earned runs on 6 hits. He walked only 2 of those 33 batters and kept the ball well inside the park, allowing 0 home runs.
Dan Shulman will be in the booth for tonight’s game. He will be joined by analysts Aaron Boone and Jessica Mendoza for additional commentary. Reporter Buster Olney will be on the field with all of the latest in-game news, interviews and more throughout the game. The game will be simulcast live on ESPN Deportes for ESPN and the MLB’s Spanish-speaking audiences. And those that won’t be near a TV during the game can also still catch it live as it will be broadcast live on ESPN Radio and online via WatchESPN.
Before the first pitch is thrown, Karl Ravech, Dallas Braden, and Tim Kurkjian will preview the night’s game while analyzing the weekend’s previous games live on Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown. The trio will be live on site in Boston with all of the latest on tonight’s game and a recap of the weekend’s games. Broadcast begins at 7pm ET on ESPN.
