Red Sox vs. Yankees lineups: Keeping it 100

The Sox, tied for first place, look to take the series in their 100th game of the year.

It’s PérezDay!

The Red Sox look to win the series from the Yankees when they finish off the four-game set this afternoon at Fenway behind Martín Pérez (1:10 p.m. NESN, TBS out-of-market).

Pérez will square off with Domingo Germán, who looks to even up the series for the pinstripes after their late-inning rally on Saturday got them in the win column. Pérez’s last start was also against the Yankees, during which he went 4 innings and gave up 3 runs—an improvement over his previous start against the Bronx Bombers, during which he went 3.2 innings and game up 3 runs, albeit all unearned. Pérez will look to go more than five innings for the first time in three weeks, having struggled against the Phillies (and Yankees, as noted) in the interim. We vote that he does so.

It’s the 100th game of the season, and the Sox are tied with the Rays heading into today’s action. Christian Vázquez is back after yesterday’s off day, and Franchy Cordero makes his second start since his return from Worcester, batting ninth and playing first place, which he practiced down on the farm. Should be fun, I think? I hope?
