The Red Sox have the right starter on the mound, as they look to overcome their worst week so far of the 2018 season. Since starting off in fireworks fashion at 17-2, they have gone 2-5 in their last 7 games while the Yankees have gone on winning streaks of 8 games apiece.

Rick Porcello is on the mound – perfect guy to have as a stopper. He is set to salvage this 3 game set, while capping off April with a perfect 5-0 record.

Matt Andriese is the perfect starter for the Sox offense to face against, as they have pretty much owned him in the times he’s faced them…. Especially when he pitches in Fenway Park.
