Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees (7:00 PM ET)
The Boston Red Sox suffered a rare shutout at the hands of the New York Yankees, who evened up their current three-game series with a dominant 8-0 win last night. David Price will be on the mound for the Red Sox for tonight’s rubber match. Price pitched well in his second start of the season against the Baltimore Orioles, where he gave up a single run in seven strong innings.
Meanwhile, the Yankees will counter with Michael Pineda, who is coming off one of his worst starts of the year against the Toronto Blue Jays. He gave up five earned runs on 10 hits – both season-highs – in just five innings in a 7-5 loss. Pineda had previously picked up four quality starts in his five starts in May, with the Yankees also going 4-1 in those games. New York is 8-3 in Pineda’s 11 starts overall this season.
The Yankees (-117) get to price to take the game and the series.
Nashville Predators vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (8:00 PM ET)
The Predators made their excellent home-ice advantage count as they won both games in Nashville to even the Stanley Cup Final up at 2-2. Goalie Pekka Rinne returned to top form as he stopped 50 out of 52 shots over those two games. Meanwhile, the Preds continued to dominate possession and finally converted their chances on goal. The Preds have outshot the Pens in all four games in the series thus far.
However, the Penguins have proven that they don’t need many opportunities to find their way to goal, especially at home. They have scored four or more goals in three of their last four games at PPG Paints Arena. The Pens have won their last five games overall at home.
The Penguins (-155) reclaim control of the series by winning Game 5 at home.
