New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox - Current Form

One week remains in the regular season as the Yankees and Red Sox are tied atop the Wild Card race at 88-67. New York and Boston still have a little bit of breathing room ahead of Seattle and Toronto, but the home-field advantage is on the line for the one-game playoff.

New York has won five consecutive games and 10 of the past 14 contests since a seven-game skid in early September.

The Yankees rolled the Red Sox in Friday's series opener, 8-3 behind Giancarlo Stanton's four runs batted in, while the Yankees' slugger drilled the go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning of Saturday's 5-3 triumph at Fenway.

New York is 5-0 in the five last meetings with Boston, as the Red Sox have been limited to three runs or less in all five of those losses.

Pitching Matchup

N.Y. Yankees - Jordan Montgomery (6-6, 3.55 ERA)

The southpaw ended a four-start winless slide with a 7-1 victory over the Rangers his last time out. Montgomery has allowed one earned run or less in five of the past six starts, but the Yankees are 2-4 in this stretch.

New York owns a 1-3 mark in Montgomery's four starts against Boston this season, including an 0-2 mark at Fenway Park. The lone victory came in his last outing against the Red Sox in a seven-inning affair in mid-August, 5-3, as three of the four starts stayed 'under' the total.

Boston - Eduardo Rodriguez (11-8, 4.97 ERA)

Rodriguez has pitched well in September
