BBTN: Red Sox-Yankees preview
May, 16, 2010
The Baseball Tonight crew previews this week's Red Sox-Yankees two-game series, which kicks off Monday at Yankee Stadium (video above) and features two intriguing pitching matchups.
Monday's matchup pits the Yankees' Phil Hughes, an early season Cy Young contender with a 5-0 record, 1.38 ERA and .165 average against, against Daisuke Matsuzaka, who was brilliant in his last outing (7 IP, 1 run, 9 K's, 0 walks).
On Tuesday, Josh Beckett will return to the mound after missing his last start with back spasms trying to get on track after surrendering at least seven earned runs in three of his last four starts. He'll face Yankees ace CC Sabathia.
