The historic rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox continues with yet another Sunday-night affair at Fenway Park.

New York and Boston have assumed their customary roles in the rivalry, as the Yankees are leading the division with the second-best record in the American League and the Red Sox are in last place with a below .500 record.

There's no love lost between these two teams, who have played close games each of the last two nights.

Who will be able to get the job done tonight, though?

The Parlay (+500):

  • Jameson Taillon 5+ Strikeouts
  • Aaron Judge to Hit a Home Run
  • Josh Donaldson to Get a Hit

Same-Game Parlay — Yankees vs. Red Sox

Jameson Taillon 5+ Strikeouts

Taillon has gone over this number a lot recently. He's struck out at least five batters in his last three starts, four of his last five starts and six of his last eight starts.

Five starts ago, he faced Boston in New York and struck out five Red Sox batters.

Taillon has a 20% K% this season, and the Red Sox have four hitters in their projected lineup with a K% above 20% against right-handed pitching this season.

Aaron Judge to Hit a Home Run

Judge leads all of baseball with 46 home runs. He's already homered once in this series and has homered once in five games at Fenway Park this season.

For a right-handed power hitter like Judge, this is a great ballpark for him to hit in, especially with the green monster wall in left field.

Michael Wacha has allowed a .153 ISO to right-handed hitters this season, and Judge has a .379 ISO against right-handed pitchers this season. Wacha has allowed four home runs to right-handed hitters, compared to three home runs allowed to left-handed batters.

Josh Donaldson to Get a Hit

Batting average isn't Donaldson's strong suit at this point in his career. A career .266 hitter, Donaldson hasn't hit .270 since 2017.

He still has value as a power hitter and good defensive third baseman. His bat has woken up with the hits lately, though, as Donaldson has hit .300 in the month of August so far.

Wacha is coming off the injured list to make this start against New York, but in his last four starts, he allowed five, six, seven and eight hits. Wacha has allowed a .264 average to right-handed batters, compared to .155 against left-handed batters.
