Pitching matchups for the Red Sox series

Jacoby EllsburyAfter losing two of three to the Orioles to open the home schedule, dropping a 5-4 decision last night, the Yankees welcome the Red Sox to town for a four-game series — Jacoby Ellsbury’s first opportunity to match up against his former club in a regular season game, something he’ll be doing quite a bit, as the Yanks and Red Sox will lock up 19 times this year.

Here are the pitching matchups to look ahead to:

Thurs., 4/10 vs. Boston
RHP Michael Pineda (0-1, 1.50) vs. RHP Clay Buchholz (0-0, 12.46 ERA) 7:05 p.m. YES/MLBN

Fri., 4/11 vs. Boston
LHP CC Sabathia (1-1, 7.50) vs. LHP Jon Lester (0-2, 2.51 ERA) 7:05 p.m. YES/MLBN

Sat., 4/12 vs. Boston
RHP Hiroki Kuroda (1-1, 2.92) vs. RHP John Lackey (2-0, 1.38 ERA) 1:05 p.m. YES/FS1

Sun., 4/13 vs. Boston
RHP Ivan Nova (1-1, 8.68) vs. LHP Felix Doubront (1-1, 9.00 ERA) 8:05 p.m. ESPN


tanaka fanned 10 but he did give up an early 3 run home run. But where was the Yankee’s offense? They had their chances in later innings but couldn’t get the clutch hits> McCann has got to get it on track at the plate> he”s not getting the job done especially with guys on base. This is where we miss Mo. Now with DRob out we’ve got closers by committee and Kelley didn’t get the job done last night. You can’t give up 2 runs as a closer and expect to win a game with game tied 3-3 in the 9th

Last match up could be high scoring.
