New York Yankees: Bad timing for Giancarlo Stanton and his struggles

He has now struck out 20 times in his first 10 games with the Bombers, with his average plummeting to.167.

Right now, the reason for his struggles could actually be pinned on NY pressure.

To have those teams represent your first nine games was a gift, and the Red Sox did what a good club should - unwrapped the present to expose all of its deficiencies. The Red Sox trailed 7-2 entering the eighth. He'll be 33 in August, so there might be some room for concern that he is on the decline - but he looked great coming out of the bullpen after returning from the DL last year (15.1 IP, 8 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 19 K, including the playoffs), and he's been just as good through two starts this year. NY is 3-4 ATS over its last seven games and the over has cashed in six of those seven.

It's a small sample size, but the Red Sox appear to be capturing people's interest so far this season. The Yankees have an over/under record of 6-4.

His success against southpaws will especially serve him well when he'll step into the box Wednesday to face David Price, whom he has the most experience against of any Boston pitchers. The team's ratings on NESN are up 40 percent through nine games compared to a year ago, per the Herald's Jason Mastrodonato. On the other hand, the Red Sox have netted 5.3 units and are 3-5 ATS when facing a righty starter.

The thought of being swept by the Red Sox, which is a real concern for the Yankees considering how they just dropped three of four to the lowly Baltimore Orioles, could be catastrophic. However, the Yankees also have to address the future of their own shortstop, Didi Gregorius, who is showing early this season that he deserves a new deal from NY.

The biggest highlight of the offensive outburst came courtesy of Mookie Betts, who absolutely crushed a grand slam over the Green Monster off Yankees left-hander Chasen Shreve.

The Boston Red Sox's bats had been relatively quiet despite their hot start to the season, but that all changed Tuesday night at Fenway Park. Last year, he was 17-8 with a 2.90 ERA in 32 starts overall, including 7-3 with a 3.16 ERA in 13 starts here at home.

Machado returned to playing short stop for the Orioles after spending his first six seasons in the majors at third base. The team has a slash-line of.278/.349/.448 over its last five matchups and is 5-0 SU during that span. Faced with the choice of pitching to Aaron Judge or Stanton with two outs and the potential winning run on second, Orioles manager Buck Showalter opted to try his luck with the player who had led baseball with 59 home runs in 2017. He'll still have to be cleared by team doctors prior to Tuesday's game, and while the Yankees are hopeful to have their star catcher back in action, Cashman noted he "can't guarantee anything".

While Busch hadn't won in the first six races, he had finished second three times - twice to Harvick - and is the NASCAR Cup Series points leader.

Their pitching staff has struggled, allowing 12 homers and 42 runs while being backed up by a defense that has given up 10 errors in as many games. Kahnle, a huge bright spot for the Yankees in the second half last season, saw his ERA jump to 7.11.
