Boston Red Sox Lineup: Franchy Cordero Batting 8th, Bobby Dalbec Sits vs. Yankees; Michael Chavis Batting Last, at First Base

The Red Sox take on the Yankees in hopes of clinching a four-game series victory, in the third game of four Saturday afternoon.

Eduardo Rodriguez was told by manager Alex Cora to report to the field late, after suffering a migraine last night which had him removed from the ballgame in just the second inning. Cora commented today on the lefty, saying that he is “feeling better.”

Fortunately for Boston, they went on to win 6-2 behind Rafael Devers’ two long balls and eight innings from the bullpen, where they allowed just one run.

Nathan Eovaldi gets the start today, as the Sox will probably need a lengthy start from the righty after the bullpen tossed eight innings.

Franchy Cordero will get his first start since being called up, as he struggled earlier in the year with the team and was sent down after hitting just .171.
