The game one pitching matchup will have Hiroki Kuroda on the hill for the Yankees as he will oppose Josh Beckett from the Red Sox. Kuroda pitched very well of late as the right hander has worked his ERA to 3.17 with a WHIP of 1.22. Over his past seven starts Kuroda has allowed two earned runs or less in six of those appearances. After allowing just one earned run in seven innings on June 25th to the Indians in his next start on Saturday the Yankees hurler threw seven shutout innings to the White Sox while allowing just three earned runs and 11 strikeouts. Red Sox starter Josh Beckett was relegated to the disabled list with a shoulder problem on June 15th. In his return to the mound on June 30th the Red Sox veteran hurler allowed two earned runs with four hits in six innings of work at Seattle. The Yankees salvaged the final game of the three game series at Tampa Bay with a 4-3 win on July 4th. Boston returns home off a seven game west coast trip that saw the Red Sox drop all three games to the Oakland Athletics as they enter play tonight. Over their past five games Boston could score no more than 2 runs per game.
