Welcome to tonight’s game thread!
The Yankees are in control of their destiny right now and this weekend’s four-game series against the boys from Boston is about as big as it gets.
Nova won the AL Pitcher of the Month for August and has been a different pitcher since returning from his stint in the Minors earlier this season. He goes deep into games, attacks the zone and he’s a big reason why the Yankees are in this race for a Wild Card spot right now.
Peavy is 3-1 with a 3.18 ERA since joining the Sox and he’s 0-4 with a 3.96 in his career against the Yankees.
