Who will win Red Sox vs Yankees?

Both teams finished the regular season with 92 wins and 70 losses. They each won dramatically on the final day to make this match-up a reality.

Boston has the home-field advantage and is 49-32 at home this season. The Yankees won't be daunted by that, however. New York swept Boston in a 3-game series at Fenway Park barely 2 weeks ago and recorded 46 wins, 36 losses both at home and on the road this season.

The battle between Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and Yankee hitters Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton will be pivotal. All-star slugger Judge has been the Yanks' best player all season. He and Stanton have both hit 10 home runs since the beginning of September. Eovaldi has played well against the Yanks this season but was obliterated in September's sweep when Stanton hit homers in all 3 games.

New York has the best record in the league since 4 July, recording 51 wins and 29 losses, but Boston has the Yanks 10-9 for the season. We're picking the Yankees but, really, this is anyone's game. A classic awaits.
