The Yankees at even money at home in the middle of a pennant race is a no-brainer. They socked six home runs last night, but Andy Pettitte still finding his way after a two month layoff was awful. The Yankees have their bullpen working magic in the second half of the season. Kerry Wood was a steal, and he hasn't allowed a run since August 3, and has pitched over 22 innings. Ivan Nova is raw, but has great stuff and the Yankees have won each of his last five starts. I look for this one to be close for six, but the Yanks will get into the Sox’s weak bullpen and put the game away. The Yanks are 51-28 at home, and as much as most think lefties stop the Yanks, guess again, they are 150-65 in their last 215 at the Stadium against them. I'll go with the Yankees in this one.
