There may be some early-morning showers in the Bronx on Friday, but the rain chances fall to 15% in the afternoon, so there should be no issues with getting that game in.
The pitching matchup is expected to have Boston’s Nathan Eovaldi facing off against New York’s Gerrit Cole. Those two pitchers were on the mound for last year’s AL Wild Card Game, which saw the Red Sox knock Cole out of the game early en route to a 6-2 victory.
