Red Sox. Yankees. Single game elimination. Is there any better way to start off the 2021 MLB playoffs?

Perhaps the biggest rivalry in North American sports will take center stage on Tuesday as they face off in the American League wild card game at Fenway Park with a trip to Tampa Bay and the American League Divisional Series on the line.

After the Red Sox used Chris Sale on Sunday to start their final regular-season game, they will turn to Nathan Eovaldi to start opposite Yankees ace Gerrit Cole.

The pitching matchup will pit the American League’s pitching WAR leaders against one another, according to Fangraphs. Eovaldi recorded a 3.75 ERA, but a 3.36 FIP across 182.1 innings of work and a 5.6 fWAR. Eovaldi struggled in his last start against New York, however, as he allowed seven runs on seven hits in 2.2 innings. 

Cole has been the ace the Yankees hoped for when they signed him for nine years and $324 million ahead of the 2020 season. He has a 3.23 ERA, 2.92 FIP and 5.3 fWAR in 181.1 innings this season. His last time out against Boston, when he started against Eovaldi, he collected the win after allowing three runs over six innings with six strikeouts, three walks and five hits.
