Scouting Report:
Red Sox: The sinkerballer has been plagued by control problems in his last couple of starts. Most recently, Masterson walked five and allowed four runs over six innings in a 5-4 loss to the Rays. Masterson has walked three or more batters in four of his last five starts. In six June starts, Masterson was 3-2 with a 4.54 ERA. This is his first career start at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees: Mussina?s ERA -- currently at 3.87 -- has been under 4.00 over his last four starts. It seems like it's just a mistake here and there that's costing him. He hasn't walked more than two batters in a game this season. In 54 career starts against Boston -- the most he has against any team -- the righty is 19-17 with a 3.80 ERA.
