Yankees' Paxton hopes to regain form against Red Sox

Last year, James Paxton's fastball averaged around 95 mph and topped out at 99, but so far this year, a drop-off in velocity is a storyline for the New York Yankees.

The Yankees believe that velocity still exists, and Paxton hopes to validate that belief Saturday night when he starts against the Boston Red Sox in the second game of a four-game series at Yankee Stadium.

Paxton will be taking the mound after the Yankees improved to 7-0 at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees opened the series with a 10-3 win Friday when Gleyber Torres had four hits, Mike Tauchman drove in four runs and Gary Sanchez homered for the second straight game.
