New York native Romano starts for Reds vs. Red Sox

CINCINNATI -- Rookie right-hander Sal Romano will carry some extra motivation to the mound on Friday night when he and the Cincinnati Reds face the Boston Red Sox in the opener of a three-game series at Great American Ball Park.

Romano is focused on winning a game for the Reds and helping further solidify his spot in the rotation for 2018. However, the Long Island, N.Y., native also grew up a New York Yankees fan. Romano's beloved Bronx Bombers trail the Red Sox by three games in the American League East standings.

"I'm a big Yankees fan," Romano said. "I've been to a lot of Yankees-Red Sox games at Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park. I wish we were playing in Fenway Park. I know the Yankees are three games behind them. It'll be pretty cool to face them."
