In typical Red Sox/Yankees fashion, the two teams are tied sitting atop the AL East in the month of August. Just in time to break the tie is a three game set between the two bitter rivals that begins tonight at Fenway Park.
Despite a red hot month of July when the Red Sox went 20-6, they only held a 2 game lead on the Yankees entering August. That lead has now disappeared thanks to a Red Sox split against Cleveland and a Yankee sweep in Chicago.
So the stage has been set for the weekend showdown and although we won’t see Beckett vs. Sabathia – round 4, the three games in itself will more than make up for not having the marquee showdown.
A big thank you to Ricky from the Yankees Fansided network – Yanks Go Yard, for helping out with the Series 6 Pack. Who says Yankee and Red Sox fans can’t get along? Enjoy.
