All the information you need on how to watch or listen to the Boston Red Sox take on the New York Yankees in a Nationally televised game on ESPN.
The rivalry is renewed as the Boston Red Sox take on the New York Yankees for the first time this season.
Boston opened the first homestand of the season by sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays. They have won eight in a row to produce the first 8-1 start in franchise history.
A cupcake schedule has helped the Red Sox build an early lead in the AL East but now a greater challenge awaits. A meeting with the Yankees will give this team their first true test to see how they measure up against a contender.

The Yankees are scuffling a bit on their way to Fenway. They dropped three out of four at home to the Baltimore Orioles to fall to 5-5 for the season. New York’s +11 run differential is 5th in the AL, signaling they’ve played better than their record shows. For comparison, Boston is at +16, a marginal improvement despite a dominant record. This Yankees roster is too talented to stay around .500 for long but perhaps the Red Sox are catching them at an opportune time.
In case facing the Yankees wasn’t reason enough to get excited, it’s also a Sale Day! The series opener will be a battle of aces, as Chris Sale takes the mound against Luis Severino. Last season, Sale was the runner-up for the Cy Young award, while Severino finished third.
Both teams boast potentially explosive lineups but this game could end up being a pitcher’s duel.
