Red Sox, Yankees Bringing Best Records in Baseball Into First-Place Showdown
Boston and New York's three-game series in the Bronx is shaping up to be a doozy.
The last time they met in a series, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees were just fighting.
Tomorrow, when they meet for the first time since in the Bronx, they’ll be fighting for first place.
At 25-9, the Sox have the best record in MLB but are only one game better than the 24-10 Yankees, who have been hot as a pistol and winners of nine of their last 10 and six in a row.
Depending on how the three-game series goes, either the Yanks or Sox could find themselves with the best record in baseball and sitting in first place in the AL East come Friday morning.
“Look, Red Sox-Yankees is always big, and obviously they’re a great team. So we understand there will be a lot of excitement around it,” said Yankees manager Aaron Boone on Sunday. “There will be more eyes on this one and that’s what you love about being a part of this.”
New York’s Luis Severino will start the series opener against Boston lefty Drew Pomeranz followed by Masahiro Tanaka facing David Price on Wednesday night and CC Sabathia taking on Rick Porcello in the Thursday night finale.
