After getting a much needed victory last night by a final score of 6-4, the New York Yankees will look to take the third and final game of the series from the Boston Red Sox tonight at Fenway Park.
A day after being called out by their manager, and their hitting coach, the Yankees’ offense came to life last night. Derek Jeter, Jacoby Ellsbury, Carlos Beltran, Mark Teixeira, and newcomer Stephen Drew, all provided big hits that helped lead the Yankees to victory. After getting off to a rough start, Shane Greene was able to rebound, and give the Yankees a solid start.
This is probably one of the few series left in the season that the Red Sox are really going to go all out to try and win, considering the fact that they are dead last in the AL East, and have given up on the season by trading away a lot of their big name guys.
The Yankees however, have done the exact opposite by acquiring Drew from the Red Sox, and Martin Prado from the Diamondbacks, in an effort to try and improve the team.
The Yankees currently lead the season series against Boston 7-5, and will look to improve on that ratio tonight.
