The Red Sox open up a 3-game series against the Yankees in the Bronx tonight.
Boston is coming in hot after riding the bats of Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford to a weekend sweep of the Oakland A’s at Fenway. The duo of high profile off-season acquisitions has been on fire recently: batting a combined .404 with 4 HR, 13 RBI and 9 Runs Scored over the past 6 games. Red Sox Nation is praying that Jon Lester will return to his Ace form after a sloppy outing one week ago against the White Sox. Tim Wakefield gets the nod for game 2, sliding back into the rotation due to injuries. AL ERA leader Josh Beckett takes the hill in game 3 in what could be an epic pitchers duel between him and CC Sabathia.
