New York Yankees (56-45) @ Boston Red Sox (60-43)
Joba Chamberlain (2-3, 2.52) @ Josh Beckett (9-6, 3.98)
7:05 PM EDT | Fenway Park (Boston, MA)

GAME NOTES: Nothing beats Red Sox vs. Yankees in sports. Tonight is the first of three at Fenway Park between the first place Sox and the third place Yankees, trailing by just three games in the division and riding an impressive winning streak. Joba Chamberlain, who’s excelled greatly in his new starting role with a 2.52 ERA, will toe the rubber against Josh Beckett, looking to make a statement against our hated rival. Joba has never started at Fenway Park, while Beckett has struggled with the Yankees in his career overall. Manny is out tonight with a sore knee, but Papi is finally back. Coco Crisp replaces Manny in the lineup.
