Yankees - Red Sox @ Fenway

The New York Yankees meet the Red Sox at Fenway Park for the final time during the regular season this weekend, starting tonight.

Entering this series, the Yankees are 5 1/2 games behind the Red Sox in second place in the American League East. If the Yankees are to overtake the Red Sox, they must sweep this series in order to be just 2 1/2 games behind the Red Sox. If the Red Sox sweep, the lead would be 8 1/2 games and for all intent and purpose the division race would be over. The Red Sox magic number is 11. Any combination of Red Sox wins and Yankees losses reduces this number.

The Yankees are currently 3 1/2 games ahead in the wild Card standings. The Yankees lead the season series with the Red Sox 8-7.

As always, this post will be updated at the completion of each game.
