Red Sox @ Yankees for the holiday

The Sox and Yankees haven't played since April and meet this holiday weekend for four games at the Stadium in New York. This is the first time since 1997 that a Sox Yankees series hasn't featured one of the two teams in first place. The Sox are in 2nd place by 3 1/2 games and the Yankees are in 3rd place, 8 games behind the surprising Tampa Bay Rays.

The Red Sox hold a 3-2 series edge so far in the season series entering tonight's game. As always, I'll update the post throughout the weekend

The pitching matchups:

July 3: Red Sox 7, @ Yankees 0
WP= Lester (7-3), LP= Pettite (9-6)

July 4: Red Sox 6, @ Yankees 4
WP=Beckett (8-5), LP=Rasner (4-7), SV=Papelbon (25)

July 5: @ Yankees 2, Red Sox 1
WP=Mussina (10-6), LP=Masterson (4-3), SV=Rivera (23)

July 6: @ Yankees 5, Red Sox 4 (10)
WP=Rivera (3-3), LP=Papelbon (3-3)

These two archrivals will play three more at Fenway, July 25-27.

Yanks - Red Sox is always good, dramatic, competetive, interesting ball, no matter where they are in the standings.
