last regular season visit to Yankee Stadium

Yes, the house that Ruth built, the one that was lavishly refurbished in the 1970's is closing it's doors and making way for the new Yankee Stadium to open in 2009.

So it's with a certain amount of sadness that these next three games will be the last of the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry to be played at the old ball yard in the Bronx.

So far in 2008, the season series is tied 6-6. Twelve down and six to go. Red Sox-Yankees is good fun and always great drama.

The pitching match-ups for the three game series look like this (with results updated after completion of each game):

Tonight (Tuesday): Red Sox 7, @ Yankees 3
WP=Wakefield (8-8) LP=Pettite (13-10) SV=Papelbon (34)

Wednesday: Red Sox 11, @ Yankees 3
WP=Byrd (9-11) LP=Ponson (7-5)

Thursday: @ Yankees 3, Red Sox 2
WP=Rivera (5-5) LP=Masterson (4-4)

These two long-time rivals will meet at Fenway Park for three at the end of September to close out the regular season.
