Red Sox @ Yankees for four big games

The third place Red Sox travel to Yankee Stadium for a huge four game series this weekend, starting tonight through Monday.

The Red Sox are an uninspiring 3-5 vs. the Yankees this season. This is the second of three consecutive series between the teams to be played in the Bronx. These teams last met when they split a brief two game series back in mid-May.

This is a critical series for the Red Sox, who are six games out of first place in the AL East and 5.5 games behind Tampa Bay in the wild card standings. On paper, the pitching matchups favor the Red Sox, who send their top four pitchers out to the mound for this series.

Here are the pitching match-ups for this weekend (updates to follow after each game):

Friday, Aug 6th: Boston 6, @ New York 3
WP: Buchholz (12-5), LP: Vasquez (9-8), SV: Papelbon (27)
A good start to the weekend for the Sox. Let's hope it continues.

Saturday, Aug 7th: Boston @ New York
Lackey (10-6) v. Sabathia (13-5)

Sunday, Aug 8th: Boston @ New York
Beckett (3-1) v. Burnett (9-9)

Monday, Aug 9th: Boston @ New York
Lester (11-6) v. Moseley (1-1)

The two teams will close out their season series at the end of September and at the beginning of October.
