Yankees @ Red Sox 7/8/12

Yankees win 7-3

The last game before the All Star Break will showcase the Yankees and the Red Sox going head to head one more time, the fourth time this weekend. The Yankees have won the first two games of the series before losing one last night (Thank you Cory Wade) so this game is sort of important. The standings look a whole lot better if the Yankees can take 3/4 from the Sox rather then split the series with the rivals. All hands should be on deck as far as the bullpen goes because none of our starters or relievers will be making the trip and pitching in the all star game so they will have three days rest. I hate to say play the game like a must win but that is what I would do personally.

Ivan Nova will start for the Yankees against the Boston ace, and third straight lefty to face the Yankees, Jon Lester. The game will be televised at 8:05 pm ET on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. Everyone enjoy the last game before the break.
