Red Sox @ Yankees 8/17/12


Mark Teixeira sits because his wrist that made him sit out a few games is still bothering him. With such a comfortable lead it is a luxury to be able to sit him so if it gets him healthy for playoff time let him sit all weekend and until the off day for all I care. 

Swisher bombs one to put the Yankees up 1-0

The Grandy Man Can!!! 2-0 Yanks

Russell Martin can too!!! 3-0 Yanks

Jeter bomb ties it up at 4!!!

Jayson CLUTCH Nix with a go ahead RBI single. 5-4 Yanks!

Swisher homers from the other side of the plate! 6-4 Yanks!

Yankees win 6-4

The Yankees will host a three game weekend series against the Boston Red Sox starting tonight at Yankees Stadium. The Yankees are fresh off of taking three out of four games against the AL West leading and two time defending American League champion Texas Rangers while the Red Sox barely held off a sweep by the hands of the pesky Baltimore Orioles. On the mound tonight for the Yankees will be Phil Hughes who will need to keep the ball down and in the ball park to stand a chance. Opposing Hughes will be left handed starter Franklin Morales for the Red Sox. The game will be televised at 7:05 pm ET on the YES Network and on MLB Network's Friday Night Baseball.
