Preview: New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox 4/22

The New York Yankees will travel to Fenway Park to take on the Boston Red Sox for the first time this season tonight in the first of a three game set. With a little help from mother nature the Yankees get to showcase their shiny new toy in Masahiro Tanaka tonight against Boston's Jon Lester. The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET on MY9 and MLB Network, on the computer with MLB TV, and on the radio with WFAN.

Tanaka will be getting his first taste of the Yankees and Red Sox rivalry at the best possible time coming off his best start in Yankee pinstripes. Tanaka struck out 10 Chicago Cubs his last time out and threw eight innings only allowing two hits. Tanaka now has 28 K's in his first three starts of his career setting a new Yankees franchise record.

Lester beat the Yankees just 11 days ago on April 11 beating Yankees ace CC Sabathia. Lester went into the seventh inning or beyond in all four of his starts of the month and looks to finish off the month strong, hopefully New York has something to say about that. Lester allowed two runs in 6.2 IP in his last start against the Yankees.

Go Yankees!!
