8/3 Yankees Game Preview vs. Boston Red Sox

The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox tonight will play in the finale of their three game set this weekend at Fenway Park with the Bronx Bombers desperately needing a victory. The Yankees will send David Phelps to the mound looking for that victory and will face off with Clay Buchholz of the Red Sox. The game will be played at 8:05 pm ET and can be seen on ESPN and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN. I'm not sure if the game will be available on MLB TV since it's nationally televised but I doubt it will be available.

Phelps is coming off a strong July in which he put up a 2-1 record with a 2.97 ERA in five starts for the Yankees. Phelps has not seen the Red Sox this season as a starting pitcher but did come out of the bullpen three times in April including notching his first career save on April 10. Phelps is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in 10 career games against Boston, three of them being starts.

Buchholz has been roughed up in his last three starts since the All Star Break, a trend that the Yankees hope to continue tonight. Buchholz has allowed at least four runs in each of the three starts and has allowed eight walks as well.

The Yankees head home tomorrow for four games at home with the Detroit Tigers and three games with the Cleveland Indians befor heading back out to Baltimore. Get your Yankees tickets for this home stand now and avoid paying shipping costs or hidden fees associated with the ticket sales. Buy now.
