The Boston Red Sox are now 4-0 against the rival New York Yankees in 2009. Boston enjoyed its first win at the new Yankee Stadium last night with 6-4 rain delayed victory. Papelbon saved the game for the Sox striking out Cano with the bases loaded in the 9th inning.
The Yankees did have some positives in this one. The struggling Mark Texiera homered twice, once from each side of the plate. Damon also added a homer for New York in the losing effort. The Yankees may have lost Jorge Posada to a hamstring injury. Posada will not play tonight against the Red Sox. It also appears that A-Rod will be rejoining the Yankees this Friday.
Tonight’s Red Sox vs Yankees game features Josh Beckett vs Joba Chamberlain. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm.
Red Sox tickets are available for all games.
