8/23 – Yankees at Red Sox
Here are the lineups as we get ready to go for the third and final game of this series … believe it or not, the last time the Yankees and Red Sox will play at Fenway Park unless they meet in the 2009 American League Championship Series. You’d have to think that’s a distinct possibility, but until then…
This should be a great pitching matchup on ESPN between a couple of the game’s top pitchers in CC Sabathia and Josh Beckett.
The tarp is on the field as of 7 p.m. ET and some of the Yankees are spending the pre-game hours watching golf and talking fantasy football. Seems like a very relaxed atmosphere. The extra time after the loss has done them some good, you’d think.
Johnny Damon is back in the lineup and chirping about how good his right knee feels. He certainly benefited from the day off. Damon laughed that he’d dodged another bullet – something it seems like he’s been doing his whole career.
|Pitching: CC Sabathia (14-7, 3.58)|
RED SOX (70-52)
|Pitching: Josh Beckett (14-4, 3.38)|
