The Yankees come into tonight's game knowing they won't lose this series. Splitting the series wouldn't be the worst thing ever, but I think I speak for everyone in saying: please win tonight, Yankees.
Ivan Nova's last start could not have gone much worse. He gave up seven runs in just 3.2 innings against the Orioles. It couldn't get much worse, but if it somehow did, this could be a long game. Hopefully, Nova has his stuff working tonight and the Yankees can get him some run support.
For the second straight game, Derek Jeter is not in the starting lineup. You can read about that here. And here's who will be starting tonight:
|NEW YORK YANKEES||BOSTON RED SOX|
