After a surprisingly good performance from Vidal Nuno, the Yankees have a chance to clinch a series victory over their biggest rival with Masahiro Tanaka taking the hill against Red Sox ace Jon Lester. Of note: the Red Sox called up hot-hitting prospect Mookie Betts for tonight's game, but they are wisely avoiding forcing him to make his MLB debut against Tanaka and his splitter.
Go #TanakaTime, go baseball.
