New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Chris Sale

Maybe the Yankees will finally hit Chris Sale?

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees picked up a big win in Boston last night. Aaron Judge and Luis Severino carried the team to victory. Young, homegrown talent beating the Red Sox at Fenway Park. It doesn't get much better than that.

The time for celebration, however, is over. The Yankees square off against Red Sox ace Chris Sale tonight. One of baseball's best pitchers, Sale owns a 0.91 ERA (1.19 FIP) across four starts in 2017. With noted success against the Yankees in the past, he proves no easy task for the lineup. As for the Yankees, they counter with their own ace. Masahiro Tanaka looks to continue his gradual rebound from a shaky start. Tonight we have ourselves an old fashioned #AceOff.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM. You can watch it on YES, MLB Network, or
