Red Sox Vs. Yankees, Game 3: Weather Postpones Sunday's Series Finale

The Boston Red Sox will not collect a victory that will snap their current five-game losing streak, however, they got the next best thing on Sunday -- a rain out. The rainy forecast at Fenway Park has forced the finale of the three-game set against rival the New York Yankees to be postponed. A makeup date has yet to be announced.

Boston (4-12), which was suppose to toss reliever turned starter Daniel Bard against Yankee ace CC Sabathia, gets a much needed break as it will try to regroup from two of the worst regular season losses in recent memory.

On Friday, the Red Sox lost the 100th anniversary game at Fenway Park, and then on Saturday blew a nine-run advantage to lose to New York 15-9.

It is currently unknown what Boston's new pitching rotation will be, as it now will travel to Minnesota for a three-game set with the Twins.

Red Sox Vs. Yankees, Game 3: Game Time, TV Schedule, Pitching Match-Ups

If the weather permits, the Boston Red Sox will try to salvage what they can out of a three-game series with rival the New York Yankees on Sunday (8:05 p.m. ET on ESPN). The Red Sox (4-12) will try and do so with reliever turned starter, Daniel Bard, who will oppose Yankee ace CC Sabathia in the series finale.

Of course, Boston's chance to right its ship may need to wait as the weather forecast is calling for showers all day.

Kevin Youkilis Injury: Red Sox First Baseman Leaves Game With Quad Contusion

According to Buster Olney from ESPN, Kevin Youkilis has been removed from Saturday's game against the Yankees with a quad contusion.

Youk was 0-1 with a run scored before being removed. The 33 year old is having a rough start to the 2012 season. He was batting .195 coming in to Saturday's contest, with one home run and five runs batted in. He's swinging and missing at 8.9 percent of pitches seen, which is the highest percentage of his career. Not surprisingly, he's striking out at the highest rate ever. There is a silver lining, however. His low BABIP of .259 – nearly 70 points below his career average – suggests he's experienced a little bad luck.

The Red Sox lead the Yankees by a score of 9-0 in the sixth inning.
