The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees begin a three game set tonight at Fenway Park. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.

The Boston Red Sox (42-40) and New York Yankees (49-32) continue the best rivalry in baseball as they start a big three game series Friday night at Fenway Park.

Both the Yankees and the Red Sox will be missing key contributors for this weekend's series, with New York missing starting pitchers CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte, and the Red Sox will be without second baseman Dustin Pedroia after injuring his thumb against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday.

With Sabathia and Pettite unable to go, the Yankees will turn to Hiroki Kuroda (8-7, 3.18 ERA) for Friday's opener. In his first start after Sabathia and Pettitte went on the disabled list, giving up only three hits and no runs in seven innings against the Chicago White Sox. Kuroda will need to have another start like that to help out an already taxed bullpen.

The Red Sox will counter with Josh Beckett (4-7, 4.06 ERA), who is on a bit of a roll lately. Beckett has allowed two earned runs or less in five of his last seven starts, including his last start against the Seattle Mariners when he gave up four hits and two runs in six innings of work.

Date/Time: Friday, July 6, 7:10 p.m. ET
