The Red Sox are hosting the Yankees for the first time this season, and begin a three-game set Friday night.
The Boston Red Sox head on the road to begin a three-game series against the New York Yankees. This is the first time that the Red Sox have visited the Yankees this year, and this time around the game will have a different look as the Red Sox will be facing Ichiro Suzuki for the first time as a Yankee.
Heading to the mound for the Red Sox is Aaron Cook who is 2-3 on the year and has an ERA of 3.50. In his last three starts Cook is 0-2 and has allowed six runs.
The Yankees are countering with Phil Hughes who is looking for his 10th win of the season. Hughes faced the Red Sox back on July 7 where he earned the loss by throwing 5.1 innings, gave up 10 hits and three runs.
The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 a.m. ET and will be telivesed on NESN as well as the MLB Network, and can be heard on WEEI 93.7 FM/850 AM or WWZN 1510.
