The Boston Red Sox will try to play the role of spoiler in their three-game series against the New York Yankees.

The Boston Red Sox will play host to the New York Yankees for the start of a three-game set on Tuesday night at venerable Fenway Park.

Boston doesn't have much to play for at this point, after falling to the bottom of the AL East. However, it's always fun to play the role of spoiler against your most heated rival. The Red Sox will obviously need to play much better than they have in their last 12 contests, amassing a brutal 1-11 record.

Jon Lester will get the ball for Bobby Valentine's squad as he seeks a quality start. The 28-year-old has been hit hard this season to the tune of a 9-11 mark and a 4.99 ERA. In his last outing, Lester was only average against the Seattle Mariners. The southpaw allowed three runs in six innings on nine hits and two walks.

The Bronx Bombers come into Tuesday with just a one-game lead over the surging Baltimore Orioles. They'll turn to Hiroki Kuroda in hopes of gaining some momentum.

Kuroda has been solid the entire campaign, sporting 13 wins and a 3.14 ERA. However, Kuroda has been knocked around in his last two games, giving up four earned runs in each of them.
