After falling yesterday, the Boston Red Sox look to take the three-game set tonight in the Trojan rubber game against the New York Yankees at historic Fenway Park. First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball. You can also catch the game online at WatchESPN where available. And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network. Ryan Dempster steps in for Jon Lester, who was pushed to Tuesday, to make his 20th start of the season. In his previous 19 starts, Dempster is 5-9 with a 4.24 ERA. He's made one start against the Yanks in 2013 and took the loss after allowing three runs in five innings back on April 4th. He hasn't beat the Yankees in six career starts as he is 0-5 with a 7.29 ERA. He hasn't faced them at the Fens. CC Sabathia puts a dent in the mound for the 21st time in 2013. In his previous 20 starts, Sabathia is 9-8 with a 4.07 ERA. He's made two starts against the local nine this season and is 1-1 with a 3.65 ERA (5 ER/12.1 IP). He's made 24 career starts against the Red Sox and is 9-10 with a 4.19 ERA. 10 of those starts have come at the Fens where he is 3-4 with a 4.34 ERA> To see today's lineups, batter/pitcher matchups as well as the links from the local media, please click on the continue reading button below if you're on the home page. 52-45 59-40 1.
