11:22 a.m.: While the big boys battle the Bronx Bombers at Fenway, the PawSox are preparing for Game 4 of their Governors’ Cup series. Pawtucket lost to Durham in Game 3 on Friday and trail the series 2-1. 11:14 a.m.: The Red Sox can clinch their MLB-best 32nd series victory with a win Saturday. No other team in baseball has won more than 28 series. Boston has also won its last seven series. 10:45 a.m.: The lineup cards are in. David Ross will get the start behind the dish and Xander Bogaerts will start at short. They’ll bat eighth and ninth, respectively. Saturday’s complete lineups are below. Red Sox (90-59) Dustin Pedroia, 2B Shane Victorino, CF David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Jonny Gomes, LF Daniel Nava, RF Will Middlebrooks, 3B David Ross, C Xander Bogaerts, SS Jon Lester, LHP (13-8, 3.86 ERA) Yankees (79-69) Curtis Granderson, CF Alex Rodriguez, DH Robinson Cano, 2B Alfonso Soriano, LF Mark Reynolds, 3B Vernon Wells, RF Lyle Overbay, 1B Brendan Ryan, SS J.R. Murphy, C CC Sabathia, LHP (13-12, 4.82 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: It was Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s turn to play the role of hero Friday. Saltalamacchia crushed a grand slam over the right field bullpens in the seventh inning to propel the Red Sox to an 8-4 victory. Boston has now won eight of its last 10 games and 17 of its last 23. Jon Lester and CC Sabathia will square off Saturday in an Opening Day rematch. Sabathia has hardly been the pitcher we’ve been accustomed to seeing over the years, while Lest has strung together some good outings. The Red Sox also have the benefit of having won their last nine games when facing a left-handed starting pitcher. Saturday’s first pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. come check back early and often.
