The Yankees close out a three game series with the Red Sox tonight from Fenway Park in Boston. After splitting the first two games, CC Sabathia takes the mound on his birthday with hopes of delivering a series win for New York. Coming into tonight, the Yankees are six games behind the Sox in the AL East. Jon Lester was originally scheduled to start but was scratched due to “normal wear and tear.” Righty Ryan Dempster will start in his place.
