After splitting their two-game set in the City of Brotherly Love, the Boston Red Sox head to Bronx for three games to finish out the road trip. Tonight they'll take on the New York Yankees in the first game of a three-game set at Yankee Stadium.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. If you live in the Red Sox television market you can catch the game on NESN. If you live in the Yankees television market, you can catch the game on YES. If you don't live in either market you are in luck as MLB Network will have coverage of the game (outside of Red Sox and Phillies markets). And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network.
