Game Thread: Sunday August 18th, Yankees at Red Sox

The Yankees and Red Sox have traded poundings the first two games of their series. After going off on Boston Friday night 10-3 the Yankee bats went dormant on Saturday and Boston thumped them 6-1. In tonight’s rubber match CC Sabathia takes the mound for the Yankees versus Ryan Dempster. Normally this is the type of match up that Yankee fans would die for: A must win game (if the Bombers are going to do anything this year then all the games are must wins) with the Yankee ace on the mound. Unfortunately, CC hasn’t had an ace season this year. Despite his struggles, and those of the larger team, the game remains an excellent opportunity for CC and the Yankees to make a statement in Boston. Enjoy!
