Yankees at Boston Red Sox-The Rubber Match

The New York Yankees will take on the Boston Red Sox tonight at Fenway Park.  It is the finale of the three game series.  The Yankees won the first game on Friday night 3-2  and the Red Sox won the second game yesterday evening 10-4.  The Yankees are 2-9 against the Red Sox this season including 0-6 at home.  CC Sabathia who started yesterday and tied for the most runs given up as a Yankee is 0-4 against the Sox this season.  The pitching matchup tonight is Josh Beckett who has been great against Freddy Garcia who has been good but not against the Red Sox.  Here is the Yankees lineup for tonight.

Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher, Eric Chavez(DH), Russell Martin, Eduardo Nunez. 

According to Joel Sherman it looks like the Yankees will be giving Chavez regular time at DH and if that doesn't work they will call up Jesus Montero but that isn't immenent.  They would of called him up if they were going with a five man rotation but for right now they aren't taking anyone out of the rotation.  Hughes is scheduled to go Tuesday but if needed out of the bullpen tonight then Nova will take his turn.
