The most storied matchup in the history of the game, the Red Sox will take on the Yankees in New York in the AL East classic.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox enter the game in New York tied with the Blue Jays for second place in the AL East at 2 games back of the leading Baltimore Orioles.
The Sox have scored the most runs in the MLB this season with 490, and also lead by a large margin in batting average with a .292 clip, ahead of the second place Marlins’ .273 rate.
David Ortiz is a large contributor in his final season, leading Boston in average, homers, RBI and OBP.
We’ve read that Eduardo Rodriguez gets the start on Saturday. The Red Sox bring the left-hander back from Triple-A Pawtucket and re-insert him into the rotation to begin the second half.
Rodriguez has pitched well against the Yankees in his career, going 3-1 with a 2.22 ERA in four starts.

New York Yankees
The once powerhouse Yankees currently sit in 4th in the AL East and appear to be sellers entering the trade deadline, though if they actually pull the trigger and do so is another question in and of itself.
The aging team has veteran pieces that should likely be dealt for future help, in the likes of Carlos Beltran, CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira, Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner, along with big ticket relievers Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman.
The aforementioned CC Sabathia is putting together his best year 2012, earning a 3.77 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 72 strikeouts thus far.
While he is no longer the 200+ K ace, the savvy veteran with over 100 post-season innings could be a nice backend of the rotation piece for a contender.

I like the matchup for Wright in the humid New York open roof park, where the knuckleball should dance.

The Red Sox have hit .284 against LHP with 20 homers, and shouldn’t have a problem with the non-strikeout chucker in Sabathia.
