The New York Yankees hope to forget their mortifying road trip as they welcome the Boston Red Sox into the Bronx for a three-game set.

The dirt is piling up on the New York Yankees, and it’s only a matter of time before they’re completely buried.

They are coming off a road trip in which they went 2-7, scored an average of 2.9 runs per game, and were outscored 39-23. While the Bombers dropped seven of its last eight, 14 of their 20 runs in that span came between two of those games.

More importantly, they find themselves at the bottom of the lowly American League East by three games (seven games out of first).

The Boston Red Sox, a team that swept the Yankees a week ago and outscored them 20-9, come pay them a visit at Yankee Stadium.

Their arch rival is 17-11, in first place, and coming off a series in which they took two of the last three against the Chicago White Sox.

The Yankees are trying to get on track, the Red Sox are trying to stay on the track as the rivalry renews this weekend. Here’s everything you need to know prior to the first pitch tonight.
