The New York Yankees meet their arch-rivals for the first time this season.

The New York Yankees had to settle for a four-game series split with the Tampa Bay Rays after a rare outing from Gerrit Cole. Now, they’ll face their greatest rivals this weekend when the Boston Red Sox come to town.

The Rays remain in first place, and the Yankees remain in third and 4.5 games out of the top spot.
