New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox Live Stream: How To Watch MLB Online

|

Tonight on ESPN, we’ll be treated to the first meeting between the New York Yankees (11-7) and Boston Red Sox (11-8) of the 2017 MLB season. The greatest rivalry in baseball was supposed to kick off last night, but the weather didn’t cooperate. The game was rained out and rescheduled to take place as part of a day-night doubleheader on July 16.

Taking the ball for the Yankees will be right-hander Luis Severino (1-1). The 23-year-old was fantastic in his first two starts this season, giving up just six runs (five earned) on eight hits and a walk while striking out 21 batters over 15 innings. He ran into some trouble in his last start, though, losing a decision to the Baltimore Orioles after surrendering four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out six batters over five innings.

Opposing Severino will be the 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello. The sinkerballer has experienced some tough sledding this year, going 1-2 with a 5.32 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over his first four starts. But it hasn’t been all doom and gloom for the 28-year-old righty, as he’s struck out 23 batters over 23.2 innings and posted quality starts in three of his four outings.

Now that we’ve examined the pitching matchup, let’s breakdown all of the different ways you can watch the Yankees take on the Red Sox in Fenway Park.
