Old foes meet for the seventh time this season. This time the stakes are different as it is winner takes all in this one-off postseason game as the two rivals meet in the AL Wild Card with the winner playing the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Red Sox and the Yankees both ended the regular season with the same win-loss record with 92-70 each and the same percentage.
While the Yankees lost their most recent series to the Tampa Bay Rays, all they needed was to win one game and did so in game 3 as they ended with a 2-1 loss.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox cemented their spot in the postseason with a clean sweep series victory over the Washington Nationals 3-0.
