The first-place, awesome Red Sox (70-51) look to beat the dumb Yankees (65-56) yet again when they take the field tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN, MLB Network out-of-market). It’ll be Chris Sale (2.51 ERA), the best, against CC Sabathia (4.05 ERA), a former Cy Young Award winner and generally good guy coming off the disabled list whom the Sox ought to nonetheless pound. And oh yeah, Sale. Who rules. Little else to report. Here are the full lineups:
