Red Sox at Yankees lineup: Pedey’s back, Xander sits on a perfect night for baseball

There could be a laser show tonight in the Bronx, where it is currently nice af.

The Red Sox enter tonight’s 7:05 p.m. contest up 4.5 games on the Yankees for first place in the A.L. East, and now they have a sparkplug popping off in their favor: Dustin Pedroia is back from injury, while Xander Bogaerts sits. It is a devastatingly nice night for baseball in the within-10-miles-of-Yankee Stadium radius (my source on this one is me), and hopefully Doug Fister can keep his strong showings going against New York’s own new addition, Sonny Gray. Here are the full lineups:
