Better late than never.
The New York Yankees are making their first trip of the season to Fenway Park and open a four-game series Thursday with the Boston Red Sox.
This will be New York’s first visit to the field since last year’s 6-2 loss in a Major League game.
This time around, the Yankees (59-23) will take the field by 14 games over the Red Sox (45-37) and the Toronto Blue Jays in the MLS Eastern Conference.

New York will face a starting course in Boston turned Swiss, with Chris Seal, Nathan Evaldi, Garrett Whitlock, Rich Hill and James Paxton on the hit list.
But the Red Sox weren’t bothered by their underdog situation this weekend. In the Boston Globe:
It’s always good to play [Yankees]” Alex Verdugo He said before losing the series Wednesday. “It’s a competition. So I think it’s going to be good. It’s a really good team this year. They’re playing well, and I think we’re playing well too. So it’s going to be one of those things where the cards can say whatever they want, but you have to go out and compete and play. We’ll find way to do what we can to win.”
“They are having a great season,” the coach Alex Korra He said after Wednesday’s loss to Rice regarding the Yankees. “They are doing a great job. We will see what happens. We feel like we belong in the conversation.”
The Red Sox will see a lot of Yankees along the stretch. Masslive.com reports that 16 of Boston’s 80 remaining games – or 20% to be exact – will come against New York.
“Our measuring stick is right in front of us every day,” Cora said. “We have 45 wins and I think we have the third or fourth best record in MLS. We made a terrible start and that’s where we are. On a daily basis, no matter who you play, this is the day we have to attack. … We are where we are. Which we are in. We won 45 games in the first half and we know where we are in the standings and what we have to do.”

Red Sox will send rookie Josh Winckowski up the hill on Thursday. And will be opposed by the Yankees ace Gerrit Cole.
“In terms of being a Yankee, I’m going to treat it like it’s another start,” Winkowski said. “It doesn’t really matter what the opposing squad will do, I will try to do the same in every match.”
Michael Washa, who was recently pushed by a dead arm, is scheduled to take the pile on Friday to Boston. The Red Sox didn’t name a rookie for Saturday. Nick Pevita will get the ball rolling on Sunday.
The Yankees are set to face Nestor Curtis, Jordan Montgomery and Jameson Tellon, all of whom have epochs below 4.00.
