The Boston Red Sox face what is likely their final chance to contend for their fourth straight American League East title when they host the first-place New York Yankees.

The 2018 World Series champion Boston Red Sox have experienced a frustrating season in 2019, and now sit 11 games behind the AL East-leading New York Yankees after 103 games. The Red Sox face the harsh reality that a fourth-straight division title is likely unattainable.

But if the Red Sox have any chance to catch the Yankees, they need to win all four games in their series against New York that opens on Thursday night. To do that, they will need better performances from three of their best hitters — Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, and Andrew Benintendi — who, as The New York Post noted, have seen their offensive performance drop off significantly this season. If they are going to get back on track, they need to start in the game that will live stream from Fenway Park.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox AL East rivalry game, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. ET, 4:05 p.m. PT at the 37,755-seat Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, on Thursday, July 25.

In Japan, that start time will be 8:05 a.m. Japan Standard Time on Friday morning, July 26. In Australia, first pitch is scheduled for 9:05 a.m. on Monday morning, Eastern Australian Standard Time, 7:05 a.m. Western.

The Yankees have won six of the seven games between the two arch-rivals so far this year, according to CBS Sports. But the Red Sox have not played a game at their Fenway Park home against the Yankees yet. The July 25 game marks the latest arrival at Fenway by a Yankees team in the history of the rivalry.

The Red Sox offense has not been all bad news, however. Xander Bogaerts, the team’s 26-year-old, seventh-year shortstop, leads the team with a.954 OPS, good enough for third in Major League Baseball, according to ESPN. Bogaerts is followed closely by 22-year-old Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers, whose.935 OPS puts him fourth in the majors.

As for the Yankees, their shortstop, Didi Gregorius, may have given the Red Sox some added motivation, declaring that his team plans to “bury” Boston in the four game series, NESN reported.
