The four-game series was supposed to be an opportunity for the American League East-leading New York Yankees to “bury” their arch-rivals in the pennant race, as Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorious perhaps unadvisedly put it ahead of the series, per NBC Sports. Instead, the rival Red Sox have turned the tables, dominating the Bronx Bombers over the first three games, starting with a 19-5 blowout on Thursday. In doing so, they have given themselves a renewed — if still long-shot — chance to win their fourth consecutive AL East title. The Red Sox will go for a rare four-game sweep in the series finale that will live stream from Fenway.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox Major League Baseball Sunday Night game, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 4:05 p.m. Pacific at the 37,700-seat Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, on Sunday, July 28.

In Japan, that start time will be 8:05 a.m. Japan Standard Time on Monday morning, July 30. In Australia, first pitch is scheduled for 9:05 a.m. on Monday morning, Eastern Australian Standard Time, 7:05 a.m. Western.

The Red Sox give themselves perhaps their best chance to polish off the sweep by sending lefty ace Chris Sale to the mound on Sunday. Over his last two starts, Sale appears to have reversed his season-long struggles, as NESN reports, putting in a pair of six-inning outings against the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays, winning both while fanning 12 and 10 respectively.

With Friday’s 9-5 win, the Red Sox edged past Tampa Bay into second place in the AL East, the highest position of the season since March 29 for the defending World Series champions, per Baseball Reference. But a win in Sunday lifts them to seven games behind the suddenly faltering Yankees, whose pitching has now allowed at least five runs in the team’s last eight games — though New York has won three of those games anyway.

New York counters Sale with 26-year-old righty Domingo Germán, whose 12-2 record gives him the league’s best winning percentage, despite a mediocre 4.03 ERA. In perhaps a warning sign against the Red Sox bats, Germán has only allowed 18 home runs, per BR. That’s one every five innings. The Red Sox have already hit nine round-trippers over the first three games of the series.
