The Boston Red Sox have their season on the line as they face the New York Yankees on Sunday, desperate to snap a seven-game losing streak.

What a difference a week makes. Last Sunday, as The Inquisitr reported, the Boston Red Sox stood the verge of a four-game sweep of the AL East-leading New York Yankees, after taking two of three from the second-place Tampa Bay Rays. A win in that Sunday night game would have rocketed the previously faltering Red Sox right back into the playoff race.

Instead, the Red Sox lost that game, and every game since — including three to Tampa Bay and three to the Yankees, for a seven-game losing streak. That’s the longest Boston losing skid since 2015 when the club suffered a eight-game slide and ended up in last place that season, per NESN. Now, they must win to avoid equaling that disaster, as well as to retain any hope for their 2019 season, in a game that will live stream from Yankee Stadium.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees 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. ET, 4:05 p.m. PT at the 54,251-seat Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York City, on Sunday, August 4.

In Japan, that start time will be 8:05 a.m. Japan Standard Time on Monday morning, August 5. 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 will turn to lefty David Price to halt the skid. But Price, who was Boston’s most consistent starting pitcher for much of the season’s first half, has plummeted since the All-Star break, with an 0-2 record and 6.52 ERA in four starts, per MLB.com. But Price defeated the Yankees in Yankee Stadium on June 2, and returns from paternity leave to try and do it again on Sunday night.

The Yankees counter with a lefty of their own who, coincidentally, also returns from a paternity leave to pitch on Sunday. Former Toronto Blue Jay J.A. Happ has handled the Red Sox over his career, with a 9-4 record and 3.00 ERA in 22 starts and one relief appearance against the BoSox, per Baseball Reference stats.

Price, on the other hand, has historically found the Yankees to be tough customers, with a 16-14 record and 4.85 ERA in 42 starts, plus a relief appearance, per BR.
