The Yankees and Red Sox will continue their three game series at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoon. Boston took the opener last night with a 4-3 victory over the lifeless Yankees lineup, and they'll be looking to take the series today with a second consecutive victory over their longtime rivals.

Yoenis Cespedes will make his Red Sox debut today while facing this afternoon. Cespedes, who was acquired by the Sox hours before baseball's trading deadline in his career is .313 hitter with 6 HRs and 12 RBIs in 17 against the Yankees, so you know Boston has to be happy about that.

Shane Greene (2-1, 3.28 ERA) and Allen Webster (1-0, 3.38 ERA) will be the starting pitchers today. Greene took a no-decision against the Toronto Blue Jays in his last start on Sunday, yielding three runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. Webster, meanwhile, made his first start the season on Sunday against the Rays, and he allowed two runs on three hits in 5 1/3 innings for the win.

Today's lineup against Boston:

Brett Gardner LF
Derek Jeter SS
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Carlos Beltran DH
Chase Headley 3B
Stephen Drew 2B
Martin Prado RF
Francisco Cervelli C
