It looks good for the Yankees and Red Sox to play tonight in the Bronx, according to AccuWeather. While a half-inch will fall today, the weather service predicts it should be manageable by first pitch a little after 7 p.m. The players may endure some drizzle, something they are becoming increasingly used to this season.
