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. It will be raw as temperatures will be in the 40s.

If you're willing to lose games with Johnny Barbato, maybe you deserve last place. The Yankees used Dellin Betances for one inning and just 10 pitches and he came out in a tie game. Barbato came in, allowed two hits, and THEN Andrew Miller was summoned. He gave up the game-losing sac fly. 9-17.
