NEW YORK -- The last time the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox got together on July 1, Aaron Hicks hit three homers and David Price was roughed up. It added up to an 11-1 rout for the Yankees and both teams exited Yankee Stadium tied for first place in the American League East.

It seemed the dogfight for AL East supremacy was on, but the Red Sox gradually pulled away. When the rivals get together Tuesday night for the opener of a three-game series, they will have differing goals.

The game was originally scheduled to start in the afternoon but was moved back six hours due to the forecast of heavy rain in New York.
