David Phelps (4-4, 3.34) takes the mound for New York, returning to the starting rotation after two weeks in the bullpen. In his last start, Phelps allowed only one run in 6.2 innings in a no-decision.
Jon Lester (9-14, 4.94) looks to snap a three-start losing streak as he gets the start for Boston. He last faced the Yankees on Sept. 11, where he got a no-decision after allowing three runs in 5.1 innings of work.
With a win coupled with a Baltimore loss, the New York Yankees could clinch the AL East Tuesday.
