Yankees Vs. Red Sox, Game 3: Rain Postpones Sunday's Series Finale

The New York Yankees will not get their shot of earning a three-game series sweep of their rival the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. That's because the prime time match-up, which was suppose to feature ace CC Sabathia against Boston's Daniel Bard, has been postponed to to rainy weather conditions at Fenway Park. There has been no announcement about when the game will be reschedule.

The postponement came around 3 p.m. ET, as rain began to fall on the 100-year-old park and isn't expected to stop until sometime Monday. The cancellation came in the middle of a possible three-game sweep of the Red Sox, who blew a nine-run lead to the Yankees on Saturday.

The Yankees will travel to Arlington, TX to play the Texas Rangers in a three-game series. According to writer James Walker, Sabathia is expected to take the mound and will oppose youngster Derek Holland.

Spoiling a 100th birthday party (check). A massive come-from-behind victory (check). A three-game series sweep at Fenway Park? That will be determined Sunday night, when the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox finish off three-game series at 8:05 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Yankees Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Yankees Mount Massive Comeback, Clobber Red Sox

Saturday afternoon at Fenway Park was a reminder that no lead is safe against a New York Yankees lineup as powerful as it is rich.

The Boston Red Sox stormed out to a 9-0 lead on Saturday after chasing Yankees starter Freddy Garcia in the second inning, but a Mark Teixeira solo home run in the top of the sixth inning started what would prove to be a memorable offensive run by New York.

Nick Swisher's grand slam in the seventh cut the gap to -5, and Teixeira swatted his second home run of the afternoon shortly thereafter, a three-run shot that made the score 9-8.

Swisher would give New York's its first lead of the day with a two-run double in eighth inning, and the Yankees would go on to pile up 15 runs in total on the afternoon.

The 12 RBIs from Swisher and Teixeira would prove to be more than enough for New York, although Garcia's continued struggles in the start of the season remain a cause for concern.

These two teams will square off on Sunday night for the final game in their three-game set, and the Yankees have a chance to put five and a half games between themselves and Boston in the standings with a win.
