The Yankees defeated the Oakland Athletics 7-2 in the AL Wild Card Game on Wednesday night to advance to this series. They finished the regular season with a 100-62 record. The last time the Yankees won 100 games was in 2009, and they went on to win the World Series that year.
The Red Sox won a franchise-record 108 games this season and are looking to win their fourth championship of the century.
Boston will send ace Chris Sale (2.11 ERA, 237 strikeouts in 158 innings) to the mound for Game 1. Opposing him will be Yankees starter J.A. Happ, who is 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts for New York since being traded over from the Toronto Blue Jays mid-season.
