The Red Sox and Yankees will add another chapter to their historic rivalry on Tuesday night.

These two teams have faced off against one another four times in postseason history — five times if you include the 1978 game 163 tie-breaker that sent New York to the playoffs. The winner has gone on to the World Series every time.

This is the earliest in the playoffs these teams have ever faced off. The winner moves on to face another AL East team, the AL-leading Rays, in the hopes of advancing to the American League Championships Series.

The Red Sox will turn to Nathan Eovaldi on the mound, the team’s best pitcher during the full 2021 campaign. On the year, Eovaldi has a 3.75 ERA and 2.79 FIP across 182.1 innings of work. In six starts against the Yankees, he has a 3.71 ERA with 34 strikeouts, 38 hits allowed and only four walks allowed in 34 innings of work.

New York will hand the ball to its ace, Gerrit Cole, who has turned in a Cy Young-caliber season. He owns a 3.23 ERA and 2.92 FIP over 181.1 innings. He has struggled when facing Boston this season, however: In four starts, he has a 4.91 ERA with 31 strikeouts, nine walks and 24 hits in 22 innings.

10:00 p.m.: Brasier has not had much time pitching this season for Boston, but when he’s been on the mound, he’s been great. In 12 innings of relief work, he owns a 1.50 ERA, though the 4.84 FIP is cause for concern of regression. In 2020, he had a 3.96 ERA in 25 innings of work.

9:23 p.m.: Eovaldi gets Stanton swinging at a high 99 mph fastball for the first out of the inning.

9:17 p.m.: Bogaerts is called out on the appeal of a checked swing down to first for the first out of the inning. Huge out No. 1 for Holmes.

9:13 p.m.: Holmes has been electric for the Yankees out of the pen this year. He has a 3.60 ERA and 3.28 FIP with a 26.7 percent strikeout rate, 9.9 percent walk rate and .205 opponents’ average in 70 innings of work.

9:12 p.m.: That’s the end of the night for Cole. He will leave the third having thrown 50 pitches and retired nobody in the third inning. One former Pirate pitcher will give way to the other as Clay Holmes comes in for the Yankees.

9:11 p.m.: Devers walks for the second time today. Runners on first and second for Bogaerts with nobody out in the third.

9:07 p.m.: Hernandez hits a slow-roller up the line that Cole can’t reach in time. He’s on first with an infield single.

9:06 p.m. Red Sox scoring play: Schwarber strikes Cole again, this time in a different uniform. Schwarber launches one 435 feet to right field for a solo shot to lead off the bottom half of the third. Red Sox extend lead to 3-0.

8:38 p.m.: Former Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman has some thoughts on what it’s like to face Bogaerts.

8:37 p.m.: Gio Urshela hits a dribbler just in front of home plate that neither Eovaldi nor Kevin Plawecki can field in time, and he’s aboard with the Yankees’ second two-out hit.

8:36 p.m.: Eovaldi gets Brett Gardner to chase the 80 mph curveball down for the second out.
