Red Sox could clinch division in series opener vs. Yankees

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 afternoon for the opener of a three-game series, they will have differing goals.

The Red Sox (103-47) will clinch their third straight AL East if they win one game in the series. When they clinch, it will be their fourth in seven seasons since the Yankees last won the AL East in 2012.
