NYY: RHP Mike Mussina (2-2, 5.64 ERA)
Mussina looks to rebound after dropping a 5-3 decision in the first game of a doubleheader in his last outing against the White Sox. The right-hander owns a career 19-14 record with a 3.47 ERA in 50 games against the Red Sox.
BOS: RHP Julian Tavarez (2-4, 5.59 ERA)
Tavarez worked a season-high seven innings against Detroit on Thursday, allowing just one run on four hits. In his only start against the Yankees this season, Tavarez picked up the win as the Red Sox rolled to a 7-4 victory in the Bronx on April 29.
Red Sox center fielder Coco Crisp has been a pesky hitter for Mussina. In 20 career at-bats against the right-hander, Crisp owns a .400 average with three doubles and three stolen bases. On the Internet
