Masahiro Tanaka, Jon Lester Square Off In Battle Of The Aces (Video)

After taking three of four from the Red Sox earlier this month in New York, the Yankees come to Boston for the first time this season as they open up a three-game set on Tuesday night.

It’ll be a battle of the aces as Masahiro Tanaka, who signed a seven-year, $155 million deal with the Yanks in January, will get his first taste of the Boston-New York rivalry when he takes the mound. The Japanese hurler will be opposed by Jon Lester, who got the best of the Bronx Bombers on April 11, allowing just two runs over 6 2/3  innings.

Check out the video above to hear Don and Jerry’s preview of the matchup.
