The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox wrap up their three-game series on Sunday, with ESPN broadcasting the game on Sunday Night Baseball. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees will send James Paxton to the hill, where he is looking to right the ship after a brutal opener. He lasted one inning a week ago Saturday, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk. The Red Sox will send out Austin Brice as the opener for the game. He has thrown 4 23 innings in four appearances to start the season. Most recently he came on in relief on Friday against the Yankees, setting down the side in order in the seventh inning.

The Yankees are giving left fielder Brett Gardner the day off amidst some early season struggles. Miguel Andújar is starting in his place. The Red Sox are starting Michael Chavis at first in place of Mitch Moreland to get the right-left matchup against Paxton.
