ESPN will host Wednesday’s matchup between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees with first pitch set for 7:05 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, and will also air on NESN in the Red Sox market and on YES in the Yankees market. Nick Pivetta and Andrew Heaney will take the mound for the Red Sox and Yankees, respectively.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this MLB matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

Wednesday marks the third game in the series after the Yankees won each outing in Tuesday’s doubleheader. With their two wins, the Yankees pulled ahead of the Red Sox in the AL East standings, both five games behind the Rays for first. Pivetta enters the third and final matchup of the series with a 5-3 record and 3.09 ERA on the road for the 2021 MLB season. Heaney’s got a 4-4 record at home this year, with an ERA of 5.84. DraftKings Sportsbook has the Red Sox as road underdogs in this outing with moneyline odds at +100.
