Yankees/Red Sox Showdown in Boston Wraps Up 1st Half of Regular Season Saturday on BASEBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA
BASEBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA – MLB on FOX sets out to close its eight-week run of BASEBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA with a bangon Saturday, July 7 at 7:00 PM ET. The always intense Yankees/Red Sox rivalry adds another chapter as Derek Jeter and the Yanks travel to Boston. New York heads into the All-Star break leading the AL East while David Ortiz and the Red Sox have righted the ship after a slow start and appear poised to make a second-half run at a postseason berth. Joe Buck, Tim McCarver and Ken Rosenthal call the action from Fenway Park before heading to Kansas City to call the All-Star Game next Tuesday. In Texas, All-Star Game No. 1 vote-getter Josh Hamilton leads the Rangers in a home encounter with Joe Mauer and the Twins. Also, the Phillies host the Braves in Philadelphia.
Coverage begins with the BASEBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA PREGAME SHOW, originating live from MLB Network’s state-of-the-art Studio 3 in Secaucus, NJ. The show is hosted by MLB Network studio host Matt Vasgersian, who is joined by analysts Harold Reynolds and Kevin Millar.
