Live Update: Yankees vs. Red Sox live score, updates, highlights from the 2021 AL wild-card game

The Red Sox and Yankees will add another chapter to their historic rivalry on Tuesday night.

These two teams have faced off against one another four times in postseason history — five times if you include the 1978 game 163 tie-breaker that sent New York to the playoffs. The winner has gone on to the World Series every time.

This is the earliest in the playoffs these teams have ever faced off. The winner moves on to face another AL East team, the AL-leading Rays, in the hopes of advancing to the American League Championships Series.

The Red Sox will turn to Nathan Eovaldi on the mound, the team’s best pitcher during the full 2021 campaign. On the year, Eovaldi has a 3.75 ERA and 2.79 FIP across 182.1 innings of work. In six starts against the Yankees, he has a 3.71 ERA with 34 strikeouts, 38 hits allowed and only four walks allowed in 34 innings of work.

New York will hand the ball to its ace, Gerrit Cole, who has turned in a Cy Young-caliber season. He owns a 3.23 ERA and 2.92 FIP over 181.1 innings. He has struggled when facing Boston this season, however: In four starts, he has a 4.91 ERA with 31 strikeouts, nine walks and 24 hits in 22 innings.
