The Red Sox and Yankees meet for the first time this season in a three-game series at Yankee Stadium, and the pressure's all on Brian O'Halloran's men, who are propping up the AL East and were swept by their arch-rivals last season. 

Read on and we'll show you how to watch from anywhere with a VPN, and potentially for FREE.

The Yankees are currently third in the AL East at 36-25, right on the Orioles' tails but some way off the division-leading Rays. Down at the bottom of the pecking order are the Red Sox, who have been patchy all year, though their 30-29 record means they're still above the .500 mark for the season, just.

The staggering strength in depth of the AL East has been one of the biggest storylines of the MLB campaign so far, with every team currently on course for a winning season. We've seen plenty of things in the 54-year history of the MLB’s divisional era but never that, however, you can bet that the Yankees won't care one jot if they end up pushing the Red Sox below .500 here.

Both O'Halloran and Brian Cashman are sweating over the fitness of some key personnel, with the Red Sox's left-hander Chris Sale struggling with a shoulder injury that has kept him out of action recently, and the Yankees potentially missing their own left-hander Nestor Cortes. 2022 AL MVP Aaron Judge should be fit after crashing into the wall against the Dodgers last week.

It's one of the biggest rivalries in baseball, and here's everything you need to know to watch a Red Sox vs Yankees live stream online from anywhere.
