The Yankees have lost five straight, including a four-game Subway Series sweep at the hands of the Mets. ... The Sox are 11-6 in a stretch of 20 games in 20 days that ends on Sunday. ... Lester is 10-4, 4.08 in 22 career starts against the Yankees, 7-2, 4.14 in 12 starts at the latest version of Yankee Stadium. Lester faced the Yankees on Opening Day and allowed two runs on five hits over five innings. ... Ellsbury is 16 of 40 (.400) in his last 10 games with eight walks. ... Pedroia has hit safely in 20 of the last 22 games at 32 of 86 (.372). Pedroia has 13 RBIs in the last 13 games. ... Iglesias is 9 of 23 since getting called back up. ... The Sox are 13-8 against the AL East.
