Final chance for Yankees starts tonight

New York begins a three-game series with Boston tonight at Yankee Stadium that could be do-or-die for the Yankees. At least in terms of the AL East title. 
The Yanks trail the Red Sox by eight games going into the three-game set. They need to sweep to have any realistic chance of catching Boston. In fact, with the Red Sox putting Dice-K, Josh Beckett and Curt Schilling on the mound during the next three nights, the Yanks could find themselves wounded as well in the wild-card fight, where they already trail Seattle by two games and have Detroit breathing down their necks.
The Yanks' Andy Pettitte goes against Daisuke Matsuzaka tonight. It's Beckett vs. Roger Clemens tomorrow. And Schilling faces Chien-Ming Wang on Thursday.
