WEATHER: Sloppy at best. It would be nice to have that Toronto roof down here in Boston tonight.

MOST SINCE THE SKIPPER: Francisco Cervelli has 70 hits, the most in a season for a Yankees catcher other than Jorge Posada since Joe Girardi had 70 in 1998.

TWO PER GAME: Derek Jeter needs six more hits to tie Al Simmons for the 35th most hits all time. Simmons has 2,928. If Jeter can get eight more hits, he’ll tie Jake Beckley and Rogers Hornsby for 33rd place.

ON THIS DATE: It was on October 1, 1961 that Roger Maris hit his 61st home run to establish a new single-season home run record in baseball.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN: This is the third time in history that the Yankees have opened and closed a season by playing in Boston. They did the same thing in 1938 and 1950, two seasons in which the Yankees advanced to the World Series and swept.

IT’S BEEN A WHILE: The previous nine games between the Yankees and Red Sox were played in New York. According to Elias, it’s the first time either New York or Boston played nine consecutive home games in the season series since 1944, when they played 22 times including nine straight in the Bronx.

UPDATE, 9:44 p.m.: Here’s comes the tarp. Not good folks. Not good.
