Listed below are the results of how Red Sox batters have fared against Yankees pitchers and how Yankees batters have fared against Red Sox pitchers. The averages listed are, in order, batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage. In cases where pitchers don't have a significant body of work, only totals are listed.

(This might be useful to bookmark/print for the weekend. Hopefully this is helpful/informative, or else there has been some time wasted.)
