Ryan Dempster makes his first start for the Red Sox tonight against the Yankees. So far, so good for the Sox - two wins against NYY to begin the season.

John Farrell's club has beaten the Yanks 8-2 and 7-4 with a combination of good pitching, timely hitting and excellent defense.

The 2-0 start is the best start since 1999. The 2-0 start against vs the Yankees in an opening series is the best since 1935. And, the 7-plus runs scored in the first two games of a season has not happened since 1919.
