Bartolo Colon, Friday night's starter, and CC Sabathia, Saturday's starter, flew to Boston before Thursday night's game.

"We'll probably get in late tonight. CC's got a day game Saturday," Girardi said. "So we just sent them both."

The team was expected to check into its Boston hotel between 3 and 4 a.m. Friday.
