The Yankees and Red Sox will open Major League Baseball's first series in Britain with a night game and conclude the next day in the afternoon.

MLB said Friday that the June 9 game at London's Olympic Stadium will start at 6:10 p.m. local time (1:10 p.m. EDT) and be broadcast in the United States by Fox as part of its Saturday "Game of the Week" coverage.

The following day's game is set for 3:10 p.m. (10:10 a.m. EDT) and will be a "Sunday Morning Baseball" special event for ESPN, which also will have its regular Sunday night game at 7:10 p.m.

Boston will be the home team in both games, played at the home of  Premier League club West Ham. The defending World Series champion Red Sox are owned by the same parent company as Premier League power Liverpool.
