Last Saturday, Fox aired an AL East showdown between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

On Tuesday, the network revealed its ratings for that telecast.

The Yankees-Red Sox game became the most-watched regular-season baseball telecast on any network since Fox's MLB at Field of Dreams game last August.

Saturday's telecast garnered a total of 26.36 million viewers.

That's 25 percent more than last season's Fox average.

For Fox Sports' streaming services, Yankees-Red Sox games averaged 16,784 viewers.

The Red Sox eventually won the game in walk-off fashion, beating the Yankees by a final score of 6–5.

The Yankees and the Red Sox split this past weekend's four-game series.

While that's not a great result for the Bronx Bombers, especially when you consider their current pace, they still have a 14.5-game lead over their division rival.

Boston and New York will meet again this Friday.

The series will take place at Yankee Stadium.
