NOT WHAT YANKEE FANS NEEDED
Just to put this in perspective. We lost to the Red Sox, but the Blue Jays lost too. That being said, every game the Yankees play needs to be a win right now. The Blue Jays are hot as hell. They made the right moves at the trade deadline, while the Yankees made none. We can't just expect the competition to lay down. Toronto wants it this year. We should too.
We played the last place Red Sox last night and there was really no reason to lose this game. We left 14 men on base. FOURTEEN. We were 3 for 14 with runners in scoring position. You read that right. It's kind of pathetic. The Red Sox are not that good, but they played like champions last night. The Yankees never got that big hit to break it wide open.
Ivan Nova started for the Yankees. He went 6 innings giving up 7 hits and 3 runs. Adam Warren gave up another run, but nothing the Yankees couldn't fight back from.
The Yankee run scoring went like this:
In the first, Carlos Beltran sacrificed home Jacoby Ellsbury. In the 4th, Didi Gregorius singled knocking in 1.
Then, in the 9th, with the bases loaded, Chase Headley walked, and another run scored. But as you can see... never the big hit. Never the big moment. Bottom line, we got lucky last night, we don't lose ground... the Blue Jays lost.
Final: Red Sox 4 - Yankees 3
