Red Sox stun Yankees 5-4 in 10 for 4-game sweep

Red Sox stun Yankees 5-4 in 10 for 4-game sweep

However, the Red Sox have now extended their lead to 9.5 games, a seemingly insurmountable margin for the Yankees to overcome. "Tomorrow is always important", NY manager Aaron Boone said. Boone said: "They hope it's a pain-free situation".

You would think that Cashman would have learned his lesson after 2004's epic comeback by the self-described "Idiots" on the Red Sox, who erased a 3-0 Yankee lead to win the ALCS and break the curse of the Bambino in the process on their way to their first World Series championship in 86 years.

The bases were loaded when J.D. Martinez singled to center to score Betts and Leon, and an error by the Yankees' Miguel Andujar on Xander Bogaerts' ensuing hit saw pinch-runner Jackie Bradley Jr. score the tying run. The Red Sox picked up Eovaldi in a trade with Tampa Bay on July 25, with Red Sox pitching prospect Jalen Beeks headed to Tampa.

Two runs scored on Martinez's single. The rookie third baseman bounced the throw and Greg Bird could not handle it at first.

"We're experiencing, obviously, some adversity just with being dinged up a bit, roster-wise", Boone said.

Boone insisted this is "a test", and that his team is united and tough-minded and will persevere and be made the better for it. The AL East is race is all but over and so is the number one seed for the American League. He will square off against the Yankees on Friday.

The Red Sox counter with erratic, 32-year-old lefty David Price, who has been shelled by the Yankees in both of his outings against them in 2018. The Red Sox are no longer the Rivals in 2018.

After basically going silent in the previous two-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Sox hitters woke up in a major way against the Pinstripes with the 15 runs.

Seattle is just 2.5 games behind Oakland for a spot in the one-game playoff, which makes New York's standing as comfortable playoff participants far less sturdy. Betts switched from right field to take over at second base after Ian Kinsler injured his left hamstring while scoring in the first.

Aroldis Chapman's meltdown against the Red Sox on Sunday in which he blew a three-run lead in the ninth could have some calling his role as closer into question.

"I've seen Mookie field ground balls before, and he's pretty darned good, so I actually felt pretty good about it", Porcello said. No second-place team in the majors now trails the first-place club by more than the Yanks do the Red Sox. A fan who brought a broom to the game - apparently to cheer the Red Sox on to a series sweep - used it to retrieve the ball from a light stanchion.

After this weekend, it might be time for the Yankees to adjust their focus for what looks inevitable: a wild-card game, and Boston. If they felt an 0-2, backdoor sinker had intent, well the first pitch of the game went right at the head of the best player in baseball.
