The Rivalry

The Yankees and the Sox have been rivals since the early 1900s when the Yankees first started winning championships. The Sox have always been the underdogs, but they finally won the World Series in 2004. The Yankees have won 27 championships, while the Sox have only won 9.

The Rivalry is one of the most historic in baseball

The Yankees and the Sox have been involves in some of the most heated battles in baseball history. The “Curse of the Bambino” was put to rest in 2004 when the Sox finally won a World Series, but the rivalry is still going strong.

The two teams have met 2,213 times since they first played each other in 1903, with the Yankees winning 1,271 of those games. That includes a stretch from 1998 to 2012 when the Yankees won 14 out of 19 meetings between the two teams.

The most recent game between the two rivals was on September 10th, 2019, when the Yankees came from behind to beat the Sox 3-2.

The two teams have met in the playoffs numerous times

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox rivalry is one of the oldest and most prolific in American baseball. The two teams have met in the playoffs numerous times, with the Yankees winning on most occasions.

The rivalry can be traced back to the early years of baseball, when the Boston Red Sox were one of the dominant teams in the sport. The Yankees, on the other hand, were a struggling franchise that had yet to find its footing.

In 1918, the Yankees finally broke through and won their first championship. The following year, they added another title to their collection. TheRed Sox, meanwhile, went into a period of decline and would not win another championship for nearly a century.

The rivalry intensified in the late 1990s and early 2000s as the two teams began to dominate baseball. The Yankees won three straight World Series titles from 1998 to 2000, while the Red Sox finally broke their curse in 2004.

Since then, both teams have continued to be among the best in baseball. In recent years, however, it has been the Yankees who have had the upper hand in head-to-head match-ups.

The Game

It was the bottom of the ninth inning, and the score was tied. The Yankees were up to bat, and their best hitter, Derek Jeter, was coming to the plate. The Sox had their best pitcher, closer Mariano Rivera, on the mound.

The Yankees and the Sox met in the American League Championship Series in 1978

The Yankees and the Sox met in the American League Championship Series in 1978, with New York winning in a close, five-game series. The two teams met again in the AL East race in 1978, with the Yankees coming from behind to tie the Red Sox at the end of the regular season. Boston then won a one-game playoff to claim the division title.

The Yankees won the series in a dramatic game five

The Yankees closed out the series in a dramatic game five, with Bucky Dent hitting a three-run homer in the seventh inning to seal the victory. This was a huge moment for the Yankees, who had been struggling against the Sox all series long. The home run was a turning point in the game, and it ultimately helped the Yankees win the series.

The Aftermath

The Yankee victory is complete, and now the Sox must lick their wounds and face the prospect of an entire winter spent watching their rivals celebrate. The pain will be especially acute for those who were on the field for the final out, most notably lefthander Tony Cingrani, who surrendered the three-run homer to third baseman Gio Urshela that put the game out of reach.

The Yankees went on to win the World Series

The 1978 World Series matched the two-time defending champions New York Yankees against the Los Angeles Dodgers in a rematch of the 1977 Series, with the Yankees winning in six games to take their second consecutive title and their 21st overall. Winning his second Series ring and first as a starter was New York’s MickeyRivers, who was dubbed “the careless Yankee”. Losing for the second time in three years, and for the fourth time in five years, was Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda.

The Sox haven’t won a World Series since 1918

It’s been almost a century since the Sox have won a World Series. In 1918, they beat the Cubs in the World Series. Since then, they’ve been to the playoffs several times, but they haven’t been able to win it all. The Sox last made it to the World Series in 1986, but they lost to the Mets. In 2004, they came close again, but they lost to the Yankees in the American League Championship Series.
