Yankees Lose to Red Sox

Yankees fall to Red Sox in 9th inning
In a game that lasted nearly four hours, the Yankees lost to the Red Sox 9-8 in the ninth inning last night. The loss leaves the Yankees with a record of 73-89, while the Red Sox improve to 93-69.
The game was tied at eight heading into the bottom of the ninth inning, when Red Sox pinch hitter Brock Holt hit a walk-off RBI single off Yankees reliever Dellin Betances. Betances (6-8) took the loss in relief, while Craig Kimbrel picked up his 35th save for the Red Sox.
The Yankees got off to a good start, scoring two runs in the first inning on RBI singles by Giancarlo Stanton and Luke Voit. The Red Sox quickly answered with three runs in the bottom of the first, however, on an RBI single by J.D. Martinez and a two-run homer by Xander Bogaerts.
The Yankees took the lead again with three runs in the third inning, thanks to RBI hits by Miguel Andujar and Aaron Hicks, but once again the Red Sox battled back, this time tying the game at five with two runs in the bottom of the third inning on an RBI double by Eduardo Nunez and a sacrifice fly by Jackie Bradley Jr.
The game remained tied until extra innings, when both teams scored three runs apiece in the eighth inning. For the Yankees, Didi Gregorius hit a solo home run, Stanton drove in another run with an RBI triple, and Brett Gardner scored on a wild pitch. The Red Sox got their three runs on an RBI single by Martinez, a sacrifice fly by Bradley Jr., and an error by Voit that allowed Nunez to score from second base.
It was a tough loss for the Yankees, who have now dropped six out of their last seven games against AL East opponents. They will look to get back on track tomorrow night when they begin a three-game series against division rivals Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium.
Blown save by Aroldis Chapman
The New York Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox last night after Aroldis Chapman blew the save in the ninth inning. Chapman allowed a game-tying home run to Xander Bogaerts, and the Sox went on to win in the 10th inning. This was a tough loss for the Yankees, who have now blown four saves in their last nine games.
Yankees offense struggles
The Yankees offense was held to just two runs on four hits by the Red Sox pitching staff last night, losing the game 2-1. New York’s only runs came courtesy of a solo home run by Giancarlo Stanton in the top of the fourth inning, and they were unable to mount a comeback after Boston scored single runs in the bottom of the fifth and sixth innings. This is the second consecutive loss for the Yankees, who now sit at 4-2 on the young season.
Losing Streak Continues
The Yankees lost again last night, extending their losing streak to four games. It was a close game, with the Yankees trailing by only one run in the ninth inning. However, they were unable to score and ultimately lost the game. This is the Yankees’ longest losing streak of the season so far.
Yankees have now lost 5 of their last 6 games
The New York Yankees have now lost 5 of their last 6 games against the Boston Red Sox, after last night’s 9-6 defeat. This is their longest losing streak against the Red Sox since 2011, when they also lost 5 out of 6 games.
The Yankees had a chance to take the lead in the 9th inning, when they loaded the bases with only one out. However, they were unable to score any runs and ended up losing the game.
This loss continues a trend of poor performance by the Yankees against theRed Sox. In their last 10 games against each other, the Yankees have only won 3 times. This is in contrast to their overall record this season, which is 60-31.
The Yankees will be hoping to turn things around when they face off against the Red Sox again tonight.
Struggling to score runs
Last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays was yet another example of the New York Yankees’ recent struggles. Despite out-hitting the Rays 9 to 5, the Yankees were only able to score 2 runs, both of which came in the first inning. From there, the Rays pitchers shut down the Yankee offense, and the Rays went on to win the game 3-2.
This loss extends the Yankees’ losing streak to 6 games, and drops their record to 9-15 on the season. In contrast, the Rays have now won 8 of their last 10 games and improve to 16-8 on the year.
The Yankees will look to turn things around tonight as they begin a 3-game series against the Baltimore Orioles. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM ET.
Pitching has been inconsistent
The Yankees have now lost 8 out of their last 10 games and their pitching has been a big reason why. In their last 5 games, the Yankees have given up an average of 7 runs per game. This is after they had a stretch where they only gave up an average of 2.5 runs per game. The Yankees need to figure out what is wrong with their pitching, and quickly, if they want to turn things around and make a push for the playoffs.
The Yankees played the Red Sox last night and they won! This was a huge victory and has put them back in the running for the playoffs. So, what’s next for the Yankees? They have a few options.
Yankees travel to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays
The New York Yankees will travel to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays in a three-game series. The Yankees are coming off a win against the Baltimore Orioles, while the Blue Jays are coming off a loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
Will the Yankees be able to turn things around?
After a disappointing loss last night, the Yankees will look to turn things around against the division-rival Red Sox. After a hot start to the season, the Yankees have cooled off as of late, losing 7 of their last 10 games. While they still maintain a comfortable lead in the AL East, they will need to start playing better if they want to make a deep run in the playoffs.
The Red Sox, on the other hand, have been playing much better as of late. They have won 8 of their last 10 games and are starting to close the gap on the Yankees. If they can continue to play well, they could find themselves in a good position come October.
It should be a good game tonight, and it will be interesting to see how the two teams stack up against each other.
Can the Yankees get back to their winning ways?
It was a tough loss for the Yankees last night, but they’ll have to put it behind them and focus on the task at hand. Can they get back to their winning ways?
The Yankees have been one of the best teams in baseball this season, but they’ve struggled lately. They’ll need to turn things around quickly if they want to stay in contention for the playoffs.
There are a lot of games left to be played, and anything can happen. But if the Yankees want to make a run at the World Series, they’ll need to start winning again soon.
