As Bullpen Stumbles, Yankees Fall to Five Games Back of Red Sox

As Bullpen Stumbles, Yankees Fall to Five Games Back of Red Sox

"And right now, they're another team we're trying to go out and beat".

Boston picked up right where it left off after last weekend's dramatic series in NY with another come-from-behind thriller on Friday night against the Yankees. He allowed one run on four hits with 12 strikeouts and two walks over seven innings in his last start, a 3-2 win at the Yankees where he got a no-decision. The flamethrower only allowed two runs once in an outing last season. Addison Reed earned the win in relief and Craig Kimbrel picked up his 29th save. Andrew Benintendi's RBI single made it 6-5 and, after a walk to Hanley Ramirez, pinch hitter Mitch Moreland's two-run single on a 0-and-2 changeup made it 7-6.

But when the Yankees are nine outs from a victory and unable to protect a 6-3 lead, when they let another game come off the schedule with only six head-to-head matchups remaining between the teams, when they're staring down the barrel of facing the AL Cy Young favorite who has dominated them throughout his career, it makes it easier for the Red Sox to relax - or at least take a breath.

As a sponsor of the program, the Ford Motor Company Fund's, Jay Darling of Darling's Ford in Bangor was on the field to help present the students with their awards at Fenway Park prior to a recent Red Sox home game against the Chicago White Sox.

Reed struck out Judge on a cutter and induced a weak pop-up off the bat of Gary Sanchez, who had homered off Joe Kelly to start the inning, to end the seventh.

"He just got the best of me that time", Judge said.

Pomeranz entered as one of baseball's hottest pitchers and was working on his fourth scoreless inning when he threw a curveball wide to the backstop and it became clear something wasn't right. After one warm-up toss, Farrell called for Brandon Workman to replace the starter. "It happens sometimes. I should be fine in a couple of days, or tomorrow even". Rafael Devers hit a two run home run while going 2 for 4 at the dish. The Yankees were 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left 14 on base.

"Once we turned into the month of August, the offense has turned it on", Farrell said. "You look at the bottom third of the lineup and it's deep and it's been productive".
