Five Red Sox Takes: Bullpen blows another one in the Bronx

Five Red Sox Takes: Bullpen blows another one in the Bronx

The New York Yankees rallied from a 6-5 deficit in the seventh inning with a 9-6 win over the Boston Red Sox to get Yankee Stadium rocking on a Wednesday night and Brett Gardner was the unlikely catalyst of the comeback win.

Gardner's veteran work ethic and glove work are irreplaceable, and so, too, are his gritty, gutsy battles at the plate, especially when they result in two run triples.

Even as Gardner's batting average dipped under.200, Yankees manager Aaron Boone was optimistic. But Chasen Shreve and Jonathan Holder combined to pitch out of trouble in the seventh, escaping a second-and-third, one-out jam without damage.Video: BOS@NYY: Ramirez tattoos a huge 2-run homer to leftNeil Walker doubled to open the NY eighth against Matt Barnes, advancing on a groundout before a walk to Gleyber Torres prompted Kimbrel's entry. And though he did strike out twice, he also worked an eighth-inning walk. That's what I'm trying to do. "That's the best way I can say it".

Gardner began the night with a.198 average but capped his first three-hit game of the year by lifting Kimbrel's 96 miles per hour fastball soaring over center fielder Mookie Betts' head to give the Yankees a 7-6 lead.

The Yankees opened as -134 favorites (wager $134 to win $100); the total is at nine runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. He couldn't get the job done and the Red Sox lost because two of those runners scored. Amid all that, The New York Post declared that the "Mets have looked like [the] team [the] Yankees were supposed to be". "Guys like Gleyber, [Miguel] Andujar, Walker coming through the past couple of games".

Boston relievers have allowed 20 earned runs in 36 eighth innings this season.

One night after Giancarlo Stanton hit two home runs to power the Yanks to a 3-2 win, it was the Sox who brought the thunder to Yankee Stadium. To be the filmmaker to help tell that story is, for me, as good as it gets.

Mitch Moreland hit a two-run homer and Benintendi added a solo shot for the Red Sox. Holder struck out Christian Vazquez on a 2-2 slider before an intentional walk loaded the bases. Craig Kimbrel is one of baseball's best and most reliable closers, and on Wednesday night he was asked to nail down a five-out save for the Red Sox.

The Yankees drew first blood off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello when Judge singled home Gardner in the bottom of the first. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it is the second-longest winning streak against exclusively first-place teams in Major League history.

"At this point, I don't think any of us are thinking about the 7½-game lead, " Kimbrel said.

"It got my attention. But yeah, got to execute the one to Walker a little bit better". "It's May and it's bedlam". The opening pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. ET and New England Sports Network will be televising the action.

RANGERS 5, TIGERS 4 (10) Nomar Mazara led off the 10th inning with his second home run of the game, giving host Texas a victory over Detroit and its first winning home series this season. Eduardo Nunez drove in the other Boston run with a sacrifice fly. On the mound, C.C. Sabathia (yes, him!) and Luis Severino have been more than dependable - they've been superb, each with ERAs under 2.00.

Bryan Hoch has covered the Yankees for MLB.com since 2007.
