New York Yankees are swept in Boston

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night.  The game took place at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts and the final score was 8-7.  Nathan Eovaldi started for the Yankees and wasn't very good, Dellin Betances gave up the tiebreaking homerun.  Alex Rodriguez led the offense with a couple of hits and four RBI. 

Eovaldi pitched five innings giving up ten hits and six runs.  He walked three and struck out three.  Ivan Nova pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up two hits and a run and he took his first loss of the season.  Betances pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a run and Andrew Miller pitched an inning giving up a hit and he struck out one. 

David Price pitched seven innings giving up eight hits and six runs with a walk and three strikeouts.  He won his fourth game of the season.  Koji Uehara pitched an inning giving up a hit and a run with a walk and two strikeouts and Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect inning with a couple of strikeouts. 

Jacoby Ellsbury had two hits and an RBI, Brett Gardner drew a walk and Rodriguez had two hits and four RBI.  Mark Teixeira had a hit and an RBI, Starlin Castro had two hits and Chase Headley had a hit.  Brian McCann drew a pinch hit walk, Ronald Torreyes had a hit and Ellsbury, Rodriguez and Castro each hit a double.  Rodriguez hit a homerun and the Yankees were 4-8 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Eovaldi and Hicks each committed an error.  Ellsbury had an outfield assist. 

Mookie Betts had a hit, Dustin Pedroia had three hits and Xander Bogaerts had three hits and an RBI.  David Ortiz had a hit and drew a walk, Hanley Ramirez had a hit and two RBI and Travis Shaw had two hits and two RBI.  Brock Holt had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk, Christian Vasquez had a hit and two RBI and Jackie Bradley Jr. had a hit and drew a walk.  Bogaerts hit a double and Shaw and Vasquez each hit a homerun.  The Red Sox were 2-10 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.  Bradley had a stolen base. 

In the first Bogaerts hit into a force out and a run scored to make it 1-0 Red Sox.  IN the third Ellsbury hit an RBI double to tie the game at one and Rodriguez hit a two run homerun to give the Yankees a 3-1 lead.  In the bottom of the third Ramirez hit a two run single to tie the game at three.  The Yankees challenged a timing play but the call was upheld when a run scored on a Holt RBI single and Ramirez got thrown out at third to end the inning.  In the fifth Rodriguez hit a two run double to give the Yankees back the lead at 5-4 and Teixeira hit an RBI single making it 6-4 Yankees.  Shaw hit a two run homerun in the fifth to tie the game at six.  In the seventh Vasquez hit a two run homerun giving the Red Sox a 8-6 lead.  The Yankees scored another run in the eighth on a wild pitch and the final score would be 8-7. 

The Yankees have lost five games in a row and at 8-15 are at their worst start since 1991.  They will be off on Monday before opening a three game set in Baltimore to finish their long road trip.
