New York Yankees hold on for a tense win against the Boston Red Sox

The New York Yankees defeated the  Boston Red Sox on Friday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 3-2.  Michael Pineda started for the Yankees and after a rocky start pitched well, the bullpen was good.  Aaron Hicks had a big homerun for the game winning hit. 

Pineda pitched six innings giving up two hits and eight hits.  He walked one and struck out four.  Chasen Shreve pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up a hit, Kirby Yates earned his first win of the season pitching 2/3 of an inning and striking out one and Dellin Betances pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and he struck out one.  Andrew Miller earned his sixth save of the season pitching 1 1/3 innings and giving up three htis and a walk with four strikeouts. 

Rick Porcello pitched seven innings giving up six hits and three runs with two walks and five strikeouts.  Tommy Layne pitched an inning giving up a walk. 

Jacoby Ellsbury drew a walk, Dustin Ackley had a hit and an RBI and Brett Gardner had a hit and drew a walk.  Brian McCann had a hit and an RBI, Starlin Castro had a hit and Hicks had a hit and an RBI.  Didi Gregorius had a hit, Ronald Torreyes drew a walk and McCann and Gardner each hit a double.  Hicks hit a homerun and the Yankees were 2-8 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Ellsbury had two stolen bases and Gardner had a stolen base. 

Mookie Betts drew a walk, Dustin Pedroia had a hit and Xander Bogaerts had two hits.  David Ortiez had a hit and two RBI, Hanley Ramirez had two hits and Travis Shaw had three hits and Brock Holt had a hit.  Chris Young drew a walk, Jackie Bradley Jr. had a hit and Christian Vasquez had a hit.  Jeff Rutledge had a pinch hit, Bogaerts and Vasquez each hit a double.  Ortiz hit a homerun and the Red Sox were 3-12 with runners in scoring position and left 12 men on base.  Bogaerts and Betts each had a stolen base.  Bradley had an outfield assist. 

In the first Ortiz hit a two run homerun giving the Red Sox a 2-0 lead.  In the bottom of the first McCann hit an RBI double to make it a 2-1 game.  In the second Ackley hit an RBI single to tie the game at two.  In the seventh Hicks hit a solo homerun giving the Yankees a 3-2 lead and that would be the final score. 

The two teams will play game two of three on Saturday afternoon.  It was a crazy ending as both the Red Sox manager and Ortiz were tossed over arguing balls and strikes.  The rivalry had some juice in it tonight.  Ellsbury left the game with a strained hip and is day to day and Miller and Betances will not be available tomorrow.
