Yankees Rally To Beat Red Sox, Seize AL East Lead

Gardner's triple plus Judge's home run drove in four runs to give the Yankees a 9-6 win over the Boston Red Sox.

As the bedlam died down, as the Stadium stopped shaking, as the fans began processing the latest thunderclap in the Bronx, Aaron Judge marched to the other side of the dugout.

"It's another series", Red Sox manager Alex Cora said before the series opener.

Since holding its 7 1/2 game lead on the Yankees, Boston has split its last 16 games after a 17-2 start, though Mookie Betts continues to be productive.

The Yankees have outscored the opposition 110-45 in the surge.

Last night was also the highest-rated, most-viewed and most-watched game on any New York RSN since the September 25, 2014 Jeter game (and, excluding that Jeter game, last night was the highest-rated, most-viewed and most-watched game on any New York RSN since YES' October 2, 2012 Red Sox game).

"Let's say we get back at 11 p.m. from a game, we'll play until 1 a.m., 1:30 a.m., 2 a.m. depending on what time our game is the next day", explained Price.

Down 6-5 in the bottom of the eighth, the Yankees plated four runs to take the lead, and ultimately, the AL East throne from the Sox.

Andujar grounded out to second base, advancing Walker to third with one out. Gardner, in an 8-for-63 skid, had already doubled twice. "But you don't want to get too far ahead of yourself". If he does, he won't see a sum like it ever again.

"I fell behind all three hitters which obviously isn't ideal in that situation", Barnes said.

All told, Kimbrel relented two runs in just 0.2 innings pitched. Feel like a little kid out there.

The Yankees had their closer Aroldis Chapman pitch the bottom of the ninth and gave up a single and three strikeouts for the win. Ramirez turned on a hanging slider from reliever Chad Green and crushed it deep into the second deck in left field for his fourth homer. And they are dominating at home. As for their rotation, anyone not named Chris Sale or Rick Porcello is having issues with not allowing runs.

It took Tanaka 21 pitches just to navigate a 1-2-3 first inning, and Moreland clubbed a two-run homer in the second. Tanaka allowed four runs.

It was a risk worth taking for the Red Sox, but like the ship's crew, starving while entrapped in the icebergs of the northern waters, the desire for immediate satisfaction has backfired. The unsung hero, though, might be Jonathan Holder.

"That's just who those guys are", Aaron Boone said of his red-hot club.

Now, big trades in baseball normally don't happen until near the all-star break in July, but the NY Mets pulled off a stunner yesterday right before their game against the Cincinnati Reds, and they made the swap with that very same team. Or any other topic and we're going to play your home L voicemail messages back.
