Shane Greene picked a really bad time to have a really terrible game. After going 2-0 with a 2.93 ERA in August, he had a huge meltdown tonight as the Red Sox hit him early and often in their 9-4 victory over the Yankees.
The third inning went all sorts of bad for the rookie. With one out, Cespedes singled and Napoli walked. Daniel Nava then planted his third homer of the year to make it 5-0. Two batters later, Xander Bogaerts hit his ninth homer of the year.
The Yankees got a rally going in the bottom of the fifth. Carlos Beltran singled. Brian McCann beat the shits with a little infield single. Martin Prado then hit one off the wall that Beltran got a bad read on and only went to third on. Prado didn’t see it and was tagged out at second with McCann on the base.
Chase Headley walked and so did Francisco Cervelli to bring in a run. Two batters later, Derek Jeter then beat out an infield grounder and after a review was ruled safe. Brett Gardner was then called out on strikes and thrown out of the game after slamming his helmet down in frustration.
Chaz Roe made his Yankee debut in the ninth and didn’t exactly impress. He gave up a leadoff triple to Cespedes and a sac fly to Napoli. Nava walked, went to second on a passed ball and scored on Bogaerts RBI single.
McCann would add his 16th homer of the year in the ninth of Koji Uehara.
