Brian McCann has been a bit of a talking point around the Yankees this season. The catcher has had the power numbers that we expected, however, his batting average has left something to be desired. McCann went 4-4 tonight and Hiroki Kuroda went seven strong innings, as the Yankees picked up a much needed 5-1 win over the Red Sox.
The Yankees would get two more in the seventh off reliever Alex Wilson. With one out, Ellsbury tripled and Derek Jeter would walk. Brett Gardner‘s single brought home another run. After a force out and a walk McCann would drive in his third run of the night with a single, but Carlos Beltran would get thrown out at the plate to end the frame.
