Yankees: Aroldis Chapman’s worst blown saves ever
2 of 6
5. July 14, 2017 at Boston Red Sox
Another hilarious defeat swiped directly out of the jaws of victory, and one that happened similarly in a snap like Thursday’s game.
The Yankees, mired in an awful stretch and needing a win in Boston (where have we heard this before?), took a 4-3 lead in the fifth inning on a Gary Sanchez home run and held it all the way until … Chapman took the mound for the ninth.
Mookie Betts single, Dustin Pedroia single, double steal, Xander Bogaerts reaches on a game-tying error, intentional walk, Andrew Benintendi walk-off walk. Not a single out recorded. Bye.
It simply doesn’t get more incompetent than that at Fenway … until you reach 2018, that is.
