Yankees Crush Red Sox 13-3 On John Farrell’s Birthday, Womp Womp
The Yankees continued their dominance of the AL East on Monday night at Yankee Stadium as they slaughtered their rival Red Sox with a final score of 13-3. No surprise there, as it was the Yankee's 11th win in their last 15 games played.
The Sox actually kept it close game through the top of the 7th inning when a long Pablo Sandoval home run put them within one run of the home team at 4-3. After Dellin Betances relieved Masahiro Tanaka and helped the Yankees escape the top of the inning without anymore runs from the Sox, their power hitters took over in a big way.
With one out, a Xander Bogaerts error put Jacoby Ellsbury on base and a Jean Machi walk of Chris Young put men on first and second. Ellsbury scored on an Alex Rodriguez single, leaving two men on base for the ensuing monster three-run homer by Brian McCann to put the Yankees up 8-3.
And they still weren't done.
Carlos Beltran promptly doubled to right center and was sent home on the next at bat by a Chase Headley double of his own. One batter later Brendan Ryan was walked, leaving two men on base when Ellsbury singled to left field. Beltran scored to make the score 10-3.
Alexi Ogando then came in as the Red Sox third pitcher of the 7th inning to relieve Craig Breslow, only to immediately give up another three-run homer; this time to Chris Young who would seal the deal at 13-3.
To top it off, all of this happened on Red Sox manager John Farrell's 53rd birthday! It hasn't been a great season for celebrating anything in Boston, but that kind of whooping had to certainly rain on what little parade Farrell may have been planning.
I guess if he wants to have a good birthday he should start figuring out how to get a halfway decent pitching staff together by the beginning of August. #BirthdayBurn
