Yankees dealt crushing loss by Red Sox after terrible call

Posted on

The Yankees are quickly going from bad to worse.

Hoping a seven-game homestand against division rivals would help them move up the AL East standings, the Yankees instead got run over, with four straight losses to close it out.

The last one came with some drama, as the Yankees blew a lead — and a chance to win it in the bottom of the ninth and fell 6-5 in 10 innings.

The Red Sox then scored twice in the 10th on a two-out single by Xander Bogaerts off Luis Cessa and the Yankees couldn’t come back in the bottom of the inning.

With Rougned Odor at second, Clint Frazier got hit by a pitch, but Miguel Andujar grounded into a double play turned well by Boston right-hander Phillips Valdez.

Tyler Wade, in the game for defense, came to the plate and hit a slow roller for a single to score Odor. He got to second on a throwing error by Marwin Gonzalez.

But DJ LeMahieu grounded to second to end it.

In the ninth, the Yankees came up with a run, but could have won it.

Gleyber Torres tied the game with a one-out double that scored Aaron Judge from first. With runners on the corners, pinch-hitter Rougned Odor was called out on strikes on a brutal call from home plate umpire Gabe Morales on a full count to end the inning.

Third base coach Phil Nevin, still not allowed on the field as he is treated for the effects of his battle with COVID, was ejected for arguing the call from the dugout.
