Nothing hurts more than losing to the Red Sox– any fan will concur with that statement. It just hurts to lose to Boston particularly at home and tonight the Yankees just blew it. The Bombers had to play catch up all night until they ran out of innings. The pitching was strong on both side- Colon threw a great game but the Yankees just could not close the door on their nemesis.
Yes, Russell had muscle and tied the game at two but Yukolis hurt us with a 3 run homerun to put the Sox up for good. The Yankees tried to battle back, but fell short 5-4. CC Sabathia takes the mound tomorrow night at 7:05 against ace Josh Beckett. Let’s see if CC can break the three game losing streak for the Pinstripes.
