Craig Kimbrel blows save as Red Sox fall to first-place Yankees

MLB Betting: Mookie and the Red Sox can bring down Yankee Stadium

While that's sure to come back to the forefront in the wake of Wednesday's blown save (just Kimbrel's sixth blown save in 83 opportunities with the Red Sox), the reality is that that situation was not uniquely an eighth-inning scenario, per se. "Gardy's triple, that home run, I couldn't hear anything. You're just running off adrenaline there". It's pretty cool."Video: BOS@NYY: Judge crushes a 453-foot homer vs".

The Yankees are 40-13 in their last 53 home games, are 49-22 in their last 71 games overall, and are 19-7 in their last 26 games coming off a win. And they are dominating at home. NY has covered the spread five times in its last seven games and the under has hit in four of those seven. The Yanks have outscored opponents, 78-33, during the current streak.

Brett Gardner capped a slump-busting performance with a go-ahead, two-run triple off Craig Kimbrel in the eighth inning, Aaron Judge followed with a home run and the New York Yankees rallied to beat the Boston Red Sox 9-6 Wednesday night for their 17th victory in 18 games. Chapman struck out Mitch Moreland to end it.

Even as Gardner's batting average dipped under.200, Boone was optimistic.

Cubs 13, Marlins 4: Kris Bryant hit his 100th career homer, Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell connected in an eight-run third inning, and host Chicago routed Miami. That's what I'm trying to do. I've felt good physically. The point here is that you can't judge a baseball team on only a handful of game, and it's risky and misleading to try, whether it's a random 20-day sample in August or the first 20 days of the season. But with the powerhouse Yankees positioned to battle tooth-and-nail against the defending AL East-champion Red Sox this year, there really isn't tremendous room for error - especially when a win is within the Red Sox' grasps the way it was on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. This could have been one that slipped away for the Yankees, as soon as Hanley Ramirez put the Sox ahead at 6-5 with a rocket two-run homer off Chad Green in the seventh. He had three hits, three RBIs and a diving catch in right field as NY won its eighth straight overall and 11th in a row at home.

The Boston Red Sox will square off against their divisional rival New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

The Red Sox led 6-5 heading into the bottom of the eighth when the Yankees put two on with one out, and that prompted Red Sox manager Alex Cora to bring in Kimbrel to try and get a five-out save, a plan that backfired nearly immediately when the first batter Kimbrel faced tripled to drive in two runs and give the Yankees the lead.

Boston relievers have allowed 20 earned runs in 36 eighth innings this season.

We go through this every April with some teams getting off to great starts and other teams getting off to poor starts and fans at home left to overreact to each win and loss.

Moreland hit a two-run shot in the second inning, and made a nifty diving play at first base.

Neither starting pitcher - Rick Porcello for the Red Sox nor Masahiro Tanaka for the Yankees - lasted very long or found much success on the night.

The Reds won 10 such games from June 21-July 1, 1999.YOU GOTTA SEE THISTorres and Gregorius teamed to turn a stellar double play in the Boston fourth, prompting Tanaka to applaud into his glove. The Red Sox ended up getting that matchup, but they didn't get the result.

"It got my attention".
