In Game 1 the Yankees had control of the board. In Game 2, the Red Sox had complete control of the board. In the end, the Yankees won game 1, 6-1 and the Red Sox won game 2, 9-4.
GAME 1: On Friday night’s game, the Yankees scored all 10 of their runs without hitting a HR. In the afternoon game of the Day-Night DH, all of their runs happened via the HR ball. In the first game Andruw Jones hit 2 HR’s, Jayson Nix hit 1 homer (his actually left the stadium) and Nick Swisher hit a 3 run homer which summed up the Yankees 6 runs. Freddy Garcia was also very effective for the Yankees as he had pitched into the 7th inning with only giving up 1 run. It seems that ever since the Yankees banished Garcia into the bullpen, he became a completely different pitcher. Derek Jeter also had a 3 hit day and we saw Robinson Cano extend his hitting streak to 13 games. We also saw his RBI streak disappear snapping his RBI streak to 9 games.
GAME 2: The Yankees once again got off to a fast start in the 2nd game when Mark Teixeira hit a 3 run homer which plated Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson. Andruw Jones hit a HR in the 7th which gives him 3 HR’s throughout the entire day. Phil Hughes (who was scheduled to show up at 5pm at Fenway Park) gave up 3 earned runs (5 in total to the Red Sox) after a wild 6th inning kicked him out of the game in favor of Boone Logan. Joe Girardi decided to lift Boone Logan in favor of Cory Wade and let’s just say that he was horrible (again). Wade gave up 4 earned runs on 3 hits which is why he’s going back to Scranton.
Tomorrow the Yankees send out Ivan Nova to the hill in hopes to get the series win. Jon Lester goes for the Red Sox.
