Red Sox Thrash Yankees in a Humiliating Home Defeat
Severino allowed seven hits, walked two, along with of the nine outs he recorded three were balls belted to the warning track from the deepest reaches of the park.
“the item was a mess,” Severino said of his performance. He added: “Maybe I was trying to do too much.”
from the opposite dugout, Cora shook up his lineup to great effect. He benched second baseman Ian Kinsler, third baseman Eduardo Nunez along with catcher Sandy Leon for Holt, Rafael Devers along with Christian Vazquez, hoping to jolt the offense.
the item could not have worked better. Devers ripped one particular to right to lead off the second, stole second base, advanced to third on a groundout along with put the Red Sox ahead 1-0 when Vazquez singled off the glove of Severino. Holt began along with ended the fourth inning outburst, lining one particular to right to start the inning along with hitting a two-run triple to right to cap the item. Vazquez also singled along with scored from the inning.
Holt, Devers along with Vazquez combined for eight hits, seven runs along with eight R.B.I.
right now, the item will be Boone’s turn to adjust.
Neil Walker, who can be counted on for quality at-bats, could find his way into the lineup at third base for Miguel Andujar, which would certainly also give Sabathia — who yields more ground balls than any Yankees pitcher — a more reliable defender.
Certain to be back from the lineup will be center fielder Aaron Hicks, who left the series opener which has a tight right hamstring, along with has not played since, though Boone pronounced him much increased coming from Saturday. “the item was a much harder decision today,” said Boone, who ultimately did not want to risk losing Hicks — who has had a history of muscle pulls — for a lengthy period.
although if the Yankees play anything like they did on Monday night, Hicks — along with the rest of the Yankees — will have all the winter to get better.
