Hector Noesi started for the Yankees and once again pitched well until he neared the 50 pitch mark and then ran into a wall. Phil Hughes was among those who came on in relief. He pitched 1.2 innings and topped out at 93 mph.
Jorge Posada played some nice defense at first, throwing out a pair of runners at home plate.
The Red Sox loss was embarrassing considering the way it went down. Jacoby Ellsbury, one night after being the hero in the Bronx, dropped a ball in center field that allowed Robert Andino to score on an inside the park home run. That play ended up being the difference in the game as Josh Beckett just didn’t have his usual stuff.
