Yankees Finally Win Series Against Boston

The Yankees offense tried as hard as they could to not score runs, but they finally broke through with a three-run 7th that capped a 4-2 comeback victory.

A.J. Burnett was on the mound and actually looked good with his adjusted mechanicsĀ  and despite an 0-for-4 night Jesus Montero contributed by scoring the go-ahead run as the Yankees finally won a series against Boston.

As much as it kills me to watch Alfredo Aceves in a Red Sox uniform, he hasn’t done terrible well against the Yankees this year and was on the hook for the loss last night after he put two runners on to start the 7th. Russell Martin got the big hit, a two-RBI double off of Daniel Bard that gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead. Eric Chavez picked up a pinch hit single for the final run.

Burnett pitched well, not great, but for A.J. it was a promising start. The bullpen closed the door, but not before Curtis Granderson had to bail them out with an amazing catch that probably saved two runs.

Montero made his long awaited debut by going 0-for-4 with a hit by pitch. He looked good running the bases though and he didn’t look overpowered in his at bats. It’s rough facing a pitcher as good as Jon Lester in your major league debut.
