The Yankees had some new pieces coming into the series against the Red Sox, but the new pieces couldn’t help Chris Capuano as the Yankees fell to the Red Sox 4-3 at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Yankees were able to cut the deficit in half in the fourth inning on a Carlos Beltran home run and they later cut the deficit again in the sixth on an RBI single by Beltran, scoring Jacoby Ellsbury. Derek Jeter scored the final run in the 8th inning on a solo-shot into the seats above the Green Monster.
Chris Capuano pitched 6.1 innings, giving up four runs on eight hits and striking out five. Shawn Kelley gave up an inherited run (charged to Capuano), Matt Thornton threw one pitch to record two outs in the seventh inning and Adam Warren pitched a scoreless eighth.
