Frustrations boil over in 9-4 loss to Red Sox

Brett+Gardner+Boston+Red+Sox+v+New+York+Yankees+FZQhBQ31qQdl

Tensions ran high during this Yankees/Red Sox game. Shane Greene didn’t make it through three innings. Brett Gardner didn’t make it through five. In the end, the Yankees succumbed to the Red Sox in a frustrating 9-4 loss at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

The Yankees got on the board in the third inning on a Martin Prado home run, in the fifth Francisco Cervelli walked home a run, Derek Jeter had an infield single and in the ninth inning, Brian McCann hit a solo shot.

Shane Greene had by far his worse start as a Yankee, going 2.2 innings while giving up six runs on six hits and striking out three. Esmil Rogers gave up a run in his 1.2 inning of work, Rich Hill retired his two batters, Adam Warren pitched two perfect innings, David Huff pitched a scoreless inning and Chaz Roe gave up two runs in his inning of work.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees will come back tomorrow night and will try to take the second game of this three game set. Hiroki Kuroda will start for the Yankees while the Red Sox have yet to announce a starter. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    Point off question.. If Zoilo Almonte cleared the waiver after today and returned to Yankees organization, would he be qualified for the postseason roster?

    I get to ask that because Rich Hill just returned to Yankees as a non 40 man roster on August 31 and Almonte was out of the organization on Sept 1st. Very curious.
