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.
— 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.
