The Yankees started their series against the Red Sox right before the All-Star break and they wanted to get off on the right foot. With help from the Red Sox defense, the Yankees were able to take the first game of the three game set with a 5-1 win at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Yankees scored in the first inning on an Alex Rodriguez solo-shot. In the top of the fourth, Jacoby Ellsbury drove home a run after reaching first on an error by Brock Holt, Brett Gardner singled home a run and Alex Rodriguez walked with the bases loaded. The Yankees added an insurance run by Ellsbury in the eighth on an RBI single.

Michael Pineda gave up a run on seven hits with six strikeouts in 6.2 innings of work. Justin Wilson retired a batter, Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless eighth and Andrew Miller pitched a scoreless ninth.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees will take on the Red Sox during the middle game of a three game set. Ivan Nova will start for the Yankees and Eduardo Rodriguez will start for the Red Sox. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on FOX.

    Yah… I will witness Rob Refsnyder on tv tonight. whoo!

    Just for two games? I surely hope Girardi lied. Maybe Figuerora will be dfaed since he is a left handed hitter like Drew who likely remains on the roster, thanked to his power.

      Girardi sounded as if Refsnyder was going to stay beyond the All-Star break, but didn't want to promise anything. It'd be odd to bring one of the Yankees top prospects up for only two games.

      • tom says:

        Of course he will stay beyond the all star break because Yankees have no options to bring a positional player up next week.

        I speak of Refsnyder being penciled in as a starter for those 1st half end games. After that, it is up in the air depending on which starter will be set against Yankees next week. I am hope he starts every game unconditionally. However, you know how Girardi is when it comes to mix and match approach.

    The Yanks also made 2 errors. They weren't timely ones but rest assured they can't continue to play such poor defense.
