The Yankees played the “comeback kid” three times during the second-longest game in Yankees history, but in the end they were unable to come away with the victory, falling to the Red Sox 6-5 in 19 innings at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees scored two runs in the sixth inning on a Alex Rodriguez RBI single and a Brian McCann SAC Fly. Chase Headley tied the game in the ninth inning on a solo-shot which sent the game into extras. In the bottom of the 16th inning, (and on his 35th birthday) Mark Teixeira hit a game-tying home run which sent the Yankees to the 17th inning. Finally, in the bottom of the 18th inning, Carlos Beltran hit a RBI double, scoring John Ryan Murphy.
Once upon a April, Nathan Eovaldi started the game for the Yankees, going 5.1 innings and giving up three runs on eight hits. Chris Martin retired two batters, Justin Wilson pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, Dellin Betances pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, Andrew Miller pitched a scoreless inning, David Carpenter pitched a scoreless inning, Chasen Shreve gave up no runs on 3.1 innings of work and Esmil Rogers gave up three runs on 4.2 innings of work.
