Yankees vs Red Sox Post Game Recap 7/27
The New York Yankees fresh off a tough west coast trip were able to pick up a 10-3 win over the rival Boston Red Sox to start their home stand on a positive note, and shockingly the game was finished in under three hours a rare happening in a Yankees Red Sox game.
Phil Hughes was able to get his 10th win of the season making him the 4th Yankee starter to have double digit wins. Hughes had a very good start going seven innings allowing three runs, five hits, one walk, and had five strikeouts. The only concern about Phil's start would be the three homeruns he allowed, but they however were all solo shots.
Curtis Granderson was able to have a monster game on Friday night going 3 for 5 with two runs scored, four RBIs, and hit his 28th homerun of the season a grand slam in the 8th inning putting the dagger into the Red Sox.
Yankees left fielder Raul Ibanez also like Granderson had a big game against the Red Sox going 1 for 2 with a two-run homerun in the 3rd inning for his 13th of the season, and added two walks as well.
Russell Martin might finally have something going, as he went 1 for 3 hitting his 11th homerun of the season in the 4th inning, and also scored another run after drawing a walk.
MVP candidate Robinson Cano kept on doing more of the same going 2 for 5, and saw his batting average hit the .320 mark.
Ichiro Suzuki received a warm welcome in his first game at his new home in the Bronx, and went 1 for 4 with two runs scored.
Yankees will be looking for another win over the Red Sox on Saturday as C.C Sabathia (10-3, 3.30) will be facing the struggling Jon Lester (5-8, 5.46).
