Yankees Lose in Extras to Red Sox

Yankees vs Red Sox Post Game Recap 7/29

The Yankees suffered yet another tough loss to the Red Sox this time coming in extra innings losing the game 3-2, and the series at home as well.

Hiroki Kuroda pitched a very good game for the Yankees in the no decision, as the double play ball was Kuroda's best friend getting four Red Sox to ground into one. Kuroda finished the night going eight innings allowing seven hits, one walk, two earned runs, and had four strikeouts.

David Robertson had a tough time of it in the 10th inning picking up his 4th loss of the season. He allowed two hits, one walk, and the eventual game winning run to score on a Pedro Ciriaco single.

Russell Martin had one of his best games of the season going 2 for 2 with two walks, and two RBIs. Martin was able to his 12th homerun of the season in the 7th inning, and followed it up in the 8th with a RBI single scoring Andruw Jones as Martin Knocked in the only two Yankee runs.

Yankees saw Nick Swisher back in the starting lineup in as the DH after missing a few games, and Swisher was able to go 2 for 4 with two strikeouts.

Ichiro Suzuki was able to keep his hitting streak as a Yankee alive going 1 for 4, and stole his 17th base of the season.

The big bats in the Yankees order in Granderson, Teixeira, and Cano all had rough games going a combined 0-14 with only Granderson making it on base from a walk.

Yankees will look to bounce back from losing the series with the Red Sox on Monday as the Orioles will be in town, as Freddy Garcia (4-4, 5.16) will face Miguel Gonzalez (2-2, 4.28).
