It seems that Jorge Posada was not only Yankee who did not play Saturday night. News fainting Core Four teams ask more out of the lineup after being abandoned at the ninth player in the batting order weak field, but Josh Beckett and the Red Sox Yankees fairing so stressed many problems with a 6-0 beating at the Stadium.
CC Sabathia dominated early, but could not prevent the emergence Red Sox, who scored two runs in the fifth and four in the seventh. The rally has been crowned by a three-run homer by Adrian Gonzalez to pursue Sabathia - Joe Girardi started dirt and ejected by plate umpire Mike Winters, after changing his departure to David Robertson.
Yankees, managed by four of their seven hits and struck nine times against Beckett and his six innings before Matt Albers and Rich Hill in a record final nine outs. Beckett, who lowered his ERA to 1.75, was also launched eight scoreless frames against the Yankees on April 10 in Boston.
Despite opening the season 0-6, the Red Sox again moved within one game of .500. At 19-20, they won a game the Yankees from 20 to 17, who have lost four consecutive years for the first time in 2011.
With or without Posada Bombers seem to avoid a sweep of three games at home Sunday evening the series finale, in which Freddy Garcia is scheduled to oppose the ace left-hander Jon Lester.
"To play three games and the smell for two weeks and say," Well, we played well in three games, but we always play all the time, which is the bottom line, "Girardi soon 16:00 - about two hours before Posada asked out of the lineup, GM Brian Cashman hours. "I'm not too far in three games. If this is three games in September of 1915, could be a different story."
However, after the fall of the last two games against Kansas City earlier this week, then opens the series on Friday - and considering Posada and Girardi explosion, shortly before the first pitch - the Yankees certainly Sabathia ordered a bank need to solve their joint malfunction coup.
Sabathia, who won three of his last four starts, Beckett matched zeros through the first four races - including consecutive strikeouts of Gonzalez, Kevin Youkilis and David Ortiz with two runners in scoring position to end an early profit. The hat-trick of K, has started a stretch of 12 consecutive batters retired by Sabathia, who struck six in the first four innings.
The problem was that Beckett has also dominated the Yankees through four images aimlessly. Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson opened the first house with singles, with the hit The Captain's th 2965 in his career. But as Sabathia (3-3) had made the previous half-inning, Beckett has increased dramatically with punch-out by Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano wrapped around a menu error by Alex Rodriguez, who was 0 - for-4 with two strikeouts.
The Sox spent his first two points in the fifth. After Sabathia pitched a four-foot field of Jason Varitek - and Posada, a former recipient of the Stars is now batting ninth for the Red Sox - Jacoby Ellsbury tied a two-run double in the head by Brett Gardner on the left.
Andruw Jones, the last minute to replace Posada hole No.9, pulled one on a single through the shortstop hole in the fifth against Beckett, and Jeter followed with a walk. But Granderson him out Varitek and Beckett, once again fanned Teixeira. This will extend Teixeira is skid against the Red Sox hitless in 30 at-bats - including 19 this season - before he beat a harmless one-out only from the eighth.
