Then all hell broke loose.
Boston would send 12 men to the plate and score seven in the inning as Sabathia imploded. I'm not going to go into the details of the massacre, nor do I believe you want me to.
Sabathia's meltdown couldn't have come at a worse time. This was a game the Yankees needed (even if it is June), and to have your ace shit the bed like that is certainly a demoralizing way to go down. It also solidifies that fact that this Red Sox team is just a much better baseball team right now.
There would be no such meltdown for Josh Beckett. The Yanks wouldn't score another run off him after the first as he picked up his 3rd win against the Yanks this season.
This latest disaster makes it six losses in a row AT HOME to Boston and eight in nine tries overall. Boston now holds a two-game lead in the division.... Pathetic.
PLAYER OF THE GAME: David Ortiz
HONORABLE MENTION: Adrian Gonzalez
GOAT OF THE GAME: CC Sabathia
