Yankees-Red Sox game rained out

Posted April 28, 2017

The Red Sox got past the flu that swept through their clubhouse and pitching injuries, and now have Pedroia missing two games after the spiking. Wednesday's loss dropped Boston two games behind NY in the loss column and three behind the division leading Baltimore Orioles.

Boston's one run came in the 9th inning off of Aroldis Chapman when they trailed 3-0.

In the third, Judge flipped head over heels into the crowd in pursuit of a foul ball.

Reigning AL Cy Young victor Rick Porcello (1-3) lost his third straight start, giving up three runs - two earned - in 6 2/3 innings. But the Yankees won the first meeting of the season 3-1 before the smallest crowd for a Sox-Yanks game at Fenway since 1997 (32,072), and two of their brightest prospects led the way. The Red Sox (11-8) just finished a 3-3 trip by salvaging the series finale in Baltimore, a three-game set that saw second baseman Dustin Pedroia spiked by Manny Machado and Matt Barnes ejected for throwing behind Machado Sunday.

For context, let's remember what former Miami general manager Dan Jennings once told WEEI.com when asking about the importance of an ace.

Prior to their series, the Yankees had won nine of 10 games after a 1-4 start to the season.

CHICAGO - Avisail Garcia hit a two-run, go-ahead home run and Jose Quintana struck out 10 as the Chicago White Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals with a 5-2 victory on Wednesday.

Severino struck out six and walked two, posting his third straight strong start.

The 33-year-old was originally forced to the sideline after being slid into on Friday by Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, which led to an vast amount of controversy in the following days. It wasn't until the sixth that another run crossed the plate.

The 23-year-old kept the Boston bats off balance all night, scattering three singles across seven scoreless innings. "Once I fell into the stands I didn't really know what to do after that, 'do I throw it from here, do I have to step back on the field?' so it was kind of a different scenario right there, I'm just glad I was able to make the play for us". Greg Bird had a RBI double. Jett Bandy led the team with three hits but Eric Thames, who has belted a majors-best 11 homers, exited the game with a tight left hamstring.
