On April 14th this season, Randy Johnson pitched at Fenway Park. He went 7, but he allowed 5 runs. Edgar Renteria and Jason Varitek did a lot of damage to him in that game.
On July 16th of this season, Johnson again pitched at Fenway – going 6.3 IP and allowing 4 runs. He got the win in the game – but, allowed HRs to Manny Ramirez and Mark Bellhorn.
Prior to this, it’s been a long time since Johnson pitched in Fenway – it’s at least four years, probably six years.
On average, against Boston this year, as a whole, Johnson (in 5 starts) has averaged pitching into the 7th inning and allowing, on average, 2.6 runs to score.
The Yankees need Johnson to do this tomorrow – go into seven, allow less than three – if they’re going to have any chance at all.
