    O.K., yes, in this game, we saw “Pitcher Piñata Ponson” do what he does best on a baseball field – allow base-hits.

    Still, the Yankees had a chance to make it a game…top of the fifth inning…down by five…bases loaded, no outs…and their meaty part of their line-up due up: A-Rod, Nady and Cano. But, none of those three could reach base safely or plate any runs via an out…and then this game was basically over.

    So, the Red Sox kicked the Yankees fanny in this one – just as the New York spanked Boston on their rear end in the game before this one. An eye-for-an-eye. Factor in that Friday’s game was sort of a tie…with the Yankees getting a lucky run to win it…and I would say that this series was a push. Neither team showing that it was better than the other. Makes sense…they have split 12 games, so far, this season.

    These two teams will meet again in a month – on August 26th. Should be fun.

      Cano looked like first 1/2 Cano in that AB

      I’d agree with your assessment, Steve – two blowouts and a fluke run deciding the other game. And I think that credit has to be given to Jon Lester, who has shown even more improvement than I had hoped for this season. He’s no longer tentative, he pitches deeper into games with far fewer walks than before. Remember this is the guy who was going to Texas for A-Rod in 2003 – that’s how long he’s been a well-regarded prospect! He’s finally arrived, and its exciting to watch.
