~~ Yankees 5, Red Sox 2 ~~
For everyone who said CC couldn’t beat the Red Sox.
Of course, it was bound to happen, he wasn’t going to go all season and into the post-season without beating them, just like Lackey can’t go two starts without hitting a batter (yeah I went there). Now he has done it.
He also gave the Sox a taste of their own medicine: after the inning when Curtis was not hit-by-pitch, he hit Ellsbury, later in the game though Lackey got his hits batman, Cervelli. It came back to bite him when Cervelli scored. Matt Albers then hit Posada.
The hit-by-pitches were controversial in this game, in that in the first inning, Granderson was hit and the umpire said no, and in the 9th, the umpire said Saltalamacchia was hit by Mo when he swung, Joe was mad came running out and got thrown out. It didn’t matter, Mo just got the next batter out. End of ball game, Yankees win.
