5/8 – Yankees at Red Sox
The skies have cleared after it was an absolutely miserable morning here in Boston. Everything’s getting a little brighter and we have baseball, even as the top of the Prudential Building is enveloped in fog. The lineups are as follows …
- By the way, if you’re wondering how the Yankees clubhouse reacted yesterday to A’s pitcher Dallas Braden running his mouth again, Bob Klapisch did a nice job investigating. Highlight of the story – CC Sabathia calling Braden “a clown.” The A’s have also told Braden to give it up, the Bergen Record story states.
- If you were thinking that Josh Beckett’s actions Friday deserved some payback, it would appear that Sabathia was right there with you. With two outs and nobody on in the third, Sabathia fired one at Dustin Pedroia’s rear end – quick and simple evening of the score. However, the move backfired as Victor Martinez belted a two-run homer over the Green Monster to give the Red Sox a 3-2 lead.
