#RedSox Game Summary (September 1) A Gray Day for the Yankees

#RedSox Game Summary (September 1) A Gray day for the Yankees. Sonny Gray, the Yankees wunderkind acquired from the Oakland A’s, has had only middling success as a starting pitcher this year, and against the Red Sox today, he was less than overwhelming. Doug Fister, on the other hand, had another impressive start. He did give up a run in the first inning on doubles by Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge, but settled down after that. The Sox took the lead for good in the 3rd on a 2 run homer by Eduardo Núñez. Big flies by Andrew Benintendi in the 5th and Hanley Ramírez in the 7th locked this one down, with Addison Reed and Craig Kimbrel freezing the Yanks out in the 8th and 9th innings respectively. We are back to a 5.5 game lead in the AL East. Boston beat New York, 4-1, at Yankee Stadium. Record: 77-58. Game 135.27.
