#RedSox Game Summary (September 2) Stalled

#RedSox Game Summary (September 2) Stalled. The Red Sox batters seemed baffled by Yankee starter Masahiro Tanaka, a pitcher whom they can handle ordinarily. They went 6-for-32 with 2 walks against Yankee pitching. Their only run came in the 6th inning, when Eduardo Núñez doubled, and scored on a wild pitch. That was also their only extra-base hit. Rick Porcello had a decent start for Boston until the bottom of the 6th. His only run to that point had been a solo jolt by Chase Headley in the 2nd inning. In the 6th, however, after giving up a leadoff walk and a single, he surrendered a 3 run bomb to Matt Holliday. That was the end of his day, as Brandon Workman came on to finish the inning. In the 7th, Brandon allowed a triple to our old friend Jacoby Ellsbury, who scored on a single by Gary Sanchez. Tzu-Wei Lin, part of the roster expansion, played 2nd in place of Dustin Pedroia, who is being eased back into the lineup after his long layoff. Lin played well. Rafael Devers, on the other hand, seems to be experiencing some rookie jitters. Overanxious at the plate, he is not getting on base so much, though he did get a hit in this game, which he promptly negated when he was caught stealing in an awkward run to 2nd. In the field, he made several mental mistakes and committed an error, his 7th. New York beat Boston, 5-1, at Yankee Stadium. Record: 77-59. Game 136/26.
