#RedSox Game Summary (September 3) Out of Gas

#RedSox Game Summary (September 3) Out of gas. The Sox could do very little against these Yankees, either in the field or at the plate. Chris Sale seems to have settled into a schedule in which he pitches one game that’s crap, and another in which he is dominant. His last game was dominant. This one was crap. He managed just 4 1/3rd innings, giving up 3 runs on 7 hits with 2 walks and 6 Ks, while throwing a total of 109 pitches. In just over 4 innings. Not good. The three runs came on solo dingers, one by Chase Headley in the 3rd, one one by Matt Holliday in the 4th, and the 3rd by Todd Frazier, also in the 4th. Still, with a 3-0 lead, the game seemed salvageable, even more so after Eduardo Núñez, who had reached on an error, managed to get to third, aided by another error, and scored on a passed ball by Gary Sanchez. Yankee starter Luis Severino had kept the Sox at bay to this point, and finished with just 1 run, but none earned, over 6 innings, on just 2 hits, no walks, and gaining 9 whiffs. The Yanks crushed Sox fans’ hopes in the bottom of the 6th when, after loading the bases on 2 walks and a single, scored on a Gary Sanchez single, then got 3 more on a Starlin Castro double, and 2 more on an Aaron Judge homer, all off Robby Scott. There was a brief moment of excitement in the 9th when the Sox got 2 on, and Sandy León drove in a run with a single, but that was all. Maybe these guys need a David Ortiz motivational speech. They seem to need something. New York beat Boston, 9-2, at Yankee Stadium. Record: 77-60. Game 137/25.
