The Yanks scored three runs in the first inning but Sergio Mitre coughed up the lead by the end of the second inning. The White Sox later busted a 6-5 lead wide open against Alfredo Aceves as they beat the Yankees 10-5. The Red Sox and Rays, both winners, inched closer to New York.
I caught the second part of the game and man was it ever a dud. Yanks collected 12 hits but left 10 men on base. Long night. Now, the Yanks will have to win today (Fox Game of the Week) and tomorrow to earn a split in the series.
Not an ideal way to start the weekend. But it’s how they finish that counts, right?
