In three games against the Red Sox, the Yankees went 2-34 with runners in scoring position. They won two of those games which gives you an idea of just how bad the Sox are. That they didn’t sweep them is proof how how unstable the Yanks are.
Oh yeah, both hits with runners in scoring position came from Derek Jeter. His bloop double in the seventh gave the Yanks the slimmest of cushions and Phil Hughes did the rest, with some help from Boone Logan, David Robertson, and Rafael Soriano. Hughes was outstanding, never mind Boston’s anemic line up. Like David Phelps last night, Hughes delivered.
The Yanks win, 2-0 and remain tied for first with the Orioles.
