Lil’ Severino pitched like a grown man last night, Betances worked a clean 8th, and Chapman narrowly avoided disaster in the 9th, as the Yanks hung on to beat the Sox, 3-1. Aaron Judge hit a home run to right field that looked like a fly ball at first; later, he tumbled into the stands making a fine catch.
Aaron Judge is strong.
The game was memorable for how foggy it was at Fenway. It was spooky-looking and almost spectacular.
Tonight gives Boston’s new Ace, Chris Sale. Yanks have Tanaka on the bump, but let’s face it, it was nice to win last night knowing that Sale is going tonight. And if they manage to win again, well, it’s gravy, baby.
Never mind the filth:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
