Red Sox Shut Out Yankees In Rain Shortened Game
It was a wet and disappointing night in New York on Sunday.
After long delay on Sunday night, offense proved to be hard to come by. Scoreless into the fourth, the Red Sox finally broke through with a Mike Napoli fielder’s choice that plated Dustin Pedroia. A pair of solo home runs followed for the Red Sox to give them a 3-0 lead before the third rain delay of the night finally ended it. Boston beat the Yankees by that score in only five and a half innings.
Hiroki Kuroda started for the Yankees and was charged with all three of the Red Sox runs in the 5.1 innings he lasted. The previously undefeated Clay Buchholz improved to 8-0 giving up only two hits in the five innings in which the Yankees came to bat.
On Monday, the Yankees will begin a three game series with the Cleveland Indians. Coverage of the game begins at 6:15 on 104.5 The Team.
