P.U. Start with Luis Severino getting punished by Andrew Benintendi for a pair of three-run homers, when he wasn’t walking the bottom of the Red Sox order. Move to Todd Frazier and Didi Gregorius committing costly errors and Aaron Judge’s sliding downhill faster than a luge. Then absorb the fact that outside of Gary Sanchez...

Red Sox 10, Yankees 5: Andrew Benintendi had a day

Andrew Benintendi leads the charge on a good Saturday. The Red Sox have struggled against the Yankees all year long, particularly on offense. After Friday’s crushing loss, they were looking to get back to their winning ways and create further separation atop the American League East. Unfortunately, they were going to have to do it against Luis Severino, one of the more talented pitchers in the American League and a guy that has dominated them this season. Fortunately, Andrew Benintendi was up for the task as he put together one of the best individual games of the season. Led by the rookie...

Red Sox 4, Yankees 5: Addison Reed implodes, Sox snap streak

Red Sox 4, Yankees 5: Addison Reed implodes, Sox snap streak

That was crushing. What an awful way to snap an eight-game winning streak. The Red Sox got an outstanding performance from Eduardo Rodriguez tonight, but Addison Reed and Joe Kelly combined to implode and give the Yankees a win. It’s a little unfair to weigh their contributions equally as Reed was clearly more responsible, but the eighth inning in which they pitched was an all-around horrible frame. As for the offense, they had a few big swings but it was a frustrating night for much of the game. They left some chances with runners in scoring position and then couldn’t come through in...
