Yankees lost 5-3 last night to the Red Sox in a game where tempers flared and it came down to the wire. This is what the Yankee Red Sox rivalry is about, hating eachother and putting on a great game for the fans. The Yankees started off the game hot leading 2-0 through 2 1/2 innings and Severrino looked like he was returning to last years form. Well, that all changed quickly when pre pubescent Andrew Benintendi, sparked the Red Sox offense all night, accumulating 3 hits and scoring twice for the Sox. Severrino couldn't get through 5 innings and allowed 5 runs, bringing his season ERA to a solid 6.42. I know Severrino will find himself, he's a young pitcher with great stuff just needs to put it all together, which will come with time. Red Sox led 5-2 for most of the game after Severrino came out. Chase Headley hit a ball off the Green Monster in the top of the 7th inning he tried to leg it out into a triple but Michael Bradley Jr., threw an absolute laser strike off balance to gun him down at third. Benches cleared as Headley and Rick Porcello, exchanged some not so nice words. The 9th inning rolled around and here's where things got interesting. Craig Kimbrel came on to close out the game, but he couldn't get the job done walking four batters and ultimately walking in a run. Then, the "We want A-Rod" chants came pouring in from the Boston crowd and that's when I got that feeling that I did so many years ago when the rivalry was at its peak and that's when I knew that soon enough it'd be back in full swing. Mark Texiera, struck out looking in the top of 9th with bases loaded to end the game. Yankees lost 5-3 and any playoff hopes we had are now officially dead. Watching this game I saw all the young talent on each side and the future of this rivalry is looking brighter than ever. Nothing is better in baseball than Yankees vs. Red Sox when both teams are competitive, a sight we haven't seen in 7 years.
