Betts hits slam, Red Sox crush Yanks for 9th win in row

Adjust Comment Print

Chris Sale shut down the Yankees' vaunted lineup with eight strikeouts over six one-run innings, and Mookie Betts clubbed a grand slam to punctuate the Boston Red Sox's 14-1 rout of visiting NY on Tuesday night. He was 2 for 6 with an RBI for Las Vegas in its first four games this year as the Mets' top affiliate.

Game 11 featured it all.

Stemming from Tyler Austin's slide into shortstop Brock Holt, which emptied both benches, Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly lit the fuse one more time by hitting the Yankees designated hitter in the back with a 97 miles per hour fastball.

Gary Sanchez belted a pair of moonshot homers. "We've had two big innings - one Sunday and one today".

Boston (9-1) is one of two teams in Major League Baseball with just one loss so far this season. Price was shaking his hand during the inning. He is 15-11 with a 4.53 ERA in 38 career appearances (37 starts) against NY. He surrendered a mammoth home run to Aaron Judge in the fifth, the ball landing well up into the center field bleachers but - so what - it still just counted as one run. When the Yankees finally got on the board for the first time in the fifth, it was on their lone highlight of the night - a 444-foot solo blast from Aaron Judge to dead center that traveled out of the park at 116 miles per hour, according to MLB's Statcast. Just like that, the Yankees led 4-0 before they even needed Masahiro Tanaka on the mound.

The Red Sox exploded for nine runs in a sixth inning that included a Mookie Betts grand slam off reliever Chasen Shreve and an ugly error by third baseman Miguel Andujar.

Cora, meanwhile, cobbled together eight innings from his bullpen. Boone said that will put him down for the next three days and then they will "hopefully by Friday start ramping him back up again".

Tempers had initially flared during the third inning after Austin, New York's designated hitter, clipped Holt on a slide into second base as the shortstop gathered a throw from third baseman Rafael Devers.

Filling in because of injuries to outfielders, the left-handed-hitting Peterson was 3 for 9 with a walk against Baltimore last weekend.
