Eovaldi Dominant As Red Sox Beat Yankees Again

Noting that the Red Sox had been 4-5 against NY before the series Cashman said, "You wonder what their record would be if they weren't playing us".

As ESPN so boldly wrote yesterday, "As they continue to trudge through a second half that so far has been defined by mediocrity - they are 6-8 since the All-Star break - the odds of them winning the division and locking up a postseason spot that won't require a one-game playoff are looking slimmer and slimmer".

John Ryder tries to figure out if it is World Series or bust for this Red Sox team after theior performance of late and the claims by the fans that this is one of the best Red Sox teams they've ever seen. In the top of the first, NY leadoff batter Brett Gardner was hit by a pitch from Boston's Rick Porcello and took a moment to stare down the right-hander on his way to first base.

If you recall, just a year ago, the MLB (Major League Baseball) team had fired manager John Farrell after the Houston Astros eliminated it from the playoffs in four games on Monday, October 11th.

The Yankees will surely need Kahnle's help as their bullpen is gassed right now. Yes, this year, that road is tougher. Bench coach Ron Roenicke, running the Red Sox after Cora was ejected, had to shuffle his defense after the first. At this point it is the best advice to give the Yankees. Luckily, they have time on their side.

Braves 2, Mets 1: Ace Jacob deGrom suffered another hard-luck loss, when Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies doubled on consecutive pitches in the fifth inning to snap a tie and lift Atlanta to a win at NY. Through the rest of August, the Bombers will only face one team with an above-.500 record - Tampa Bay. Benintendi made them pay with a line drive single up the middle, which scored pinch runner Tony Renda to give the Red Sox the win.

Before you bemoan the myth that the Yankees can not beat losing teams, their actual record is 36-19 against teams below.500.

Boston has a slightly more hard schedule ahead.

The Phillies, in first place in the National League East, have won five in a row while the last-place Marlinshave lost six straight. The Red Sox had inflicted just about every indignity on the Yankees this weekend short of David Ortiz coming out of retirement to walk them off. We acknowledge who they are right now.

The Yankees have been without power hitters Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez in recent days. Gallo hit a scorching liner into the right field seats right after Adrian Beltre started the fourth by reaching on a throwing error by third baseman Renato Nunez.

Yankees rookie Miguel Andujar's horrendous choke on a play any decent fielding major league third baseman should make capped-off Game 4 of the series Sunday night. They are facing the struggling White Sox and Rangers, so they can get through the next stretch without their big boppers for now.

Safe to say, the Yankees' weekend could not have possibly gone worse.
