The Red Sox finally got a win over the Yankees in third game of the final series between the two clubs, running the season series to a 9-1 record in favor of New York. In the first game of the series on Friday, the Red Sox coughed up a ninth inning lead on Matt Barnes fourth blown save of the season. Martín Pérez put together another great outing, going six innings and allowing only three hits and one walk while striking out seven. On Saturday, the Red Sox were blown out by a score of 8-0. Starter Chris Mazza gave up four runs (two earned) in four innings, and that was followed up by Dylan Covey giving up three runs in two innings. J.A. Happ wouldn’t need all that run support however as he mowed down the Red Sox to the tune of eight shut out innings with nine strikeouts. In the finale on Sunday, the Red Sox finally beat the Yankees for their only win against them in 2020, coming on the back of another great outing from Tanner Houck. Houck went six innings, giving up only one unearned run, while walking three and striking out four.
Up next for the Red Sox is the Baltimore Orioles for the penultimate series of the season. Don’t forget to subscribe to the Over The Monster Podcast Network where ever you get your podcasts so you never miss an episode.
