BOSTON — In the opener of a key four-game series between rivals, New York’s pitching staff was no match for a high-powered Boston offensive attack, as the home team won 15-7 at Fenway Park.
The Yankees are now 6.5 games back of the AL East leading Red Sox.
It all began well for the Bombers with a Didi Gregorius three-run home run in the first inning, off of Brian Johnson. Aaron Hicks then added a solo shot in the second to increase the New York lead to 4-0, early on.
Well, that was fast 😏
⚔️ Didi Gregorius gets the party started ⚔️
The right-hander proceeded to have his worst outing of the season, getting no outs while giving up seven earned runs on five hits. The big hit was Pearce’s second blast, a three-run shot, that put the Red Sox up for good.
While Gregorius and Giancarlo Stanton would homer to cut into the lead, the Boston attack was relentless as they continued to pour it on.
Giancarlo Stanton knows there's still more damage to do.
