No animals were harmed in the filming of this game.
The Yankees got 2 hit, and looked absolutely dominated by the Red Sox. There's no other way to put it, the offense was awful.
AJ Burnett gave us 2.2 innings of 5 run ball. Yes A-Rod had an error that cost them 2 of those runs, but the way AJ was pitching it didn't really matter. He could not throw a strike to save his life, and when he did it was deposited in the centerfield seats or banked off the green monster. Tomko and Veras did decenlty in relief, but the game was basically lost when the starter came up in the 3rd inning.
