BOSTON The Boston Red Sox jerseys piled up the runs for a second straight game. This time, a little known rookie held the New York Yankees jerseys lineup in check.
Kevin Youkilis homered twice and tied a career high with six RBIs, cheap Junichi Tazawa jersey stopped New York big bats and Boston snapped a five game skid against the Yankees jerseys with a 14 1 win Saturday.
did a good job, Boston manager Terry Francona said. gets a lineup that is dangerous probably on bad days and they come off swinging the bat like they did (Friday) night. Yankees jerseys beat the Red Sox jerseys 20 11 in the series opener with their most runs and hits (23) since July 20, 2007. But on Saturday, they left six runners in scoring position while Boston continued the slugging that has produced 49 runs in five games, four of them wins.
happened, nobody can change that, said David Ortiz, who hit his 20th homer and drove in three runs. just got to come the next day with a fresh mind and play the game. Simple. You got to keep it simple. Burnett and set a team record with their eighth consecutive multihomer game. Alex Gonzalez also connected for Boston, which has 39 homers in August with eight games left.
Tazawa (2 2) worked out of trouble all day, allowing eight hits and two walks in six shutout innings. In four of them, the Yankees jerseys had runners in scoring position with fewer than two outs but couldn score. And after going 15 for 25 with runners in scoring position Friday, they were 0 for 9 on Saturday.
think it was just the law of averages, Mark Teixeira said. hit so well with runners on base last night. We hit a lot of balls well (Saturday) and they just didn fall in. is expecting a much lower scoring game Sunday night when Boston Josh Beckett and Yankees jerseys ace cheap CC Sabathia jersey try to become the majors first 15 game winner.
would be shocked to see a 15 10 game, Teixeira said.
Tazawa spent the past four seasons with Nippon Oil ENEOS in the amateur Japan Industrial League. He appeared in just 53 games in that stretch, but the Red Sox jerseys signed him to a three year major league contract in December.
was clear in spring training even before games began that Tazawa could pitch inside aggressively, Boston pitching coach John Farrell said. mound presence and the poise that he has we knew that that would be something he would take to the mound today. 23 year old right hander made his major league debut at New York on Aug. 7 and allowed Alex Rodriguez game ending, two run homer in the Yankees jerseys 2 0 win in 15 innings.
In the third inning Saturday, he retired Rodriguez on a called third strike.
am satisfied that I could get a strikeout with him from my slider, Tazawa said through a translator.
He struck out two and completed his longest outing by getting cheap Melky Cabrera jersey to ground into a double play with runners at first and third.
Daniel Bard relieved and allowed Nick Swisher 21st homer in the seventh.
The Yankees jerseys dropped to 15 4 in their last 19 games, a stretch that includes a four game sweep of Boston. Their AL East lead over the Red Sox jerseys fell to 6 games.
Burnett (10 7) got off to a rare poor start when he allowed three runs in the first on a two run double by Ortiz and an RBI single by Jason Bay. In his 15 previous outings, Burnett allowed just one first inning run.
seemed like he was shaking me off a lot, catcher Jorge Posada said. asked for a certain pitch and he threw another one. It frustrating. Red Sox jerseys wholesale baseball jerseys added four runs in the second on Gonzalez first homer since being acquired from Cincinnati on Aug. 14 and Youkilis three run shot.
