The Yankees lineup roared to life yesterday. Tonight it left Boston with a whimper. Held to just two hits, the Yankees dropped tonight’s series finale 4-0, and they’ll leave Fenway having lost two of three. CC Sabathia allowed nine hits, but he limited the damage to one run. It wasn’t a great start, but it might have been enough had the Yankees lineup showed any of the explosiveness that helped them win on Saturday. Josh Beckett retired the last 14 batters he faced, Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth and the Yankees didn’t have a single base runner after Robinson Cano’s fourth-inning single.
